Good morning! I know, it's been awhile, I am sorry! We are leaving on our first vacation as a foursome next week, and I've been busy getting our life together. But I had to take a break from my organizing and packing to come to Melissa's "My Favorite Paint Color" party!
I am always drawn to warm colors. So it's surprising that one of my favorite colors in my house is this pretty robin's egg blue in my bedroom.
It looks so pretty with the different wood tones in the room, and the silver frames and other little goodies look great against it.
I've added some warm-colored fabric, brown leather, and a cozy cream blanket so that the "cool" factor doesn't come through too strongly. And I bought some amazing brown and cream toile fabric to make window "mistreatments" (a la Nester). Yeah, we'll see how long it actually takes me to get those done!
This color is actually my own creation, mostly because I bought a color that looked WAY too dark on the walls, so I just kept adding white paint until I liked it! But because Melissa is one of my favorite bloggers, I wanted to be able to give you chickies a name for this color, in case you want to get it for yourself! So I headed off to Lowe's and got this paint sample. It matches my color exactly.
To copy this lovely blue, go out and get Valspar (Lowe's house brand) in "Rising Tide." Hope you love it as much as I do!
And now, head over to 320 Sycamore to see lots of other favorite paint colors!
