I’ve posted about this room before and attempted to make it a beautiful space but I haven’t gotten it to look exactly how I want just yet. I’ve also never really planned it out like this before either. I was more so just piecing it together with things I had or cheaper things I could afford at the time. I have some plans now and want you to help me pick a color by Benjamin Moore!
The biggest project we tackled in there was installing a window. That was a huge change for the space. It added a ton of light in there. Before the window it felt like a cave. We also installed faux brick paneling to the window wall. You can check out that DIY if you’re interested in doing that in your own home. I think I’m going to keep that in there for now because it’ll probably be more of a pain to take it off.
I have a lot of the furniture picked out so far. The only thing that will definitely change from these plans is the sofa. I kinda just picked a white loveseat that I liked online. It’s tricky because I need a pretty small sofa for that area in front of the window. Mike’s fish tank also has a little room behind it where he does all of the work for the tank so he has to still get back there through that small door.
So the main thing I’m debating here is paint! I’m either going with Dusty Miller by Benjamin Moore or Oil Cloth by Benjamin Moore. I saw the color Oil Cloth on @mandimakes Instagram account. That space of hers is SO beautiful!
Ok so let’s get to it…..
Option 1: Dusty Miller
Option 2: Oil Cloth
Let me know in the comments what you guys think of the options! So far I’m leaning towards the darker color, Oil Cloth because I think it gives more of a contrast and I kind of want the room to be a little more moody. Let me know.
