If you've never read my blog before, you might look at these before pictures of our guest bedroom and think - wow, poor girl, she has to paint over the scary purple walls that the previous owners left behind.
However, if you've read of my past experiments in paint color, you would realize that I tend to make terrible choices in the perfect hue department.
Recall 2009, when I decided to paint an accent wall "Purple Blanket," and the result was pretty scary. The paint chip insinuated a rich deep color, but the real life look was Barney. Evil Barney.
So a year or so later, I finally got around to changing it. A few hours and lost brain cells later from the Kilz, I had a nice white wall ready to go. Bye Bye Barney. I painted that wall "Manhattan Mist" like the other walls are, and I'm very happy with the result. The color is a warm gray with just a touch of purple. It goes well with the black furniture and bedding, and I can bring in purple as a small accent color, instead of giving it a whole monster wall.
I still need to decorate above the bed. I've had these three wooden frames from Ikea for quite a while now, just haven't yet found the perfect fabric to wrap them in yet.
So, this means we have a non-scary room for guests now - any takers??
