Happy to finally have a new bed I though what a shame it was I didn't have a chance to paint the room before the bed was delivered as it would have been so much easier. But I still hadn't decided on a color. I think everyone is aware that I have been obsessed with blues for quite a while but as I already painted the living room blue I felt I should have some variety and have been trying to convince myself of pink or peach for the bedroom. Perhaps due in part to some earlier unfortunate choices in shades of pink I haven't been able to decide on a shade for months and have still been obsessing about blues all the while. There's just nothing like a rich water or sky image to drive me crazy and I want to be enveloped in it, as if I were in this photo.
So I finally gave in and chose a blue called Mermaid's Treasure (or something like that) and came home and immediately painted a corner of the first wall to see how it would look. The following images are others I used for comparison to the paint chips including a couple of actual interiors using a very similar blue.
