Thank goodness Sherwin-Williams sponsored and helped get this bedroom redone!
I showed you my Whoops! room… remember?
A little bright, if I recall. Thankfully, that photo is all I have left to see of it.
It’s now calm and much more soothing and perfect for Louis to grow up in.
I ended up choosing the subdued colors in green and brown and looks very clean with lots of white, idea from Decor Demon. I wasn’t brave enough to do an all white room like they did (although that’s absolutely stunning). I chose to do the walls in green and chose one wall to do the stripes that they did on the ceiling.
I debated between horizontal and vertical stripes, I really despise painting horizontal stripes because of our totally-not-level house. But in the end chose to do them. Thankfully my husband helped out with marking the lines and taping off.
What I loved most about using the Chip It! tool from Sherwin-Williams is that it pulled the accent colors out of the photo that I would have never noticed. The blues were the perfect accents to brighten up this bedroom!
I took my Chip It! results to the Sherwin-Williams store to buy their zero VOC, Emerald Paint. I thought it was kind of funny when the sales person asked if I’d like to see the paint chips that were selected and suggested I pick a shade lighter of the green. No way! That green was perfect and I’m so glad I stuck to it. The only thing I changed up from the Chip It! results was the color of white to match my ceiling color instead of the ‘Extra White’ that was suggested.
I brought in blue accents in the room decoration. The ‘L’, in the first photo, has been a work in progress since Christmas. The boys helped me put the finishing touches on it in just the right shade of blue! I also found these adorable Train prints from Paper Llamas that she customized to these colors. (The Chip It! tool made it super simple to send her the image with the colors that I was going to be using.)
I feel like I can breathe and relax now in the room. I don’t have to be bouncing off the walls every time I walk into the room finally!
What do you think? Did I make the right choice of colors?
Will a little boy be able to grow up with this bedroom?
