i dream of making pretty things. i usually fail.
I’m so excited for my upcoming room makeover!
My bedroom is a small space and is currently painted dark green. It’s similar to this colour:
While I love the colour, I’m getting a little bored of it. And it’s a little too dark to wake up to every day. So I’ve decided to go in an entirely different direction… bright pink.
I envision a colour similar to this:
Here’s how I see it, right now I’m at a place in my life where I don’t live with a guy who would absolutely hate to see this every day. Nor do I have a guy in my life to complain about visiting a pink bedroom. I also like how the pink and white work together.
This is probably the only time in my life when I could get away with such a bright and girly paint colour on my walls. And I think that being surrounded by something so bright could possibly make me energized and happy.
The problem is, everyone I talk to about the colour choice seems a little wary and don’t want to tell me it’s bad, but the look on their face says it’s bad.
I’m also considering a deep purple colour (but then I go back to a deep colour like the green and that would still make the room feel too dark) or a shade of blue, either bright or dusty.
So let me put it out there… am I making a mistake painting this bright pink colour? Or should I stop listening to everyone else and just do it? Any other suggestions?
