This was me, I loved the idea of the greenery of my plants up against a beautiful wall and something with a little touch of femininity. I have a lot of natural elements in my home, raw woods, natural fiber rugs, stone, neutral tones with pops of color, I had this gorgeous space all imagined for the upstairs loft space and I felt the urge to bring it to light!
I had this amazing Himalayan salt candle holder and super cute water bottle that I just fell in love with, the colors were inspiring me to add a little color to my upstairs loft. I definitely had an idea of what I wanted but I wasn’t sure how to go about finding a good mix of these colors that had me so inspired.
I headed down to my local Dunn-Edwards for a free color consultation, You can look into a FREE color consultation at your local Dunn-Edwards Here. I brought along my candle holder and water bottle so they could help me find the perfect color. I was greeted by my local color consultant and instantly felt at ease with my project. She sat down with me and I showed her images of my room decor and explained what I had imagined and desired for my project.
After she heard me out and asked me questions, she brought out her colors and did an excellent job narrowing down my options! I loved the colors she showed me and we discussed the differences on each and how each would look in my space. Being that this was an accent wall I had to take into consideration how this would look with the other color on the remaining walls. When I finally narrowed down my search for that perfect color and finish it was simple to order supplies and receive the advice I needed on my DIY.
I left with confidence in my color choice but was advised to take home a sample and see how I liked it in the lighting of the room and against my other walls. Once I got home I quickly pinned the sample to the wall and gave it 24hrs of walking back and forth and checking it out placing it near my plants and decor items, I loved it even more! I was ready to make the leap!
I ran back to Dunn-Edwards for my paint and supplies and was so excited to get started!
It can be a little overwhelming knowing you have to be well prepared and ready for a DIY paint job and I wanted to create a helpful video of a couple steps to take before you paint those walls!
Painting with Dunn-Edwards Everest Ultra-Premium was a breeze, I only needed one coat thanks to the self-priming the Everest offers and that made this project simple! I didn’t have to worry about those yucky odors lingering in our house, The paint went on smooth and dry within 20 minutes. I was able to tear off the tape and stand back in awe at how beautiful this color was in this space. I loved the serene vibe it projected in the room.
As you can imagine in a house full of boys, this blush nude pink wall was a fresh of breath air for me. This was such a creative experience for me, I really enjoyed meeting with a color consultant at Dunn-Edwards and bringing what I only imagined to life!
