I know the story of our house building is still in the beginning stages, but I want to pop in from real time for a minute and tell you – we’re putting color on the wall!! It’s probably my favorite thing. There is just something about bold color – I can’t stay away! I love being part of the Behr DIY Experts and trying new colors. Have you looked at the new Color Trends for 2015? I love them!
The four categories for colors in 2015 are Deep Dreams, Frosted Pastels, Social Brights, and Nuanced Neutrals. I love how they’re separated into those groups, because then you know that all the colors in that group play well together.
I am drawn to the Deep Dreams and Social Brights. I went with the Deep Dreams pallet for the girls’ bathroom:
I painted the walls in Liaison, which is a cranberry color. Then I loved that it accents well with Essential Teal. I used the teal in the shower curtain and floor mat, and then found sound towels that pull all of those colors together.
Obviously we’re still working on things like trim and lighting, but I was just super excited to actually get color on the wall. It’s a big sign to me that things are winding down, and I just love how color brings personality and warmth to a home. Makes a house a home.
The before, and in progress views:
And another sneak peek – – I couldn’t get over that Essential Teal, so I actually choose it for all the walls in my laundry room – eek! So far it’s my favorite room in the house – –
