Loving 20th Century Colors of America
Finally the wait is over for an update to my Modern Makeover bedroom redesign, and I'm in love! In love with Stainless Steel paint color that is! Upon opening the can I was a little wary. The paint appeared almost white. I knew it would dry darker than its liquid paint form but I was still extremely nervous. After placing a swatch on the wall, all my doubts vanished. It was perfect for the space! Ironically this cool gray is warm and inviting with hints of purple, my FAVORITE COLOR. As a neutral, it has so much life and depth and is far from boring. And I wasn't the only one who loved it. Everyone I roped into helping me agreed! Now let's take a look at how I acquired this new infatuation!
Reviving 20th Century Paint Colors
Great News! My first ever apartment lease has just begun! Which means, I have a large amount of interior decorating to get started on. It is currently in a sad state, lacking furniture and décor as well as requiring a much needed paint job. My bedroom is especially awful and is in need of a little TLC. By a little, I really mean A LOT. And as a college student with a limited cash flow, I can’t really afford a lot of TLC right now. Solution: I’m hoping with a little creativity, combined with my passion for bargain hunting and some superior interior paint, I’ll create a beautiful space that I can call my own (well at least ‘til next may)!
