Since moving in 4 years ago the only thing that's changed in the bedroom is the addition of furniture and curtains! Bedrooms are such awkward rooms to decorate with all that big heavy furniture, so I admit i've put if off for too long. But thanks to Valspar Paint UK and the Valspar Paint Club I have the 'umph' to start it! Heres what it did look like... (including a cat!)
samples it just felt a little dull so I took inspiration from this seasons trends and moved onto blues...
Id recently picked up a new duvet set from Sainsbury's in a delicate Hydrangea flower print in shades of blue and grey so I took a pillow case with me to my favorite place...Valspar's wall of colours in my local B&Q! There I matched it up with their 'Folk Blue' I also grabbed a sample of 'New York City Winter' an off white 'greige' (warm but light beige/grey) Both looked great next to the light silver grey of my furniture. (Which i've also recently painted myself, more on that soon!)
After settling on the colours (which is made so much easier by the large and accurate valspar paint cards and samples) I got to work on prep. When drastically changing wall colours I find that it makes the job alot easier and quicker to go around the top few inches by the ceiling with white first (see top middle picture above) this means you can cut in a fresh line rather than have to fuss about covering up the old colour. To do this I used Valspar's multi surface primer.
I love the way a bedroom can feel different every time you change the sheets, for these pictures I picked out a hint of lime green and stole a few nik naks from my dining room, next week my covers will be sailing boats so ill stick to just blue and white. For the week after i've got my eye on this set in Next... :-p
By sticking with blue its also a great way of introducing floral patterns without it becoming too 'girly'!!!
Hope you like it!
