I had a busy weekend painting Mya’s new bedroom and the results are awesome! She wanted purple walls again but something lighter than her existing bedroom (Pittsburgh Paints ‘Purple Dusk’ ATC-74) so I took her into the paint store and she selected Benjamin Moore’s Inspired (AF-595) from the Affinity Collection.
Here’s a shot of her existing bedroom
We are keeping the bed and her custom slipcovered headboard that we made (she picked the blue floral fabric of course!). We are also re-using her roman shade since it fits the window in her new bedroom and she still loves the bird fabric.
Mya decided on a zig-zag/chevron pattern for the largest wall in her new bedroom so I sketched out some designs on the computer to scale and she picked her favourite. I painted 3 walls in the ‘Inspired’ purple colour and the large accent wall in white so it would be ready for our new chevron pattern.
I spent at least an hour measuring, leveling and marking all of the points on the grid to make the pattern. It took a long time but it was definitely worth it! Here is the wall taped and ready for paint.
Here’s what it looked like after one coat of the purple, I love the contrast between the white and purple, it’s graphic yet not too overwhelming. I had considered using a light gray but I’m convinced white was definitely the right choice.Here’s the finished wall after I applied the second coat of paint. We are thrilled with the results and Mya can’t wait to move into her new room!
