Guess what I did Wednesday night?
Yep, I painted the blank wall in our loft navy blue! The dark wall makes the open room feel so cozy and I LOVVVEEE it! So much so that I find myself taking random trips upstairs just to stare at the wall haha
After I got off work, I stopped at Lowe's to pick up a gallon of Valspar's Indigo Streamer (in satin) AKA my go-to blue. I've used it before on my console table makeover:
As well as my vintage campaign dresser makeover:
And ever since then, it's become my favorite navy. I painted a sample of it on the wall before I committed to it just to be sure it was "the one":
But I secretly knew it was the blue I was going to use all along :)
Now that the wall is painted, we can address other things in the room like the lack of drapes:
The ugly boob lighting:
And whether or not I should add a rug:
One of those things has already been taken care of though. Stop by tomorrow to find out what it is!
In the meantime, what do you think of the navy wall?
By the way, as I was taking these photos, I realized that I forgot to show you the right side of the room last week (don't mind the floor mirror, it's not staying there):
I had a couple of people tell me that I should rearrange the furniture but I can't. See that half wall above? If I put any piece of furniture in front of it, my mischievous little Cairn Terrier will climb on it, find her way up to the walls ledge and fall down to the foyer's tile floor below. The thought of her dying is one I can't deal with so the furniture is staying put!
