I love how a paint colour can totally change the look of a room!!!
We're doing a little painting and redecorating to our home including a few new pieces of furniture, new carpet and new white timber blinds in the bedrooms over the coming months.
While "resting" and having my break I continued with some wall painting in the house.
Room by room I am painting all of the house in Dulux Sandy Day with Dulux Naural White glossy trim which will replace the very yellowy creamy tones the previous owners painted this entire house years ago! And it's a big job so I am pacing myself and doing sections at a time. I hate half finished jobs and the mess that painting brings so I am refusing to move onto the next room until I have finished the first.
And I'm throwing in a feature wall colour here and there.
It's making such a difference already and I've only painted our entry, hallway and Brandt's bedroom.
Annnnyway, I had painted a feature wall in Aqua a while ago in our little entry and I do LOVE the colour (it's repeated as a feature wall in our family room), but it was the wrong colour for the entry.
So I toyed with what colour I would go with and decided I really wanted a charcoal coloured wall. It took me some time to work up the courage to paint it charcoal as it seemed SO dark but after googling images of black walls I knew this was the right colour!!!
I chose Dulux Namadji.
I must admit when the first coat went on I thought what on earth am I doing!! I'm going to wreck the entry!!
BUT I LOVE IT!
I am so, so happy with how it looks. It's better than I imagined and I am now looking around for what other walls I can paint charcoal!! (Taken on my iPhone so not all that clear and a bit "blacker" in real life)
And I especially love my little original Kate Mason work of art now sitting there at the top of my photo collection. I want to add in a few other frames too eventually.
I'll share other rooms and things as they come together too.
