I've had green on the brain for the last couple of weeks so I was very excited to have a couple of days off due to the holidays and put my time off to good use. Armed with a Kate Spade box I went off to Home Depot to find the perfect shade. I found a perfect match and got to spend two days getting it perfect. My bedroom walls have a Candlelight effect on them. That along with steam/water stains from a humidifier made it quite a process to get the wall primed properly, but in the end it worked out perfectly.
*Poor Jon actually had to do most of the work. I decided to go into the city one day and visit my sister so he was on paint duty. (Isn't marriage great? I get the ideas and I have my other half implement them.)
I finally opened up my Christmas present and was busy playing around with all the settings last night. Here are some pictures of the space.
I love the way the green pops next to the white bedding. I just ordered some great pillows for the bed to add a touch of the green on the bed as well. I also have an idea for what is going to hang above the head board. More on that in a different post.New curtains for the other side of the room are being ordered as well as making a new slipcover for a reading chair we have in the room. Fabric samples are on their way! I love this new introduction of the color green into the room. It gives it a completely new vibe.
This is Jon's nightstand. I got these lamps a while ago and was just storing them, because I loved them so much. I had to defend them on a regular basis, because Jon always wanted to get rid of them,because they were wasting space. Last night I went out and got new shades and they are now in their new home.
The room is no way near being finished. Lots of little touches that need to get done before the whole room is picture perfect, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peak at what the color looks like.
