going green with valspar reserve
i love a clean slate, and we all know i love a guest bedroom.
i teamed up with valspar reserve paint to take this bland beige bedroom to the next level with a moody dark green makeover.
when designing a room from scratch, i always choose the paint color last. here's why: a design is like a puzzle, and each piece, from the prints and patterns, to the colors and finishes, needs to fit together to tell a story.
a vintage fabric may be one-of-a-kind ... an antique chest may have a weathered patina ... and a handpainted lamp could be an inky indigo that can't be duplicated. these pieces are unique, and together, create the perfect mix of layers that lend authenticity to a design, so they should always come first.
no matter what you come up with, having these special selections in place ensure your design is a reflection of your life. whatever the mix, you can count on valspar to have a color that will tie the design all together. it may take years to hunt for the perfect treasures to complete a room, but finding a paint color to coordinate from the over 3,000 colors in the valspar library is a cinch.
my inspiration images for the room, once we had made our selections, all included sultry greens with bright pops of white -
valspar reserve with hydrochroma technology means that you get super-strength pigments that deliver deeper, more vibrant color. a bedroom is just the place for deep moody color - you'll feel wrapped in a cocoon!
what a difference a coat makes!
check back in a few weeks as we complete the design with the install of all those special pieces i mentioned. now that our slate is green we're ready to build a beautiful room!
