Paint Colors for the Bedroom

We built our home in 2013 so it has been 4 years and we still have not painted our master bedroom nor the bathroom. We have been going back and forth about colors but I am hopeful that this year will be the year.

I am torn between 2 colors, gray and lilac. We also need to paint our daughter's bedroom and she has chosen light blue. Until she saw my selection of lilac..... great.....

This inspiration....

Love this....

Now here is our bedroom. Our bed is a cream color wing back bed. I think it up against the lilac will be perfect.

Love all the inspiration that Pinterest provides. I am just so excited that my husband will let me have lilac in our room. I am looking forward to it.

Now on this chart I am leaning toward "radiant lilac". These are Sherwin Williams paints and my husband loves their products. 

My daughter has been wanting her room painted "light blue" until she saw my lilac paint color choices. I told her that she can paint her room the same color and she has refused. So the deal is if we go with a different color then she will go with the radiant lilac. Problem solved.....

Here were her paint color choices....

She likes the top color "lobelia" and here are other examples....

I love this "silken blue" but she hates it! It's okay. I am hoping that we will finally have color on the walls and that the last 3 rooms in the house will finally be finished. I also have to pick out a "stain" color for our fence. Looking forward to that too!

  1. Such a beautiful color you have chosen for the master bedroom. I think its going to look beautiful with your bed and decor. One of my daughters has a very similar paint color and I absolutely love walking into her room. I would love to paint or wallpaper my bedroom. Well, lets just say paint because wallpaper is very expensive. Your daughter has picked some very pretty colors. I can't wait to see pics of the painted spaces. You now got me thinking, my fence is looking somewhat dull. I think I'll be adding to my honey do list.

    1. Thank you! I am a little nervous about the color but we will see. I am looking forward to having the fence stained. I have been waiting for a year!
