Master bedroom paint color advice needed

Recommended Posts

In my opinion, this one is my fave:

And then I would bring in some orange and dark turquoise in the accessories (lamps, linens, etc.). Some dark brown bamboo would look fab as well!

OH I need to post an update. I was going for the option with blue on the wall & first part of the ceiling & orange on the trey part. I was still really unsure about the orange & planned on painting to closets orange first to get a feel for if it would be too bright.

 

So after doing the blue, I loved how it contrasted with the bright white. Makes me feel like I'm in greece. Not the carribean, but still beach front.

Here is a peak into the orange closet. I did two in the bathroom

We ordered a dark wood bed, white duvet cover & blue sheets. I wanted orange, but I couldn't find orange sheets.

 

I'm thinking about doing dark bamboo roman shades for the windows. If I ever find the right orange curtains or fabric (without it being so expensive) I'll put up orange curtains. I found fabric I like, but it would be about $60 to get enough for the curtains.

 

The bed will not have a headboard. I want to make one eventually. Maybe something like this, but in white. It was once a room divider

Now we just need a beautiful vacation picture to print as a canvas wrap & the room is done. We should have the bed early next week. I can't wait to move in to the new master bedroom.

depopcorning the ceiling took a lot of time, but it wasn't that bad. It made a huge mess though. I probably won't do any other rooms, because we wouldn't be able to shut them off & let them get messy like the master.

I think it feels very Carribean, and will look great with the other room details you've mentioned :)
Thanks! I need to take a better picture later once the bed is in the room. It's hard to see how nice the white looks when I posted a picture where it looks grey.

I want to take a sunset picture while we are in hawaii this summer. I'm hoping for bright orange sky with some blue. I can already tell I'll spend my vacations looking for things to photograph that match the house :o.

We are holding off on painting other rooms until we get things more settled to have an idea of what we want to do. I'm refinishing some furniture & making it bold, so that might be enough color for those rooms. It's so neutral right now. I think some rooms will be decorated once I have the right vacation picture for them. We have a 1/2 bath that I want to make really bold. I'm pretty sure I'll pick the colors for that room based on a vacation picture.

I'm about to go back to working on a dinning table set.
it's this

and I'm doing something like this

(from rooms 2 go)
I am using softer shades of my fiestaware colors.

We got the table off craigslist & it was pretty beat up with crayon marks & dings. The table should be awesome with some work. It's solid wood & really heavy. I have a lot of sanding left. I cant wait to start adding color.


PS. great photographer choice

I love your inspiration pics - I think that dining set is going to look so great when you are done with it! Please post pics :)

 

I actually just gave away a set pretty similar - round table with chairs (oak and white) - good quality but kinda beat up and chipped paint and whatnot. I knew it could be refinished and look great again, but would have never thought of your idea! Now I almost wish I kept it, lol. We are slowly renovating our place too that we bought last year (only an apartment, not a house - real estate is a li'l expensive in Vancouver!) and I just couldn't be bothered with all the sanding etc to fix it up... not to mention I don't really have the space for a project like that at the moment. I hate feeling like I am living in a construction zone all the time!

 

Good luck with all your projects - you are making me feel inspired! I kind of want to go to Home Depot now! My favorite store since becoming a homeowner, lol.

Still not done, but getting there. I want to bring in the orange either with curtains or shams. I'm thinking about also using cobalt blue as an accent. maybe a throw at the foot of the bed.

 

I'm loving the new bed

We are going to put up crownmolding (where you can see the bad paint job). I didn't bother because I knew we'd add molding soon.

 

We bought a miter box (~$5) for cutting at a 45 degree angle for the molding.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
