After reviewing the possible color choices for our master bedroom we have a winner! Although you all were quiet on comments, I did get color choices from a few of you and the front-runners ended up being Drizzle and Reflecting Pool.
Top – Raindrop | Middle – Reflecting Pool | Bottom – Drizzle
And our winner was… Drizzle! It had a bit more of a darker undertone that we’re more comfortable with and almost has a touch of grey mixed in to make it so. I’m a lover of all things grey so it’s a hit with me and Jake really likes it too! We actually went ahead this weekend and painted the window alcove so we could live with it for a little while and be sure we were ok with this much color (even though it’s a little darker).
It’s definitely color! The beauty of paint is that it’s just paint and if I live with it, and decide I don’t like it, I can just paint it again, so I’m not too worried about it. In order to make this color a bit more neutral and traditional and not so sea-sidey or girly, we’ve put together a pallet that we’re both actually pretty excited about.
The dark brown duvet and recovering the chair in a dark navy blue will bring in more masculine tones that still play really nicely with the aqua tone in this paint color. Mustard yellow/Gold shams will bring a brightness to the bedding along with our white quilt at the end of the bed. Brightly colored floral art and pillows also add more tones and still have a softness to them that makes this room for both Jake and me. Lastly, we want to add a plank wall behind the bed in all white that will elongate your eye in the room and help reflect a bright white light in the space.
I love mood boards like this since and the one I did of a living room here since they can really help me pull together ideas, colors, textures, and patterns without spending any money or waiting for samples. We hope to start painting the rest of the room this weekend and pulling this scheme together! Once we do I’ll be sure to put up a source list of the items above, as well as what we end up with!
Any bedroom or room changes go on for you this weekend? What do you think of mood boards in planning a space?
