I updated my bedroom after long weeks of debating what color would make my nights sweeter. You know I’ve had a thing for green, we talked extensively on the blog about the green trend and the plant trend that are really hot in 2016. I looked at so many colors, but my heart was always leading me to one shade of green or another. Then I asked you guys on Instagram for your opinion – thanks again to all who participated in the discussion – and got many ideas of fantastic shades, but my heart was still singing green. I looked at magazines, Pinterest, and some online blogs and websites for inspiration, and I finally found the color of my dreams : a dark and moody green. A quick trip to my Home Depot store, and a long talk with the Behr paint expert – who, by the way, was really awesome and patient, and even took the time to consult my Pinterest inspiration board to help me find my true hue! – and off I went with my Marquee gallon of paint. Here is the making-of and the final result. Maya kindly agreed to be my assistant on this project – don’t we look like real pros in our painters’ overalls, fo’ real?!
I’m in love with my all grown-up bedroom. I love the way my wall color changes in hues throughout the day depending on the light, how everything looks sophisticated, yet simple. It’s amazing what color does to a space, instantly adding character, depth and texture.

I also placed a small mid-century low table/bench scored at my local thrift store at the end of my bed, and I think it adds another sophisticated element to the ensemble. My friend Tulipina‘s gorgeous bouquet of Spring flowers is the final touch of goodness, don’t you think? I’m really pleased with the result and super happy I finally found my #truehue!
What’s your favorite Behr color? How do you find inspiration for color updates in your interior?
