Hey there! I’m so happy to see you’re back! This week I’m sharing two HUGE selections that give the biggest impact when designing a room!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my polls on Instagram (You can find them in Stories or saved in my Highlights) and if you haven’t checked them out follow me at @creekwoodhill! I’d love to see you over there as well! At the beginning of a project I always seem very in control but by about the 2nd to 3rd week I’m quickly like nope…and with just 5 actual weeks to share our work (shorter if you’re me because I need to account for the photographer) it goes by soooo very, very quickly!
So let’s dive right in shall we?! This week we’re going to talk about the biggest real estate in the room, the walls, and windows! (Floors do too but the floors are staying).
First up the walls! This color is called Anonymous by Sherwin Williams (SW 7046) and it’s sort of a grayish-greenish color with brown undertones that I really don’t care too much for in our bedroom (my husband selected this color when we built the house and I went with it because…well, it was just paint and you can always change paint).
Needless to say, after trying my best to live with it for 1.5 years, I called for a change.
Here are some before pics:
These ceilings are a bit of a design challenge but I roll with it and one day it would be nice to possibly add some built-ins beneath them for extra storage or even bookcases. We’ll see…I don’t know that we’ll have time for that in 4 weeks.
We originally were planning on installing a TV on this wall but…the designer in me vetoed that. And now we need to move these outlets down to the floor.
Lastly, I need to come up with a good solution for my husband because…
Like seriously, what type of charging station is that?! LOL! (Notice the Mrs. Meyer’s? I wonder if he cleans in his sleep)…
Ok, so what am I thinking? Well, if you know me…white of course! But…what type of white…there’s so many! (Take my poll on Instagram!)
And this is when I turned to Hirshfield’s, a Minnesota, family-owned business with years and years of experience and knowledge and an EXTREMELY helpful team! Hirshfield’s carries everything from wall coverings, window treatments and of course paint! Check out their Design Resource Showroom here.
Out of the thousands of paint colors here are the few I pulled.
Currently, I have an interactive poll going on Instagram where I’m turning to YOU! Take the poll or send me a message with your vote and by the end of this week, I’ll share the most selected color by all of you! So stayed tuned! This will be a fun way to let you all be the designer!
Ok. Next, I’m going to take you over to the next biggest impact of the room, the windows. Our bedroom faces west, so it’s pretty dark most of the day (which is another reason I wanted to lighten it up with a white). We have two windows in our room, one is very large about 9 feet wide and the other 36 inches wide, which is nice because it is west facing and we need alllll the light we can get. So when there’s such a large window in the room, I wanted something with a pattern but something not too bold so it wouldn’t be the whole focus of the room. That’s when I turned to none other than Calico Corners! Founded in New York, they specialize in everything fabrics and trim, from upholstery to window treatments, bedding, and wall coverings. With that range of assortment, I knew they would be the perfect partners for my windows!
So what did I choose? This beautiful fabric called Janvier La Mer
I will have these lined, French pleats added and wands installed for easy opening and closing. More details about these beauties soon! (I am sooooo excited to share more about these!) But this is where I leave you for this week.
Thank you so much for stopping by for another week of my master bedroom makeover and I hope to see you again next week for some more details!
And a Special THANK YOU!
