The thing is, I’m almost finished painting my craft room, and now I’m getting excited about the finishing touches. Should I even really be worrying about finishing touches until the other major projects are done and I’m at least moved in? I don’t think I can help it. Here’s what I’m working with now:
Ashley from The Vertical House used this color in her bedroom, and I fell in love with it (Valspar’s “Grand Hotel Mackinac Blue”, found at Lowe’s). She also suggested Behr’s “Swiss Coffee” for the trim, but to get Behr paint I’d have to drive all the way to Cedar Rapids to Home Depot. Instead, I found a comparable color in Valspar’s paint lines, “Sawyer White”. Here they are together:
The white looks a little dirty here, but in example images, it looked lovely, nice and warm and not too stark. Rah! And then there are always window treatments to think of. I’m thinking single-panel curtains, either with tab tops and wall hooks to sweep them aside, or else pocket panel curtains with ribbon tied to keep them in check, like the ones in Nicole’s kitchen over at Making It Lovely.
Here are some possibilities from Reprodepot and Sew Mama Sew for curtain fabrics.
What do you think?
