I am finally going to get started on my office project. I have been putting it off for months!
Sometimes these projects seem so overwhelming that it’s hard to even think about where to begin! I think that is a main reason why people (myself included!) put off starting them! Where do you first start?
I will tell you what has been holding me back from starting, I can not choose a paint color for myself! Like many of you, when it comes to selecting paint colors for myself I am just confused because there are too many colors to choose from!
So I decided to take a step back and approach it from another way. Before I choose a paint color, what do I actually need for an office? A room:
And I have a desk I want to use:
Ok, it needs to be painted but look at how great the size is! It can look like this:
I want bookcases built on both sides of the windows with a window seat in between:
I also want to add a lot of color with artwork, bulletin boards and storage:
I have a library card storage cube like the one below that I want to use in the room:
I also would love a great chair where I can read:
Going back to paint colors, I know that I want to use a soft blue that will soften the walls but will also work with the “bolder” colors I love. The pictures above of the soft blue-green painted rooms are my favorite. A few perfect blues that would fit this description are Palladian Blue HC-144 or maybe Wyeth Blue HC-143. Or how about the beautiful Glass Slipper 1632 blue? Another soft blue I have wanted to try is Constellation AF-540.
Ben Moore Constellation AF-540
I am going to try two paint samples in the room. I really love the Constellation color and I also want to try Sheer Bliss CSP-545. It is a beautiful light blue with a little lavender in it. So pretty! I will let you know which color I choose after I test them at home.
Anyone else working on a home office? What colors have you used recently in your home that you just love? Any colors you have used that you wish you did not??
