I finally got around to picking colors for our master bedroom and bathroom so that we could continue updating the bottom half of our house. The master bedroom has the bathroom sink open to the bedroom and the tub and shower are in a room off to the side. I had three basic ideas to test out:
- Teal accent wall behind the bed, teal bathroom walls with the rest of the walls light blue and white ceiling
- Teal accent wall behind the bed, teal bathroom walls with the rest of the walls light gray and white ceiling
- Gray walls in bedroom (same gray as in our living room), teal walls in the bathroom and light blue ceiling
I tested four dark colors in the bathroom, narrowed my options to two, and then tested them on the wall behind the bed. I settled on white ceilings, and selected Valspar Lyndhurst Duchess Blue for the dark color and Valspar Halcyon Blue for the light color. Despite its name, Halcyon Blue is more of a light gray color. In some light, it almost looks white. Even though I decided to stay with white ceilings, I’d still like to try painting a ceiling a non-white color in one of our rooms.
A great photo of the mess after we started moving the furniture around:
Testing the light colors on the wall and the ceiling:
The after view – we finally hung some things on the walls!
We still have to replace all of the trim in the room and paint it white. You can see the ugly light beige colored trim in most of the photos. It’s peeling and it’s ugly and I can’t wait to get rid of it!
While I was hanging things on the walls, I took an unused picture frame, removed the glass, and glued in a piece of metal screen so that I can use it as an earring holder on the wall near the hooks that I hang my necklaces on.
