Casual Blue and White Master Bedroom Decorating Plan
I wanted to pop in today with a quick blog post before my house loses power due to Hurricane Florence. I don’t live on the coast, but inland where we will get lots of rain and wind. We lose power during a normal rainy day, so I am pretty certain it will happen with the rain and winds predicted for the area of South Carolina where I live. I won’t be able to get online, which will put a damper on getting any posts completed. I am hoping it will only be for hours and not days as I am working on a fall home tour post for Monday that I haven’t even begun to write.
After I mentioned last week how I plan to update the decor in my bedroom with new flooring, paint and a few other changes, a few of you wrote to me asking me to please share the accent wall color and wallpaper I was considering.
At the time, the wallpaper swatches I ordered had not arrived yet. They came yesterday, so I hung them up for you to see.
I am not sure about any of them and am still searching for something that will add some color, but still keep the casual vibe. I really like white walls and feel good in rooms with all white, but I always like to consider other ideas before making a final choice.
I like the top swatch the best. It may be a little too beige, especially when I have the lights on in the room. I think I want to use something that is more white-white based.
In this photo taken from my kitchen, you can see into the bedroom and how having some color or pattern on the wall will make this view more interesting, too.
The middle wallpaper swatch is too turquoise and the bottom swatch is a piece of card stock painted with Liberty Blue Fusion Mineral Paint. I love the color, but don’t think I want it on the wall, maybe I will paint the headboard with it.
Here is a better look at the light blue grasscloth wallpaper. Every computer monitor will read the color differently, but overall it has a mix of light blue shades of color.
Once we get the flooring, I will lay a few planks down to see how the colors are affected and then make a decision. It is supposed to arrive on Friday, but Hurricane Florence most likely will delay that arrival.
I had some fun in Photoshop to create this collage of a few of the elements I will be adding to the room.
I will be happy once the hurricane moves past so we can get the floor installed and the room back together again.
Hope to see you on Monday with my Fall Home tour post. :-)
Baskets – Love these, but they are pricey. I plan to find budget-friendly versions at HomeGoods
