It is featuring Essential Teal paint color from Behr's 2015 Paint Color Trends Deep Dreams collection. We have been in our house for two and a half years and have repainted four of the rooms, but I just hadn't been able to decide the look and feel I wanted for our room. As soon as I saw the photo, I new exactly what I wanted to do for our room.
We have a small room with dark furniture, and I was concerned that a dark color may make it feel enclosed. So, I was trying to envision the photo above if you cut it off just after the bed, and decided that it makes for a welcoming and inviting room that is not stuffy at all.
Since I knew cold weather was coming, and we would want to air out the house while painting, the pressure was on. Last weekend was the big paint job and I am really pleased with how it all turned out!
Before - Blah Beige
After - Exotic Essential Teal
I love it! As you can see, we have the textured walls that are a Colorado staple :)
With the dark walls and furniture, I definitely wanted crisp white for the duvet cover. I was just about to order this duvet cover online until I found this set is from Jessica McClintock at
TJ Maxx for only $50 (king or queen).
I also found green sheets at TJ Maxx to "pop" with the teal.
The next challenge was to find a throw that would tie in the teal and green in a pattern I like. I found that Mizone Asha Quilted Reversible Throw to be perfect for this. It is available several places, but I found it for the lowest price at Overstock.
The final touch is this fun purple accent pillow that I just happened upon at Tuesday Morning. Gorgeous!
