spunky? sophisticated? sassy?

Need your vote!!

There are two more painting projects I want to tackle... one being the guest bathroom. Right now it is hospital sterile white! There is a nice built in bookshelf behind the toilet that I thought I would paint for an accent..something to tie in the guest bedroom bedding set. But since no one really sees that bathroom, I want to focus my energy and $$ to my 3rd bedroom/walk-through room. 

This room is between the kitchen and hallway to the other bedrooms. It also has the sliding glass doors out to the screened porch. I want this room to be an "escape." It needs to be multi-functional.. office, yoga, mediation, as well as pet friendly for Snyder... 

There is one wall with no doors or windows on it.. a perfect wall for an accent wall! I am going to paint the other 3 walls the Sherwin-Williams Kilim beige that is also in the guest room, hallway and kitchen. But the 4th wall I want to stand out! I saw a really neat painting technique where you stencil in a design using the same paint color as the wall, but in a high gloss.... so here are some paint colors I picked out.. which one do you like? I need your vote!!

Color 1- Behr Ultra "Strike a pose." Here is where I got the inspiration 

Color 2- Behr Ultra "Drum Solo." There is where I got this idea

Color 3- Behr Ultra "Blood Rose". Same inspiration as "Strike a pose"


  1. 1) I love the frames over the commode
    2) I'm gonna say Blood Rose...I'm just dying to know what the final product will look like! ;)

    So proud of my little homeowner!!

  2. keep in mind that those deep colors are hard to paint. casey and i found that out this weekend. we got the paint and primer combo and it's still going to take us 3 coats to go over a beige. even though behr is paint and primer i would suggest priming it yourself just to save the cost of painting that many coats.

    i tried to find the paint colors, but i couldn't :( I like STRIKE A POSE though!!

  3. I like them all, but I think I like Drum Solo better. There you have it. We all three said something different. Good luck!

  4. I'll be the tie-breaker and say Blood Rose :).

  5. Hey Lauren! It's been so long! I found your blog on Ang's page and am your newest follower:) Can't wait to catch up on your fun projects. Since this is the first post I have read on your blog, and have no idea what the rest of your house looks like, I am going to vote entirely on what came to mind first. Drum Solo for sure!
