I walked in and picked up a can of white right off the shelf
and quickly covered the walls with it before the guests arrived?
So when I had the opportunity to take that somewhat chilly feeling room and turn it into a warm and welcoming space with Sherwin-Williams
I jumped on the chance to do a makeover.
It truly felt so much like a cave.
and after the quick make-do paint job
it was so much better with a coat of white (and new windows),
but not all that warm and welcoming yet.
we haven’t had guests that have stayed inside the house in the extra room that often.
But as it turns out my oldest son and his girlfriend were planning on moving back home and staying in this room for a month or two (my middle guy is currently in the guest cottage so no space there).
My oldest was in between places while moving to the beach and getting settled there
and yes, I am totally jealous in case you are wondering. 😉
One of my favorite ways to change the feeling of a room or space is by using paint.
It’s a super easy way to lighten, brighten, darken, bring some color in or create a neutral backdrop.
Plus, its not a huge commitment – if you aren’t happy in a few years with the color
you don’t have to peel wallpaper – you simply paint over it.
We tried a couple colors in the Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer,
We tried several options. A yellow, a soft gray, a taupe
and pink but ultimately decided on…
On my walls, with the lighting we have and an abundance of windows and sunshine in this room-
but overall- very soft and quiet.
You can also see the different tones and shades based on the amount of light and time of day.
