The paint is Tinsmith, by Sherwin Williams....it is a wonderful gray/blue that really changes with the light. It is a color chameleon, which is why you will now have Boy George stuck in your head. Sorry 'bout that!
I love the gold shimmer geometric pattern in the curtains.
This is probably the truest shot of the color.
The carpet that is staying-at first i brought out the maroons and golds, but after seeing so many retreat like bedrooms via blogs, i wondered if i couldn't bring out the blues instead. I think it works.
That's the catalyst for the painting, that mirror. Killing two birds with one stone, it houses my dangly necklaces and allows me to see them all nicely (without worrying my cat is eating all the beads) and of course it provides a full length mirror. This is a CSN buy, with no code or no winnings, and i have to say it is sturdy and gorgeous. They also price matched it with no problem because i found it cheaper somewhere else. I like my little art corner highlighting free vase.
You can see the difference in color from these pics above and below...the top one looker grayer, and the bottom bluer. Chameleon like. Yard sale bird pillows pair maroon and blue.
Ha, this picture is so me. I like "the finer things" sometimes, and the arts, but then i kick it in my Vans.
Pretty calming to the eye After/ Harsh and jarring Before
The cream and gold furniture looks even worse against the painted wall, but bedroom sets are expensive, you guys! Where have you gotten yours? It's funny to see how our tastes change with the influence of others, don't you think??
