Two weeks ago, Maebyfunke asked me for advice on painting her bedroom to match her new DwellStudio Regency Bedding. I advised her to try a soft color, such as a cool, blueish green or a warm, pale yellow.
Well, Maebyfunke made quick work of repainting her bedroom. Here's how her bedroom looked before she started painting. Curious as to see what color she ended up with? Find out when you
Maebyfunke explains, "I ended up going with a pale grayish blue (this is after I tried a pale mauve which turned out bright lavender up on the wall...think girl's nursery lavender — not what I was going for). The shade is called Yarmouth Blue from Benjamin Moore. I think it really makes the inside of the design on the bedding pop."
Regarding the rest of the room, Maebyfunke writes, "I got the headboard from a rummage sale for $12. It's a room divider/screen with removable picture frames. I removed the picture frames that slipped into each square hole and spray painted everything silver. Then I decided to put the frames up on the wall instead of back in the screen. I had two lamps from ikea that I just mounted to the headboard — instant reading lamps."
I love the Yarmouth Blue, and the screen looks very cool as a headboard. Nice work, Maebyfunke!
