Welcome to paint week! Since planning to do this makeover earlier in the summer, I knew that I wanted some shade of green. Hunter/evergreen was one of my top choices but I kept getting pulled back to my favorite color, teal. Let me tell you, I love all shades of teal. Especially including the light bright shade that I painted my entire room (ceiling included) when I was 16. However, I knew that I wanted this color to be featured in a much more minimal accent as well as in a more mature shade. This started my months long search for the perfect shade. I stared at endless paint chips:


And pinned tons of beautiful rooms.

In the end, I just walked into lowes and talked to the friendly Behr paint guy and picked this shade.


The back wall is painted and I’m in love! Buuutt I still have to repaint the other three walls a fresh white. Come back next week to see the finished walls and talk all about textiles.
