So, I told myself I wasn't going to reveal any peeks of my new place until everything was picture perfect. I gots ta thinkin' and realized that's so against my semi-designed mantra. Since I (and hopefully you too!) am on a constant quest to define my style, I felt like it was my duty to share the design progression that will be my new home.
This weekend I spent my entire Saturday painting my bedroom. The room is quite large, has an exterior door and a 10 foot long window. A few things I've been missing in my past living quarters. The one thing it did have in common with apartment dwelling is the beige wall color. While perfectly lovely and fine, I was ready for some drama.
Most of my furnishings are white and were begging for some contrast. So of course, I immediately thought charcoal. Delicious, fire starting charcoal. And a little inspiration...

I decided on the color "Pier" by Behr.

And this is how things are lookin'...

And there's your peek! What do you think? It's photographing kind of green but I promise it's a pretty pure grey. I'm loving it, and Watson seems to be pretty pleased with the change.
