No, not that sort of shades of Grey… but grey paint. We are almost ready to move onto the fun part of DIY, decorating the boys old bedroom, and transforming it into ours! The loft room is almost finished, just a lick of white paint on the ceiling and then we are good to go.
Operation changing rooms will begin. The boys bunk bed will be split into two single beds, and placed under each of the eaves, providing a cosy den space for each of them to sleep in. The spare room (dump room) has now been cleared and cleaned and will temporarily become our place to sleep whilst we decorate the master bedroom.
My bedroom inspiration board is full of different colours and styles but I keep going back to the cosy calmness of grey. In particular I love the room top right. So calm and restful. I am hoping to keep the space very minimal, just the bed, a chest of drawers, the wardrobe and a plant…. that’s it.
I’ve been looking at paint, and have decided the colours I love are Lamp Room Gray from Farrow and Ball and Grey Moss by Little Greene Paint Co. But I still can’t make up my mind. So, what do you think?
Are doing a big DIY Spring clean this year? I know so many people who are… there is something in the early spring air!
