If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some colour deliberations happening on Saturday morning. After driving the boyfriend insane constantly changing my mind from one light grey to a nearly identical light grey to another nearly identical light grey, I finally settled on a colour for the remaining three walls in the office: Ben Moore's 'Sweet Innocence'. Hysterical name, I know.
We got to work on Sunday and two coats later, this is what the office is looking like:
I really like it, although I have to admit that it turned out a little more blue than I anticipated. I normally paint test swatches before choosing a paint colour but I was feeling super impatient on the weekend and just wanted to get started - thus, the blueish tint. Luckily, it only looks blue in certain lights and is clearly grey in others (like below).
Side by side with the chalkboard wall, it looks like this:
I've always been a cool-toned grey-over-beige kinda girl, so I was super excited to see how this room would play out once painted. It still feels nice and bright in this room, which was our most important consideration. As I mentioned here, this is the brightest room in the house and we didn't want to risk painting it too dark.
Here are a few little before-and-afters for you to show just what a different feel this room has now.
Now that the base is in place, we just need to layer in a few key pieces and this room is going to be so transformed!
