Painting...The Master Bedroom

Note. Not my room.

Note. I wish it was. wait, scratch that something like it will be soon (I hope!)!

Since July, when we moved, very slowly our new place has taken shape. We love this condo!!! Gone are the days of my insatiable desire to rush into decorating. Inevitably those purchases & impulsive items grow old and I no longer love them the way I should. I don't have the funds, as I suspect most, to constantly redecorate (nor the energy!)

Our living, dinning, kitchen area is well on the way. Perhaps a few more small items would tie it up even more, alas I'm happy where it's at. But lets be honest, I don't know exactly what I want so it's better to hold off! It's a different story for our bedroom.

See photo below, the master bedroom the day we moved in. As in, all I had located were our sheets at this point :)

That paint and terrrrrrrrible blue silk curtains are still standing. Yuck. Is that paint tan? Is it yellow? Is it a real color? No, maybe, and who the heck knows.

Which folks, is why some loving and attention needs to occur in our room. The Hubs and I both vehemently agree without a doubt it's terrible. But here is the dilemma, what do we do. We like grey's but the whole rest of the house is grey's. Hello branch out a bit! Hey, I'm trying. We want a place that feels cozy, yet bright and something we won;t grow tired of quickly. Pinterest to the rescue!

We landed on the following colors: Navy, tan, white, and then a punchy accent color. The wife is thinking hot pink in summer, and moody burgundy in winter (thank you pillow covers). The Hubs hates pillows, so I win that round. Now how do you decide what colors to paint. A new tan wall was the easy obvious choice. Thank goodness (with 18 swatches on the wall) the Hubs said why again are we painting a tan over a tan? Damn hun you are right! Well it is a terrible tan so that's one. But really why tan?

Hubs encouraged me to think of something else, and guys my newest idea was loved! Now to find time to paint! Coming soon will be: a darkkkkkk navy wall behind the headboard, and bright white walls the rest of the way around. We have a large window (beside the bed) that gets only (bright) morning light, which also over looks our deck/common back stairs, so an entire room in navy wasn't really going to work. I don't do caves real well (claustrphobia). ;)

But look, it can be done and can still be bright, yet moody. Just what I wanted!!!! And I think a single wall will make just the right amount of impact! I can't wait!!! Pinned a million versions jsut to reassure myself, be sure to check them out on my 'Home' board.

And the hardest decision since deciding what colors, was actually choosing a navy paint color. The one I have picked is currently Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore. (Yes that means I'm open to changing, but that swatch looks the best! Slight grey (vs purple) undertones in some light, really dark. The twp photos below are hale navy!) I've heard the Aura lines is the best! Low VOC and perfect coverage. 

Version 2 (from this great blog!):

What do you think? Any helpful tips on painting a wall that dark?

Here are a few of the other items I love and or might have already purchased to pull this update together!!! [Bedframe is staying, open to new beside tables, def still need new lighting]


  1. Hale Navy is a GREAT choice !

    1. oh thanks!!! I'm so excited to see it up on the walls.....excited and nervous in the best way!

  2. I hate painting but when I moved to my new place I felt like it needed some color. I painted one wall in the living room a pretty turquoise-y shade of blue and just that one wall made a world of difference. You should totally go for the rich navy accent wall. It will give the room some presence and it won't be too much like a whole room that one color might be.
