navy is the new black…1st round

Last weekend we decided to repaint the bathroom.  When it hit me I needed to redo our bedroom.  I had been toying with the idea but I was set on finishing the living room first.  Well I’m still on the search for the most amazing oversized club chair that won’t break the bank (more on that in a few weeks).  After painting the bathroom and in between Pinterest breaks I found the inspiration that I simply needed to have.  I had my hubby take down the odd shelves that were on one side of my bed and the vision just starting pouring out.  I knew I wanted to go with either a deep tone probably in the blue family or a very light grey to contrast with our woodwork white woodwork (that also needed repainted).


Do you like the weird concrete chimney thing in the middle of our accent wall??

On Tuesday night we headed out to Home Depot after I spotted a must have color in the HGTV magazine (ps if you haven’t seen this mag you need to get your hands on it).  It was Deep Irish Sea by Ralph Lauren and it was so amazing but me being reluctant I went ahead with my original plan and purchased a very light grey sample as well.  We got it on the walls as soon as we got home and knew that deep navy cobalt was the winner!



Needless to say I painted the entire room and wood work this past weekend and the color against the white is so dreamy and romantic.  I am still in the process of finishing the accent wall so more on that next week.  I am starting to collect things to make the room cozy and more like our own.  I created an inspiration board of things that I’m feeling for our room.

What are your must have’s for having a soft and serene place to relax?
