Hello! Welcome back from the long weekend! I hope you all put it to good use, spending a little QT and appreciating our service men and women.
I got a little bit of painting done on my navy bedroom--not as much as I had planned, but enough to confirm that, once again, I made a good choice ;) I'll spare you photos as this point, because apparently I'm a little ADD when it comes to painting. I have half a wall painted here, a whole wall there, and a corner over there.
So I thought I'd share with you my other plans to pull this room together after it's all painted. (Not the best of my moodboards, but I just wanted to throw something together to give you a better feel of what I'm going for.) Here she is:
And that just includes the major room items--no moodboard could fit everything. The room is so big it also serves as my home office. There is also a very large dog pallet in the far corner (way too large for a wiener dog and wiener-russell, but they somehow take up all the space), and a very comfy and underutilized chaise lounge that either needs a deep cleaning or just a slip cover. I'd also like to add a wing-back chair for a reading nook, but that's probably just because the room is so big I'm looking for ways to fill it. Maybe next time I'll send you a room lay-out so you can see what I'm talking about!
Hopefully you can see how using a bold color correctly can create a wonderful space. If you walked into the room empty with just navy walls, you may say "this isn't for me." But (as I plan) by using whites/neutrals, metallics, woods, and soft finishes, it turns into a cozy, warm, and relaxed bedroom. A place I look forward to retiring in at the end of the day. You don't even have to use "a lot of whites" as some people might suggest when selecting a dark color like navy. I'm not going for a white and navy room--too much white would just create a lot of contrast, making the navy stand out. I want the navy to stand back, creating a soft backdrop for the room. So that people walk in and instead of thinking "wow, navy was a bold choice," saying "wow, what a beautiful bedroom!"
Until next time!
