Finding your perfect blue may be harder than you think.
Take this room for example.
I loved it!
I thought it was the perfect blue for me.
I even went as far as asking the builder for the exact color code.
It's Benjamin Moore's Grey Wisp in case you're wondering :)
Can't you just feel the soothing colors relax your senses?
I just knew I had found my inspiration here.
Grey Wisp for me please.
.......At least that's what I thought.
It looks blue...right?
We all know how color changes when placed in different surroundings.
Lighting play's a huge part in this catogory but I just knew I had it right this time!
I could not wait to get home and Google Benjamin's paint locations.
I found one semi-close and hoped I would not run into anyone I knew.
(It's no secret around here I'm called the crazy paint lady)
Long story short...
Not the color for me.
It had way to much green for me.
I did,however find the perfect color.
Just the right amount of blue without feeling the need for a swimsuit.
The words out on the street now.
Susie Harris has painted her bedroom...once again! Ha!
So what's my perfect blue?
(more on that to come)
A happy ending!
Did you love that bedroom?
Here is the back patio the leads off the bedroom .
I knew you would love it :)
The courtyard includes this awesome fountain too!
So what have I learned?
The paint is not alway's greener on the neighbor's wall....ha!
Corny I know..but in this case it was.
Take your time.
Pick up every color swatch you can get away with.
Buy samples and paint them on white poster board.
This way you wont have ten colors on your wall and you can move your poster boards around the room.
