Soft Grey

 Morning! Love having random long weekends like this past one :) Something so nice about sleeping in on a Monday.

One of things that happened during my little blog absence was some painting! Specifically, my room - which I've talked about painting a light grey for almost three years now. ( I went and checked - here's one of my posts from 2011) Finding the right grey is hard y'all haha

I bought a test pot in a colour I was almost 100% sure of, but it looked way too dark when I got it on the walls. (It was very similar to Cornforth White by Farrow & Ball) So I went up to the very top row of my paint deck and chose Special Edition by Para Paints. It went on looking very white, but dried to this subtle soft grey that I am in love with. It changes a little depending on the light, sometimes looking more greige, sometimes more lilac, but it's beautiful.

New walls call for new art right? Painted the verse above just after finishing my room - the gold is gorgeous against the grey!

And my ever-expanding art wall is below. This is just a small segment of it :) Yes, there is a sideways print there until I find something else. The watercolour in the middle is from this Etsy shop, and most of the other prints are by Leigh Viner. The tiny canvases are from a project years ago, and the giant canvas above my bed (two photos up!) was painted by me as well.

Just for fun, some shots of my new desk! The new year has been full of changes already :) I used to work from the dining room table, so this is a very welcome change.

The disco ball is fantastic when the sun comes out :) And when I have some, my little jar is full of Wint-o-green candies.

Feels so good to finally accomplish something I've been planning for quite a while. Now to just put all the final touches together and share the final tour!! You can find some of my old plans & thoughts for this room under the 'bedroom' tag. Funny to see how my plans have evolved :)

Hope your week is off to a lovely start!
