I don’t know what got into me, but something possessed me to attempt to update our bedroom the week of Thanksgiving. The room needed some contrast. The carpet was light, the walls were light, I selected light bedding and art and nothing was really taking dominance.
You may remember my plans to track down the perfect shade of graphite for the walls. Well I decided to give Martha another shot and ended up with Seal by Martha Stewart Living for the walls and Sharkey Gray for the ceiling. They are perfect. It is darker on the walls of course, but it gives that perfect almost gray hue and leans ever so slightly to the warm side (which is great for a bedroom).
Please excuse the photos. With a dark room you need the perfect light to get a nice photo and this weekend has been pretty dreary. I haven’t been home at the right time of day to get a great shot. And I know the bed is unmade. I snapped these before we dashed off to Thanksgiving dinner. That lamp will be getting a makeover at some point this winter as well and I’m on the hunt for some lovely throw pillows (or fabric to make some).
