The other morning, I woke up in our master bedroom and thought to myself - I can't wake up in this room anymore. I must do something about this.
This is what our master looked like the week we moved in and 7 months later it still looks like this:
Actually imagine the image above but with around 15 paint samples on the wall.
I can't believe we have lived with this room for that long. So I told both sets of parents instead of gifts this year, we'd really like a donation to the "master bedroom fund" to finally fix this situation.
At first I thought I wanted a light, bright room with creamy walls. After putting up all the samples I knew that wasn't us. I've had dark walls in my bedroom for the past 6 years and I really think it helps me sleep.
And here are the lovely paint swatches we've been sleeping next to for months:
I've decided on "Gunmetal" by Benjamin Moore (the swatch on the left in the above photo). Romantic name, huh? ;)
Although the plan could change (especially when I pick the fabrics), here is the color/texture palette I'm starting with:
I can't wait to get started!
