Just finished painting my bedroom...

and I just love how it turned out!

I used a Laura Ashley color from Lowes called Ironwood. It complements my bathroom, which is painted in Laura Ashley's Spring Lilac, perfectly.
I love being surrounded by color and I love painting. It's such an inexpensive, fun way to add color quickly either to the whole room or by accenting a wall or one particular area. It can lend a dramatic or subtle look. In any event, it brings a new and fresh energy to a space. And the "work" of painting is pure bliss. The way the brush or roller glides over a surface and by it's interaction, changes it entirely. I love watching the color take over. And I love watching the room or canvas transform. When I'm following my inspiration and not contriving anything, happy surprises abound.
