Dressing My Walls: Blue Bedroom

One of the changes I made this month for Dress Your Walls was to paint the bedroom blue. It used to be a drab beige with a weird brown border along the bottom (this was pre-CasaSugar move-in), and it took two coats of low-VOC primer and two more coats of low-VOC paint to get the color right.

Cool colors, such as blue, brown, and grey, are thought to promote concentration and calmness. so they're great for bedrooms and offices. I know that I feel calm and happy whenever I walk into our new blue bedroom.

You chose a nice blue. I'm curious about your gourd. I have a similar gourd so I wondered where you got yours and if you know much info about it. Mine was given to me from my great-aunt and I don't have any info about it. It looks to be south American and has Alpacas on it.

haha My bedroom at my parents house is also that exact shade of blue too! I love it. And same as you rivrchild, my mom is always asking if I'm sure I don't want her to repaint it a different color and it does look great with a white trim!

That is almost the exact shade I chose for my bedroom in my parents' new house. Only trouble is I don't live there anymore (okay i take that back, that's no trouble at all!) But I do miss my pretty blue walls. My mom thought I was crazy when I chose it. But it's so striking with a bright white trim!

I love that supersaturated blue against the wood tones! What shade is that?
