A Fresh Coat of Paint (Before and After)

BEFORE:

AFTER: 

Sometimes it takes me a loooooong time to get around to things.  About a year ago, I was thinking of painting our master bedroom.  Remember this?

With the help of my friend Carol, who is an excellent painter, I finally have new gorgeous dark blue/grey walls (the paint colour is Benjamin Moore’s Gentleman’s Grey). There really wasn’t anything wrong with the old colour, but for some reason I can’t explain, I really didn’t like it. I think it was just too cheery for me.  I love the new colour – I think it’s sophisticated and a little bit moody.  It also looks fantastic with all the white accents in the room (and the yellow accent on our Dwell Studio duvet cover) – the high contrast really makes the colours pop.  I’m so pleased with the results, and I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner!  Oh well, better late than never.
