Hi, friends! You know I love changing up our living spaces, right? Today I’m excited to team up with Dutch Boy Paint to share a quick and colorful update that we did in our bedroom.
It’s amazing how much color can change the mood of a room, even with just one colorful wall!
My point of inspiration for this update was this beautiful quilt. I love the colors and the painterly pattern.
The only problem was, with all these gorgeous colors in the quilt, what color should I paint the wall? Almost any color would match. So many choices!
We used Photoshop to make a rough visualization of how the room would look in different colors! The first photo is the before. The paint colors that we considered (but didn’t choose) are Bittersweet and Sour, Submarine, Medieval Blue, Girl Talk, and Brilliant Impression.
Ultimately we chose East Bay, because it’s a color both Jeremy and I love, and it really fits our personalities and style. And I have to admit that while I’m a fan of of the classic, metal paint cans, it’s hard not to love the convenience and ease of the Dutch Boy paint containers. Having a twist-off top and a grip on the side made opening, closing, and pouring the paint SUPER simple.
The best part about this update was the time it took to complete, just two afternoons! Painting just one wall, rather than an entire room, is a great way to change up your space without an intense time commitment. For those of you who, like me, LOVE change, it’s a great solution.
Thanks so much for taking a peek at our bedroom update! xx- Elsie
