Guess what we did this weekend?
That’s right. Turned our (well, my) pink office into a blue nursery (trust me, we’re not really that gender-biased, the blue just happened to match the bedding I designed!).
I agonized over the color and took my fabric swatches everywhere with me for the last few weeks, comparing paint chip after paint chip. Finally ended up with my very first pick (as usual!), which was Benjamin Moore’s Misty Blue. It’s part of Pottery Barn’s Benjamin Moore line. It’s the perfect blue — not too bright, not too dull, not too pastel or too bold. It looks A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I can’t stop drooling. Normally Benjamin and I are diehard Home Depot shoppers, and have used Behr paint in every other room we’ve painted (which is every room in our house), but since I’m busy growing a little baby who probably doesn’t want to breathe in VOC’s and other harmful chemicals, we bit the bullet and went for Benjamin Moore’s Natura paint (zero VOC’s). It’s expensive, but well worth it, since it went on thick and even, and I was able to help paint!
And the best part? With a little teamwork, we did it in one day (yay!), which left us a day to do something else that I’ve been anxiously waiting to do… OUR MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOT! More to come on that tomorrow.
