I’m pretty sure that I’ve previously mentioned that in any home that my daughter and I have lived in, my bedroom has always been the last room to get any decor love. In fact I’ve never really done much more than hang curtains or throw a new pillow or two on the bed…but that just wasn’t cutting it anymore.
After our move back here to California last Spring I determined that I would finally treat myself to a space that makes me happy. It is the first thing I see when I wake up every day, and the last thing I see every night after all. So when Sherwin-Williams reached out to share its HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Interior Paint launch, I was immediately inspired to finally tackle my dream project.
Here’s a little reminder of what my room looked like before. You can see that it really needed some love!
I shared the big reveal with you last week (you saw it, right?!), and today I want to share the mood boards and my color choices from the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Softer Side color palette that I used to inspire the final room makeover.
My vision for my bedroom was a to create a space that feels intentional. I love white paint as much as anyone, but with all my mismatched furniture and our horrendously textured walls (neither of which I can afford to change at the moment) I knew that I would have to do something major with paint to transform the space. After perusing the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Softer Side color palette, I finally decided on Peppercorn; a dark moody grey for the main bedroom walls…and for my mini walk-in closet I fell in love with the soft feminine Charming Pink. I love the juxtaposition of the delicate pink closet with the sultry grey walls of my room!
If you didn’t catch it already, be sure to hop over to last week’s post to see how I pulled all the details together that were inspired by the paint colors and mood boards here.
So now that I have a few painting projects under my belt, I feel like I can say two things for sure. The first is that the right prepping steps and tools will make all the difference in the world between a successful painting job and a not-so-great one. AND that when you have finish edging your space in a dark paint color you are going to question your sanity. It will look scary (every time) but trust me…keep going with it, and it will be well worth it!
Now what do you say about winning 5 gallons of HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Interior Paint?!
