Bedroom Paint Colors

It’s amazing what a little paint can do to affect the mood of a room, don’t you agree? When it comes to painting, it’s important to first establish the aesthetic you want to create for your space, and this is especially true when it comes to bedrooms. Since most people spend at least 8 hours in their bedroom per day on average, you want to make sure that it’s a space that you feel comfortable and relaxed in, and what color you choose for your walls has a lot to do with that! There are so many routes to go when choosing a bedroom color scheme, so we’re here to give some examples of a few of our favorite bedroom hues that work with any style! Take a look:

 

Whites & Light Grays

Feelings associated: Clean, Light, Relaxing, Fresh

These are common wall color choices that are a great backdrop for any type of decor. Make sure to test these hues on the wall before committing to a whole room, as lighter colors like these are especially affected by light and other items in your room.

Blues & Greens:

Feelings associated: Calmness and Tranquility

These soothing colors are perfect for a relaxing bedroom, both in light and dark hues.

Charcoals & Blacks:

Feelings associated: Drama, Elegance, Sensuality, Sophistication

Dark colors such as black and charcoal gray can provide a sense of sensuality and relaxation in a room. If you like the idea of bold hues like these, but may not want to commit to a whole room, try painting the wall your bed is on as an accent wall in a dark color for added drama.

There are many factors that go into choosing a bedroom paint color and it’s important to take into account the overall mood that the color will portray. What colors are you drawn to in a bedroom? Let us know!

Wallpapered Ceilings

Wallpaper: it’s not just for walls people! A ceiling is a surface in your home that may get overlooked during an initial design, but that shouldn’t be the case. Wallpapering your ceiling can give added personality to a room where there may not otherwise be much going on. If you’re looking to spruce up your space, consider adding extra color and pattern to your room with wallpaper on the place you least expect it- above you. Check out these gorgeous examples of wallpapered ceilings to see for yourself!

 

The neutral palette in this room is beautiful by itself, but it’s given more visual interest with the use of this oversized malachite paper on the ceiling:

Love the added bit of color & pattern that this paper brings to this space:

New for Spring
Comments Off on New for Spring

Can you believe it’s already March?! We’re loving the glimpses of warmer weather we’ve been getting lately, and it’s making us ready for Spring to be here in full force. For us, Spring is a time to refresh from the cool, dull winter weather, and rejuvenate our lives and our homes with fresh, bright feels. Luckily, we’ve gotten in SO many new items in the shop to help achieve that! Take a look at some of our favorite new Spring items:

Spring Bedding from some of our favorite brands, like Nina Ricci, Pom Pom at Home and John Robshaw:

Lots of fun accessories for your side tables, bookshelves, coffee tables and nightstands! We’ve gotten in a ton of new picture frames, vases, bookends, decorative boxes, bowls and coffee table books that are small pieces to incorporate into your current decor that make a big impact in freshening up your home:

Gallery Wall Inspo
Comments Off on Gallery Wall Inspo

Happy Friday! If you’ve got an empty wall somewhere in your house and no weekend plans, this post is especially for you. Gallery walls are such an easy way to cover a lot of wall space and make a big impact in a room. The ways that you can arrange your art & wall decor are limitless- each gallery wall is different depending on the space it needs to fill. Whether you’re wanting to make this a weekend project, or just get inspired for future projects, keep on reading for some of our favorite gallery wall installs!

These collections work in any room in your house. They’re seen often as a focal point in living rooms:

Or making a grand entrance in an entryway:

And are a great option for an empty stair wall!

Although gallery walls are often seen in a random assortment, they don’t always have to be! Depending on the space you’re trying to fill, a layout with more order to it may be ideal. We love the grid gallery walls in these rooms- they fit the space so nicely and give such a clean aesthetic:

Again, it’s important to design for your space. Sometimes it’s best to just use 4-5 items so as to not overcrowd.

Gallery walls aren’t just for photos people! Add sconces, decorative items, vintage odds & ends from past trips, and even mirrors for a collected, visually appealing wall!

Picture ledges are great for adding dimension to your curation:

Think outside of the box when it comes to picture placement! They don’t always have to be centered over a particular object 😉

How adorable is this gallery wall made up of kid art?!

Pro Tip: If you’re struggling to find the best placement for your photos/items, the best thing to do before committing to nails is to cut out outlines to scale of what you’re trying to hang. This allows for customization without the mess of having to pull out nails. Some companies, like West Elm, even include these cutouts with their picture frames! Use cardboard paper or even newspaper, and hang with painter’s tape so it’s easy to move around until you’ve found your perfect layout.

We hope this post has inspired you to create a gallery wall of your very own!
