It's painted a similar color to my own room. The previous owner of our house painted my bedroom navy blue - the photo below is from the realtor's website:
the Benjamin Moore photo.
I don't want to copy it exactly. In fact, I hate having my bed under a window, and I wouldn't have room for big nightstands on either side. You can see in my "before" house tour from last January that I've picked a new spot for the bed:
I haven't done much of anything with my room except for hanging sheer white curtains on the windows, much like the Benjamin Moore example.
My room could definitely use a few punches of color. I'm really intrigued by the painted ceiling in the example photo - that's something I never thought to do. I think adding white trim would be necessary in that case.
Ultimately, my room will be the last room I finish in my house. I've never been interested in decorating with blue (although I've toyed with the idea), but it is quite a calming color, and easy to work with. My blue is a bit brighter and bolder than Benjamin Moore's "evening dove" - but I think I can work a similar look with it.
What do you think of this blue color I have been given in this room? Would you keep it, or say good bye? If you were to add a pop of color, what would you add? Do you like what Benjamin Moore has done?
