I have a horrible time picking out paint. It usually takes me several samples before I find just the right color.
But this time has been even more difficult and what at first appeared easy turned into a quest. This is even sillier because the powder room I am painting is so tiny, when I picked out the wallpaper I thought finding the trim color for the cabinets would be a cinch.
One door of the powder room lets out to the media/library, the toile fabric I used for the drapes is the inspiration for the color scheme. The room is painted a dark creme color that matches the background of the fabric. The other door in the powder room leads to the the guest bedroom, my next project after I finish the powder room. I have already picked out the fabric for the drapes...which is the floral you see below. I know it might seem odd but the stripped wallpaper I am using in the powder room unifies the spaces. I have been trying to find the lighter color in the paper to paint the woodwork. Seems easy enough but everything appeared to yellow in the powder room light; light is tricky business.
Well, persistence pays off and I finally found my color: Behr Informal Ivory. Vast relief! Now I can paint.
In honor of this I thought I would share my OOTD, straight from the haute couture designer: La Poubelle...doesn't trash can sound better in french. A very old, very baggy, pair of sweats that I keep just for painting in, as you can see I am a very messy painter...Miss Twiggley beware, you might end up with some added highlights.
I hope to share the results soon, but I still have to wallpaper, and gold leaf the ceiling.
Have a happy day! And, thank you for visiting.
