I’ve been putting off the master bedroom. Mostly because I can’t come to any sort of decision about it. It’s still the same dark grey walls and ceilings that the living/dining room started out as. At first, I thought, “Green!” because green is my favorite color. But the kitchen’s green and the hall bathroom is about to be green. That’s a lot of green, even for me.
Being unable to come to a decision, I’ve just focused my thoughts on other parts of the house. Then, I saw this:
D’oh! That’s the exact same shade of grey that is on MY walls and ceilings! I’ve said it before: I don’t dislike the color. But imagine moving into a small house that was ALL that color. It’s a bit…sad. Yet the more I paint, and the less grey the rest of my house becomes, the more I seem to like it in the master bedroom. It’s warm and cozy. And I’ll tell you, it gets DARK in that room. Which makes sleeping that much more wonderful.
I think the important thing is to play with textures, the way these folks did. The velvets, the woods, the leaves. Pops of color are easy, but I’d need to work on getting texture into our master bedroom.
Not long after finding this, I stumbled upon another grey room:
Once again : Texture. I’ve gotta say, though, the idea of keeping the master bedroom grey is kinda growing on me. What are your thoughts? Love it? Hate it? Don’t care cause you don’t sleep there?
