This room was the exception. When we walked through before we even put an offer on this house, this room screamed "NAVY" to me! I'm honestly not even sure why? I loved the bead board and how bright the whole space felt. But something about a regal navy against all that white just did something to my soul.
Here is where we started:
I used Behr's Ultra Premium Plus paint in Regatta Bay. I actually went with this color SUPER last minute, because while I knew I wanted navy, I wasn't quite sure which tone I was looking for.
Isn't that CRAZY how colors read differently in different lights? See why I was a little panicked picking from a sample swatch? Every color I LOVED in the space, I HATED in natural light and vise versa.
I was SMITTEN with this towel the second I saw it! I grabbed it months ago and it's been begging for a room to be put in. I would still like to add art of some sort over this towel, but I am a huge believer that if I'm not inspired, then I am not forcing it. So I'll wait for something I love!
Also a side note about the mirror. I thought SURE that before and during this process that I would want to repaint the mirror. However, I actually really like the darkness! Maybe I'm just dark and twisty (Gray's reference). We will most likely swap out the builder faucet for a farmhouse/oil rubbed bronze one eventually.
This little shelf was a thrift store find (originally black) and the fabric/frame I've had for a while (it lived in our old master bath). I didn't redecorate this space at all. Everything came out to paint, and then back in after it dried!
I absolutely love this little shelf that was gifted to us from a friend. It holds extra towels and morning necessities for the kids so I don't have to run up the stairs one hundred times a morning.
It's important to see that I painted the ceiling the same blue as the walls. This is a TOUGH call. Our entire house's ceilings are painted the same color as the walls (even when there is crown moulding). I painted our master ceiling the color of the moulding, but everything else I have left the same. This room doesn't have crown, so honestly to make things easier, I just continued the color on the ceiling. I also did this in Luke's Americana room, Emberly's pink princess room, and their shared lime/navy bathroom. You would *think* that the navy would make it feel smaller. BUT it doesn't add a "cap" to the space so it seems as if the navy extends forever.
I thought stepping back and showing this full space would give a better perspective. The entrance to this bathroom is through a tiny "hall" that has a storage closet. It's a super cute little nook. And after this facelift, I have caught myself just stopping and staring... I just LOVE it!
I'd say 1 can of paint and 1 night's work was totally worth it!
