This post is as much about the power of paint as it is about anything else. I know you know this but, simply painting the walls can change the entire feel of a space and this bedroom refresh is total proof of that. I’ve been super antsy to paint our master bedroom for awhile. I didn’t dislike the previous color, I just wanted something moodier for our master bedroom.
After seeing some blue walls around the web, I decided to go for it. One thing about me, I’m slightly impulsive which can be to my determent. Once I have an idea, it seems impossible to get it out of my head. That’s what happened with this room.

I searched high and low for paint colors and narrowed it down to a few I wanted to sample then ran to Home Depot and had samples mixed of these five colors. I decided on Ben Moore Cloudy Sky after swatching them on the wall and observing them for a few days. I honestly was terrified to paint the walls such a bold color since I’ve really stayed very neutral with paint colors in this house but I’m so pleased with the way it turned out.

Not a lot changed in this space other than removing the grid and then painting the walls.
I added this new bench at the foot of the bed. I love the spool legs, don’t you?
I also mixed some new artwork in with the old.
One thing that had always stumped me about this room was adding art above the headboard. The ceilings are so tall in this room and nothing ever seemed to fit – once I added some height above both nightstands – I felt much better about leaving the space above the headboard bare.
I also ended up removing the drapes from the window because they were just too heavy for the space. I’d love to replace them with some lighter white or maybe striped drapes in the future but for now, I really don’t mind the bright light that pours in.
A couple weeks ago I snagged an original painting from Brynn Casey Art and I promptly hung it in here. I think it completes the calm, beachy vibes in this room that I love so much.
I can’t even believe how different this space looks and feels by changing details.
