I can't decide what colour to paint my bedroom. I blame the internet

Saturday, September 12, 2015

I was going to paint my room grey, for the longest time I was set on grey. I have an entire pinterest board dedicated to it's different shades.

But I'm over it.

I want colour! And it's the internet that's caused my change of heart. First Bethanie goes to a beauty salon with walls a gorgeous jade green, and then A Thrifty Mrs paints her downstairs loo a dazzling chartreuse.

I visited a friend and she gave me a lovely Breton blue paint pot sample, and I found myself seeking out inspiration - check out the dark turquoise statement wall over at A Beautiful Mess!

And then of course Pinterest.

To top it off my husband gave me (completely unprompted) a fabulous book for my birthday Bright Bazaar: Embracing Colour For Make-You-Smile Style by Will Taylor, which added further fuel to the colour fire.

I entered into a colour spin that ended in me buying all the paint samples.

And now I still don't know what to do, I like them all! It's safe to say that it will be a green or blue hue but the final decision still eludes me.

I'll be working with a white and blue floral fabric and a mixture of dark wood furniture, and white painted furniture. The room has three good size windows so a dark shade wouldn't feel overbearing. The carpet is coming up, the floorboards stained, and rug will be bought in it's place. So any one of these colours would work.

One sure fire way of narrowing the options is to ask my husband, I can almost guarantee he'll go for one of the paler greens, which is nice enough, but just look at those teal and peacock shades! And the blues.

And the chartreuse.

    1. It's definitely my longest title ever. I like the pale green too, well I like them all so I guess no matter which one I go for I'll like it!

  2. I love the dark blue on the far right; I think in a bedroom it would look lovely and cosy.
