After the Thanksgiving holiday has now passed, I have a bit of time before Christmas to get back to work and get things rolling. I've got a bedroom makeover I am working on and I've been in need of some good color inspiration. In Texas, things are not always as glamorous as they are in say NY or LA so I've found that theres a softer mood in many spaces. High gloss walls wont really cut it right now, what I need is to add some muted tones together with some glamorous elements [like metallics] to create the perfect laid back 'Ashlina in Austin glam' vibe. I was at Lowes the other day skimming through colors and I think for this particular project I'm going with the shade Newport Grey from Valspar. It's not really grey, but will give the same soft muted feel of these romantic muted color rooms. Inspiring, no?
