Happy Monday Friends! Do you ever get the urge for a change in your home? I’m assuming yes. I’m sure we all get that way sometimes. Maybe me more than others ;). I think it goes with out saying that paint is the easiest and cheapest way to get a big impact change in a room. I recently painted our living room over and I thought I would share it with you!
If you follow me on instagram many of you recognize my house for it’s signature pops of teals/aquas and blues. For me that’s the most soothing color. When we first moved in I wanted bold and fun, so I painted our living room Sea Brook by Benjamin Moore. After living with this color for 4 years, I felt it was time for something a bit softer and muted.
I tested many different colors before deciding on a final one. I considered
Top sail, loveeeee top sail!! But it still was a bit too pigmented with aqua. Nantucket fog, and other’s…
in the end I chose Wickham Gray by Benjamin Moore. I liked the subtle undertones of aqua. I always search the color in pinterested to see it in other people’s rooms.
If you like colors that change in the light you’ll love this. Depending on the time of day it can be gray, or slightly green/blue. It’s very dynamic!
I can now display my vintage aqua glass bottle collection as before they would have just blended in completely. I love that they stand out. My most recent one is that seltzer bottle I purchased at Brimfield Antique Market.
I love that the decor, accents and furniture is now the focal point of the room. Instead of the wall color. As much as I loved that pop of aqua, it outshined the room.
It feels much more sophisticated and classic. I hope you agree!
