new bedroom color.

well, folks, i did it. saturday of this weekend, i spent the day doing absolutely nothing, so yesterday i felt the need to be extra-productive. i painted my bedroom walls & ceiling. i know i just painted my bedroom last year, but this is what i do -- paint and repaint. i spend a lot of time staring at design magazines and blogs, so when i feel inspired, i almost obsess over it until i HAVE to change it. it's crazy, i know.

anyway, i have a few photos for you to get a peek of what i did:

(i may have moved our downstairs end tables up to the bedroom...the turquoise ones just weren't fitting in up here, and they look cute in the living room now)

i was going to take down my ikea shelves (ive had these things forever!), but i decided to paint over them instead. i painted them the wall color, and now i think i really like them. they blend in nicely, give a fresh look to the shelves, and still provide a little display and storage area.

i have lots more plans for things to do in here, so stay tuned. i plan to build a headboard, so watch out for that project coming soon...

  1. I just knew this was gonna happen. I love your new color. It seems very peaceful and relaxing. I recently finished "stealing" your bedroom idea. I am so glad I found your bedroom before.

  5. That's the same color we're planning to paint our master bedroom in our new house- love it. Could it possibly be Benjamin Moore's Quiet Moments? That's our top pick right now.

  7. I have the same lamp - got it from Home Depot. Being a crafty girl I hot glued ribbon around the edge of the shade it makes it look more expensive. You could do a matching color or an accent for a pop of color.

  9. thanks, everyone! hannah - it is veryyyy different. much calmer. i have a tendency to go from one extreme to the other :)

    hilary - it's not! its actually a allen + roth color from lowe's. i looked up your color though, and i think mine is a bit greener/bluer, and your's is grayer.

  10. I'm madly in love with this color and re-read the post at least five times looking for the name of it...I'm sure you'll share it when you reveal the rest of the room, but please know I'm on the edge of my seat!
