Here's how the room currently looks:
I really wanted to use a dark blue but wasn't sure if a deep tone would work in such a small room. So, before buying the paint, I played around with Benjamin Moore's Personal Color Viewer 3.0 (the paint I got is not BM...it's Behr, but their "Paint Your Place" application wasn't working very well).
Depending on the photo you upload, the Color Viewer takes some maneuvering. Once you learn how to set the paint areas, it's smooth sailing from there. The fun part is clicking through the paint chips and testing any or all of them without getting a brush dirty. Ultimately, the tool confirmed my inclination to use blue, but it was nice to see how different shades would look in the space.
The two images below served as inspiration. I fell in love with this wall color in the Austin boutique, Mercury and have been dying to use it.
A similar shade was put to work in West Elm's catalog. They used a color from their Benjamin Moore collection, ben. It's called Newburg Green.
the blue will definitely make a stunning impact. can't wait to see it finished!ReplyDelete
Ohhhh can't wait to see how it turns out compared to the pic!! Great choice of color!ReplyDelete

Love that color, could you tell me where you got your curtains? Thats exactly what I have been looking for for my room. firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
I love the color combinations you use through out your home; I currently am on a Black & White kick and am inspired to throw in some orange for a pop of color. FYI, have you checked out Houzz? http://www.houzz.com/ you really should post your photos for their idea books, I think yours would be a huge hit! Plus you can create your own idea book from other users photos.ReplyDelete
I love this color- I painted my bookcases a Benjamin Moore peacock blue- I think was Deep Ocean. Either way, love this color and I cant wait to see it in your bedroom!ReplyDelete
My guest room is done in white, orange and red. I would never have thought to use blue as a wall color, but I love the way your simulated version looks. Looking forward to seeing your finished product.ReplyDelete
I recently found your blog and simply love your house. I was looking on the walmart website and found a duvet cover that I believe is the same as yours.ReplyDelete
Did you alter the duvet to make the curtains?
