I think beige walls look old and dirty. There, I said it. When I moved into my new Austin home, every wall and ceiling in the house was beige. Slowly, I’m covering up the watered down builder’s beige. This weekend, Anthony helped me tackle our bedroom.
Here are the beige befores:
I learned from our powder bathroom, that textured walls in dark colors should be painted with flat paint, nothing else. The navy looks darker in person than in pictures. It goes up the wall, across the ceiling and down the other wall creating a faux canopy. I love how it turned out. The dresser, the nightstands, and the P will eventually change colors.
Accents will be bright blue. I think that will help the room feel less like Hillary Swank’s home (well styled, but too masculine for me).
I bought Vincent from the Main Street Arts Festival in Fort Worth two years ago. He finally found a (temporary) home. Cue Carrie Underwood. He’s too small for the space, but it feels good to finally have art on the walls.
What did you do this weekend?
