Go Bold! It’s a good thing we take “before” pictures. I often forget the changes Colby, and I have made in our home until I stumble across a “before” picture. Wow! It’s been a lot of hard work making this house our own, but I have loved the final product.
Here’s the before to my piano room. At first, it was a catch-all for items we didn’t know where to use when we moved in. Tan isn’t my color, so my first step was to paint. The previous owner used this as an office/bedroom with black, red and white accents. Most of my home is a light, neutral feel but I do have a bold side too, and this room would reflect that.
The color I chose for the walls is Moody Blue by Sherwin Williams. It is less blue in person than it appears in the pictures. The actual color has a touch of green to it. This color was in my family room at my last house. I found this color by walking into Sherwin Williams and instantly seeing this color painted on their display wall and falling in love with it. It was beautiful in my last house, and so I wanted to use it in my new home. I used the same oil paintings with it as my old house but added some gold chairs to complement the frames.
The walls, paintings, and chairs needed to do most of the talking in this room, so my accents are a subtle green. I made pillows and curtains using a green hue found in the paintings. Each color is used throughout the room to create balance to the eye. I have a black corner cabinet that I use to display colorful books and bold items to compliment the blue and gold.
I love decorating with bold colors! They bring energy into a room and can be very inviting. I needed this space to say more than the original tan, black, red and white were allowing it to mean. It needs to be a room that I can enjoy listening to my daughter play the piano in and a place that speaks to my fun side.
