Here's the latest update. On Friday I painted a feature wall. I used Valspar "Steel" paint with an eggshell finish. Total cost of the project was about fifty for paint, rollers, painters tape etc. It's a low budget, high impact project that doesn't take a lot of time to complete.
I like the dark color because it not only anchors the room, but also highlights the lines of the headboard. The upholstered headboard was a total steel! I'm not willing to truly invest in a bed yet, so this choice from Wayfair was a perfect fit. It's the Skyline High Arch Headboard in Parchment. I love the lines, height, and nailhead detail. It retails for $279.99 and you can find it here.
Before the feature wall my vintage chandelier blended in with the decor. Now, set against they dark wall, it really pops. I'm still in the process of switching out bedding. I love the idea of yellow which will complement the grey, but I'm also drawn to this vintage plums fabric.
Decorating takes such patience!
