Paint Color Drama



For the longest while, I've been mulling over the perfect paint color for my living room. Out of pure laziness, it's now a plain off-white hue and I've been eager to give the room some more life with a statement-making option. I'm now leaning towards a deep purple, which would certainly complement all the vintage finds and gold accessories I've accumulated over the past few years, but I'm still a little reluctant for some reason.

As a way to find some comfort in my final decision on a paint color, I'm going to take some time to reference a few design magazines. They always open up my mind to new ways of looking at color and figuring out why certain ones work so well together. Of course, my stash of Domino back issues will come into play here.

Then I need to spend a little more time thinking about the vibe I want the living room to give off, considering it's my go-to spot for lounging, working on my computer (like I am now typing this post) and eating dinner. Most importantly, though, I need to consider that my living room barely gets any natural light (hate this so much) and it's not a huge space so this all makes my decision that much more difficult. Wish me luck!

I would love to do a purple room in my house maybe the guest room. I also love the black/grey walls at West Elm that I want a room to look like.

@Tee I like the idea of purple. The difficult thing is just finding the right shade. It definitely takes some work. Thanks for stopping by. - Monique
