{itching to paint some walls ...}

Happy Friday everyone! Boy the days of December are just flying by aren't they? Well, I've got a gift card for 1 can of paint that I received a while back, and it expires in a matter of days!!! I'm itching to paint something and I'm kinda having a hard time deciding what. This office/den below has been a room that has been circling in my mind for at least a month:


I just LOVE everything about it,the rug, the shelves with wood inserts, those directors chairs, and I especially LOVE those inky blue walls. Could my home office sport this look? I'm tempted to try. I was excited to come across a couple of other angles of this room:


Makes my heart flutter. Another office space with a similar feel:


That sort of jewel-tone teal/peacock blue is to die for! What do you guys think, should I try it?

Yes! The blue is gorgeous!

I love these inky blue walls. They are dramatic and moody and perfect for an office. I think it would be wonderful with neutral accessories to keep it cozy in the winter, and then brighter ones in the summer to lighten things up

Of course you should try it! Even if you hate it you can change your mind. I recently painted my office and I love it.

Absolutely! This palette of teal/orange with accents in B&W is super glam. I wonder how it will look with Pantone's new it color Tangerine Orange. Bet you'll come up with something super fab! Lovely Weekend Nancy! XoXo Maca

I love these inky blue walls and have been wanting to do this in my dining room with some white wainscotting on the bottom. So I say go for it! Happy Weekend!

Go for it! Especially seeing as you have a gift card for a can of paint :-) Life's too short not to do the things you love.

The combination of navy and orange is a new trend we are seeing a lot lately. It is great to see more adventurous choices being made in colour

Wendi @ Classic Chic Home said...

If you've been thinking about that office for over a month, you obviously love the color. Just go for it, girl! It's only paint!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Go for it, I think a little adventure keeps things interesting. Like Wendy said- you can always paint....
