I remember doing this post about dark walls and swooning over how moody yet glamorous they were all at the same time. I knew I had to change up my bright coral wall as I was quickly growing old of it and also felt it was a little too young. I loved it when I first did it, but I was ready for a change. I instantly discovered navy bedroom walls and fell in love. Something about constantly changing my surroundings is quickly becoming a habit of mine. I feel like my home is ALWAYS under construction. To be honest, it currently is (soon to reveal)! The bedroom is finally finished and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I swear (and hold me to it) that once the kitchen is done (okay office is beginning to change lately) I am done for at least two years.
For the bedroom overhaul I partnered with Homepolish to help me pull this concept off with ease. We started with an in home consult with Sandie who’s based here in Atlanta to go over my vision and so that she can see my entire home and space. I knew I wanted to do navy as to me, it feels like a neutral and can go with so many colors. Plus doing a dark wall was something I was just dying to try. Good news is Sandie loves a good dark wall too, her bedroom has a black wall which I’m obsessed with so I was glad we were on the same page! After we chatted and she checked out my inspiration pins and home, she came back for a follow up appointment. She brought paint swatches and fabric samples for me to look over which was great.
After deciding on this perfect navy, Valspar Royal Navy, it was off to shop for duvets. This was actually a lot more difficult than I expected. I always knew shopping for bedding was not an easy task as it never is. Who knew finding a grey set would be so difficult? I ended up with a grey and white chevron printed duvet with a diamond sheet set to mix some pattern into it. I originally wanted to add blush and pinks to the room so that it complimented my living room colors. However, after Sandie brought over these mustard yellow pillows, I was sold. I absolutely loved how it pulled the room together and also added a touch of boho to the whole look. A few brass accents like these pretty lamps and H&M accessories completed the entire look.
I hope this dark wall trend is here to stay because I have to say, I’m so in love with how it turned out. I wish I had more rooms in my home because a charcoal wall would totally be next. I’ve painted this room now three times and this is hands down the best it’s ever looked. It feels grown up, moody and a little romantic if you ask me. Huge thanks to Homepolish for helping me pull off the dark wall trend and transforming my space.
