Let’s focus on something fun, shall we?! I feel like we all need it right now. I’ve been sitting on these pictures for awhile for a number of reasons, but mostly because I haven’t had the time to share them (it’s hard to post in the summer because my boys are home. Then, my oldest son got COVID at the beginning of the school year. He had mild symptoms and is doing well. I am so grateful.). And now that I sit down to share them, I want to procrastinate sharing them even more, because well, there is a darn pink candle that ended up looking like a penis in every picture (well, and the room isn’t done, done)!!!! Ha! But I’m posting anyway because done is better than perfect, and perfection is the enemy of progress (or good enough). AND regardless of all those reasons, I LOVE my new blue room and want to share it with all of you (pink penis candle and all). I’ve edited the pictures, so it’s not so terribly distracting, but I’ll include an unedited photo at the end (because aren’t you curious? Ha!).
Thanks to all of you, the room is painted the prettiest blue paint color (Parma Gray by Farrow & Ball). You may recall, I asked on stories for help selecting a blue paint color that was similar to my inspiration photo. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. So happy, in fact, that I want to paint the ceiling blue, too.
I love it so much, but I knew I needed to tie the blue around in the room (see progress picture below). The sofas are old and looking a little drab, so I thought adding some fresh, new throw pillows might do the trick! I headed over to Weidner Hasou because I saw some pretty pillows on their website, and I think they really brought the room together! Thanks again for your help, Genni!
