The two newest colors are Valspar's June Morn (bottom of the middle row) and Olympic's Serene Stream (the loner on the left... not the far left... the "middle" left ?). And can I tell you that I love both colors?!
June Morn, the darker of the two, is a good version of the top right color. It's not as murky looking, and it's got a good blue to it (as opposed to the top right, which is very neutral and grayish). And I am quite surprised to say that I'm REAAAALLY leaning towards Serene Stream. I did not think that I would want such a light color, but I think I might be crushing a little....
Maybe it's because it reminds me of my inspiration photo?
I can't really say that THAT'S why I love it (not diggin' the color in that picture), but something is really making me want to paint that wall Serene Stream...
So.. in true Gina fashion.. We get a mock-up of what I'm wanting that wall to look like..
Let's go over a few things...
First, I have some green fabric that i want to recover the chairs in.. It doesn't look puke green, like in my mock-up. But I really want to tie a lot of green into the room, so I'll bring in the green chairs, green accents on throw pillows, and some knick-knacks on the shelf. I think adding the green (and taking the blue from the chairs) will make the blue wall "ok" - and make it so that not EVERYTHING in my main living area is blue.
That lighting fixture is one that I've been leaning towards. It's not "perfect", but it's pretty darned close to what I want (maybe I can find some new shades?). It's from Sea Gull Lighting, and it's about $250. I was hoping to find something for under $200, but I may have to up my budget a tad (I've got a few more choices pinned here).
And these darned pillows! From WAL MART, of all places... I JUST LOVE THEM!!!
I think it was these pillows that made me want to bring green into the room. When I first saw them, I wanted to buy like 10 and put them everywhere. L.O.V.E.
What're your thoughts? Should I just get over the light blue? Maybe pick a different fixture?
Oh, and in regards to yesterday's post... I showed that
