LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER
The Living Room paint job is finished!
PAINT COLOR: SHERWIN WILLIAMS “SEA SALT” IN BENJAMIN MOORE REGAL PEARL
TRIM – BENJAMIN MOORE CHANTILLY LACE
Just wanted a change…and BOY the change is amazing…the room feels bigger, taller, and yet…cozier..if that makes any sense at all…
I repainted the interior of the pink cabinet…from BM Springtime Bloom…
….to a slightly warmer and softer BM Paradise Pink!
…and LOVE the results!
…the deciding factor with Sea Salt WAS how it changes color with the light and with the surrounding colors…FROM GRAY to BLUR/GRAY…to BLUE/GRAY/GREEN……AND BACK TO GRAY ….I love it.
…I made one MINOR mistake while painting the room. I taped off ALL of the trim, including the picture Moulding and the 3 windows and the pocket doors and the entrance door…literally the taping alone took 1.5 hours…I painted ALL the trim. halfway through I ran out of paint and switched to a new can. It was only when I Had finished and was closing the can did I realize that I had switched from “Chantilly Lace” to “Mountain Peak White”… I started to rectify my mistake…except I could not tell where the paint was different…so …I let it go! But the doors and surrounding trim are all CHANTILLY LACE.
I DESIGNED THIS FABRIC ON SPOONFLOWER (IT IS FOR SALE BY THE YARD ) AND MADE OUR LIVING ROOM TAB BACK DRAPES. (TUTORIAL HERE) . I LOVE HOW BRINGT AND HAPPY AND SOPHISTICATED THEY ARE! FROM A DISTANCE THEY LOOK LIKE IKAT BUT WHEN YOU GET CLOSER, YOU CAN SEE THE HORSES FACES. I USED A PAINTING OF MINE TO CREATE THE PATTERN.
I am in LOVE with the SEA SALT!
