bedroom accent wall

Painting a wall a dark shade of grey in our bedroom has been a project in the works for a while now…I’ve personally been brewing on it for almost a year. But as I mentioned in a previous post, Brian needs a little coaxing into anything to do with change- something very difficult for an impulsive person like me to understand. If I had my way that wall would have been painted a year ago- actually, probably the very day I had the brilliant idea. It also probably would have looked like crap because impulsive people like me tend to take less time and care painting walls in their home. But because marriage is all about compromise…I introduce to you…our new perfectly painted accent wall!

Originally, I wanted every single wall in our house to be painted a light shade of grey. But luckily (because my husband isn’t impulsive) I’ve had time to think about it (as well as many many many hours to pin various colors on pinterest) and ended up changing my mind. My new plan involves many different shades of grey throughout the house and one moody, dark and sexy accent wall in our bedroom. Considering, I am obsessed with the color grey (I’m guessing that is clear by now?) I knew the accent wall had to  mostly “read” grey but I also wanted it to have hints of blue & green.

After many months of persuading, I was finally able to get Brian to agree to paint the wall. To tell you truth, I think he was just tired of hearing me talk about it.

Last weekend Frank, Brian and I paid a visit to our local paint store in search of the perfect color for our accent wall.

At least Frankie looked excited.

Once we got home with the paint it was decided that Brian would paint the edges and I would paint the center with the roller. He’s better at the details.

After the wall was finished I literally watched paint dry. I was a woman obsessed.

Isn’t it strange how different the color looks in every photo?? It is such an interesting color. It’s grey in one light…blue in another…and sometimes it’s green! I’m pretty darn happy with it and I love the way pops of color look against it.
