Choosing a wall color

colors

Finally picked up some color samples brochures and pieces from the local paint shop on my way home from the gym today. Have been intending to do so for quite some time and today I remembered when I passed by. It is impossible to choose a color from the internet as it might be something totally different in real life than on screen. So I start with these brochures. Then I will probably have to buy a test color and apply on a smallish area to see it for real. It is the bedroom walls I intend to paint. I want to finally get rid of those green walls in the bedroom that I don’t like.

I like these two blue colors. Particularly that one to the right, the darkest of them. Nothing is decided yet. A bucket of paint for about 20 square-meter walls costs about SEK 500 and up, depending on the color-mix. Or one layer of paint for that area. So probably will need 2 buckets as you usually need to paint two layers. Need to measure the walls next so I know the size of the area.

Which color for the bedroom walls?

bedroom

This is my bedroom. Ever since moved in 4.5 years ago I’ve been wanting to change the color of the walls. They are way too green. I do NOT like green wall-paper…

I do not like green walls. I like greenery in nature, but not green in interior design.

So which color should I choose? All my previous bedrooms have had light blue walls. I don’t want light blue any more, but I am thinking of a darker blue. For a while I was thinking of grey, but, as my living room walls are light grey, and my entrance and work-corner are dark grey, that would be a bit too much of the grey I think. Furniture in the bedroom are either white or oak veneer. Bedspreads either white or medium brown. I think a darker blue would be nice, wouldn’t it?

What I want to do is paint over the green wall paper. I need to go to the paintshop and get some samples. I won’t do the job until it is summer and warm enough for the paint to dry quickly. I am thinking of something like 4th row, 2nd from the right. Or third row and third or second from the right. Opinions?
