Yep, it's finally here, my purple bedroom paint makeover. I mentioned last week that I was going to show you pictures of my new bedroom look, now that its national painting week I am sharing the story. When Sherwin Williams reached out to me about joining NPW and assigned me the color purple, I jumped at the opportunity. For me, purple is a gorgeous color, but I never decorate with it. I'm not really sure why, its just usually a last accent color but nothing I've ever really wanted to work with. At first I considered painting a piece from an antique store but then I thought, I really need to shake up my all white bedroom and make it more of a cocoon for blissfully deep sleeping. Game on!
I ended up going with the Emerald line of paint, in the color called "soulmate" and I absolutely love it. It's so soft and muted, reminds me of a color you would see in Paris. It completely softens the more modern furnishings I have in my bedroom.
I think most of you know how much I was feeling the all white thing this winter, but painting my room purple was everything I needed and more. Now my teeny little manhattan bedroom is such a cozy little jewel box.
My most favorite area is my vanity. I absolutely love getting ready here and something about the purple sort of makes it feel more luxurious, especially with my little pink velvet vanity seat.
I really love the color at night too. It's such a dream to sleep with. Who would have thought I would love my purple bedroom so much? I'm not finished with the entire room, I need more art on the walls , a few more choice accessories and I think I am considering a new bedding look, too. For now, I am thrilled with it.
Purple can be interesting to accent, so I went for white, black and gold...Here are a few of my favorite pieces...
