Paint Choices

The master bedroom is starting to come together.  Nicole and I painted until 1 a.m. the other night, she trimmed in the paint and I rolled.  I'm pretty lucky to have such a nice sister that will help me paint.
My husband took most of my sons camping and we took advantage of guilt free project time. :)
 We started with the ceiling, painting it Sandy Brown by Benjamin Moore.
Benjamin Moore- Sandy Brown

Autumn gave me two choices for the wall color.
  Wythe Blue or Salisbury Green.
  I went ahead with Wythe Blue after showing (or torturing) everyone that came to visit my house with the paint colors.  Wythe Blue was the winning choice.

Autumn pulled all of the paint colors out of the bedskirt fabric. 
The entire room is based around this fabric. 

Here's a before shot of my builder beige bedroom.

Here it is finished with Wythe Blue and Sandy Brown. What do you think?

It's a dramatic change for me, I think every room in my home is either light beige or dark beige. 
I am so excited to see this room come together!
We are finishing up the bedskirt, the side tables, and moving on to the headboard.
Notice I included "we" .....my sister is way too nice!

What do you do when you have time to yourself?

Pedicure? Shopping?
or
is it guilt free project time!?

Oh my goodness! That paint is so beautiful. Do you ever use paints for scrapbooking and crafts? Do you like to use Ranger Ink from Tim Holtz? Sorry I'm asking so many questions, but do you know if the Benjamin Moore paint store MA sells Ranger?
