Picking Paint

We are at the point in our bedroom beautification process where I have convinced A. that painting the room would be a good idea and we've taped many swatches on the wall to try and narrow down a colour. I've been tracking down inspiration photos that use paint in my favourite colours and now I'm having a hard time narrowing it down.

Here are the front-runners.

This bedroom from West Elm is painted in Benjamin Moore's Marine Blue.

This fun space uses Benjamin Moore's Newburg Green.

I'm diggin' the drama of Benjamin Moore's Old Navy.

Another one that's captured my eye is Benjamin Moore's Twilight. Admittedly, I've only seen the Benjamin Moore colours online. I still need to go to our local store to pick up some paint chips.

Finally, we have two that have been living on our walls for a week and I'm liking them both.

Observatory by Behr

Admiral Blue by Olympic

We will need to pare it down to two or three colours and then get test pots for the final comparison.

Which one is your favourite?


  1. I love the Marine Blue....

  2. I am currently loving navy blue! Actually, our office reception area is in need of a makeover, and we're thinking of a rich inky blue for the walls and millwork. My vote is for Twilight.
