It may seem like there hasn't been much going on at the nerdy nest, but we've been prepping for some big changes. Or at least, big to us.
It's been almost a year since we tackled redoing the kitchen and painting our kitchen, livingroom, and hall. After about 5 months of chaos due to our drawn-out kitchen update, the Man decreed a moratorium on home improvement projects. In that time we've just been plugging along with home maintenence and making small tweaks with decor. But I've been patiently waiting to tackle some of our other rooms.
I mentioned brainstorming my office updates, but that's going to be a drawn out project since I'm waiting on the perfect furniture to define the space. However, we have a few other rooms that are desperate for some updates. The previous homeowners had very different tastes when it comes to color choices. They preferred a yellowish beige-y brown. In almost ALL the rooms.
As you can remember from our living room, it takes me a few tries to decide on a color. I want things to flow throughout the house, so I've been trying variations on my favorite color Glidden's Antique Silver (color matched to Behr).
We decided to mix things up for the master bedroom and try a few different colors....
From left to right: Smokey Charcoal, Blue Grey Slate, Antique Silver (darkened 75%), more Blue Grey Slate, Smokey Charcoal (lightened 50%) and Blue Grey Slate (again).
We wanted to go darker in here, and the Man is a big fan of dark, bold colors. We both love blue and after looking at about 300 paint chips, we gravitated towards Glidden's Smokey Charcoal and Blue Grey Slate if you couldn't tell by the swatches above.
