Smooth Sailing

I had a killer workout this morning.  Lots of squats and overhead presses.

And now our bedroom is blue!

When we bought our house last September the house was freshly renovated and although the entire house was a boring white we couldn’t bare to cover up the clean walls.  After a year with us the house has a few scratches and smears and we’ve begun adding a little color.

Painting wasn’t so bad; 3 hours, a few bad t.v shows, and some seriously sore shoulders later I am pleased with the outcome.

We’ll be sleeping downstairs in the guestroom tonight and the bedroom will have all weekend to air out because we’re going to West Virginia for a wedding (the last of the season as far as we know!).  The color is called “Smooth Sailing” and I think it’s going to be very calming and perfect for sleep.

I’ve never felt like I am very good with color (my wardrobe is black, gray, red, and blue) but I love the difference it makes in a room!

As far as the sore shoulders, I’m off the find my chiropractor 😉 and then head to a yoga class.

What’s your favorite color for walls?  We are looking for something for the living room!


  1. Gee I can never choose colours when it comes to painting walls. All the selection they have at the hardware stores make me dizzy and very confused. Egg shell blue or sky blue or sea foam blue? See what I mean? Haha

    But I digress. You’ve done a great job there, and I’m a big fan of blue for bedrooms (if you couldn’t tell from up there :P)

    LOVE that color! So pretty! Can we see a picture of the whole bedroom? How’s the house coming along? Do you feel moved in totally and that the space is yours? SAGE Burning to bring in the blessings! 🙂

      The rest of the room is still kind of a disaster…as for the rest of the house, I think you’ll have to come and see for yourself! 🙂

  3. I really wanted a COLOR when I painted our living room, but I ended up letting the furniture provide the color, while the walls are neutral. Most are khaki, with one accent wall in the living room in tobacco. With a huge red-brick fireplace, dark-red leather couch/chair, a black wooden coffee table and black marble end tables, it all ended up looking pretty good. At least I haven’t wanted to change it in two years!
