I painted the spare bedroom again. All of the inspiration I had loved for bedrooms using navy accents had white walls, but the color I used to match the trim just looked yellowed with age. I am in the process of repainting the entire main level and had purchased several test paints to find just the right color. I decided to take one of the ones that didn’t work downstairs and use it in this upstairs bedroom.
The color is by Sherwin Williams and is called Knitting Needles, but because I had test paints at 100% and 50%, I mixed them together to make a 75% color saturation. It was a little too cool of a grey for using on the main floor, but I thought it would work well in this bedroom because I am using a blue (navy) for accents. I am pleased with how it turned out – it is a neutral that brings the room to life and it’s not too dark to compete with the decor. Eventually, I would love to update the trim color in this room, but it wasn’t a priority on this day.
I also moved a spare pair of lamps into this room for the bedside. I spray painted them navy. For an entirely spare bedroom, it is coming along.
