I did a crazy thing the other day. I painted my room super blue. Not just regular blue, it is seriously super blue. When I moved in my room was a creamy white. The walls were clean and the paint job was pretty new so I didn’t touch it for the first seven months. In fact, for those seven months I tried to convince myself that I liked white walls. Why you ask? Because white walls are so artsy and cool. See proof: —

— …eh…kind of depressing, right? Somehow my ‘white’ didn’t translate as cool, hip white. It was more like ‘I’m a renter white’ which is silly since I own the home and can do whatever I want. So after months of convincing myself I liked it, I changed my mind and decided to just go crazy. I’m really drawn to super saturated colors. Like these: —

And since one doesn’t want to mess around with shades that extreme, I color matched the exact color she used. It is Loyal Blue by Sherwin Williams and I had it color matched from Behr. It was only slightly scary because, hey, it’s paint so it’s an easy fix if I don’t like it.

What do you think? I really like it! Is it crazy bold? Absolutely. But I lived with “tranquil” white for a while and it just wasn’t me. I’m no photographer so the color reads weirdly in some of these photos but the truest likeness is the photo of my bed. It’s very royal blue. It’s deep and my art and furniture really stand out now. In the future I’ll add some lighter curtains or Roman shades to lighten it up a bit. I also may switch out that black bookcase for something lighter, but for now to darkness doesn’t bother me. In fact, I feel like I’m in a warm cocoon of blue.
