Our master bedroom is ready for a make-over. We've been in this house 3 years and I haven't done much in the way of decorating or painting to make the house our own style. So after purchasing the wingback chair at an antique shop a few weeks ago, I found my color palate and started collecting paint chips. This is one of the walls after painting. The true color is a bit darker than it's showing up here. It's dark enough that I'm looking for a lighter shade of blue-green.
This is the same wall before I painted. It took several hours to get that wallpaper border off.
This is the chair that gave me the color inspiration. I found 3 fabrics that coordinate to make toss pillows. I'll have to make a quilt to go with this new color palate. The chair will get a new slip cover. I also have an antique wood armchair that will get reupholstered in a golden tan damask fabric. The "throw" on the back of the chair is one of the tablecloths I bought at an antique shop a few weeks ago.
I thought I was several years too late with being in style with this blue-green color as I was having a hard time finding fabrics in this color. But while looking for paint colors I discovered that this is one of the "in colors" for this fall in several paint lines. Everything comes back around!
