I’ve been combating the colour that I selected for the house fitness center closet space for some time now. This wasn’t a brand new drawback that arose with the dresser makeover. However I’ve additionally been combating deciding what to do with the closet space. So far as I can see, I’ve three choices, and all three could have drastically completely different impacts on the room.
However earlier than we get to these choices, let me present you the dresser. As I confirmed you on Tuesday, I gave the dresser a makeover (you may see the entire thing from starting to finish right here), and that is the way it sorted that makeover.
Then I got here throughout some enjoyable, cheap furnishings legs on Amazon (they’re solely $20, and you will discover them right here), and determined to strive them on the dresser. The swap was very straightforward. Eradicating the unique base with the walnut trim and walnut legs was a quite simple matter of loosening six screws, after which complete factor got here off as one piece. Then I simply screwed the brand new ft on, and voila! An entire new look.
I actually can’t inform which method I like higher. I like that the walnut trim and ft present up higher towards the carpet, however I like the sunshine and ethereal look of the brand new ft. Anyway, let me know your ideas.
However now again to the principle matter — the partitions within the closet space. Right here’s the irony of this complete factor. The colours on the partitions of this room are in a really particular order. They’re in a gradient from the darkest coral shade (Watermelon Punch) to the darkest teal (Summer time Dragonfly) after which again to the coral. (You may see all the colours right here.) And I very painstakingly measured and figured in order that the sample of the strips would simply be completely deliberate, with the vast stripe behind the Swedish ladder being the darkest teal, and the again wall of the closet being the darkest coral. And, I imply, it landed completely, which you’ll be able to see on this picture.
I used to be so happy with how completely my plan turned out, however the longer I reside with this massive wall painted in that darkest coral shade, the extra I’ve come to dislike it in such a big dose. I completely adore it within the slender stripes. However I can’t take an entire wall painted that shade. (As a lot as I’ve made strides in including heat colours to our house, my coronary heart nonetheless belongs to my beloved teals and greens with regards to massive doses of shade.)
In order that brings me to the choices that I’ve give you for this space. First, I very randomly got here throughout some floral wallpaper on Etsy that caught my eye. I used to be amazed at how the colours within the wallpaper appeared to completely complement the colours of the stripes. For days, I saved going again to have a look at it, so I lastly ordered a pattern to see it within the room. And yep, the colours are excellent. They’re not all actual, however they’re very complementary.
I do know out of your feedback that a few of you’ve a tough time with a lot shade and sample, however I like plenty of shade and sample, so the mix of a floral wallpaper and the striped partitions appears proper up my alley. I additionally like that it might be plenty of shade and sample, whereas remaining mild and shiny with its white background. And earlier than you ask, Matt doesn’t care if I cowl the partitions in floral wallpaper. So long as he can see the TV, he’s high quality with me doing no matter I would like, simply so long as I don’t paint the partitions sizzling pink. 😀
I had questioned how my new “Sweat The Loopy Out” neon signal would look towards wallpaper, however then yesterday, I noticed this image on my Instagram feed, and I like how that appears! So the wallpaper is certainly within the working.
The one downside is that it’s the most costly choice, nevertheless it’s additionally a comparatively quick choice that I might get completed in a day as soon as the wallpaper arrives. I do type of hesitate to spend that a lot cash on wallpaper solely to cowl up a lot of it with a dresser, TV, two full-length mirrors, and a neon signal.
The following choice can be to proceed the stripes onto the again wall of the closet space. I attempted to do a mockup utilizing the precise colours that may be used on the wall. I had a tough time with the width of the stripes (naturally, they’d all be the identical width), however these are the colours that may fall in line on that wall.
That will be an affordable choice, however it might be probably the most time-consuming. I do adore it, although! It retains issues vibrant, colourful, and fascinating.
The ultimate choices is clearly the best and quickest, and that’s to color the complete closet space one strong shade. It must be one of many cool colours (teals or greens). I’ve to confess that whereas it’s straightforward and quick and will get achieved in the present day, it’s the choice I’m the least enthusiastic about. It simply appears so boring (which is one challenge I had with the strong coral wall), and actually doesn’t do something for me. However the quick and simple side of it appeals to me, for positive.
What do you assume? Ought to I head to Etsy and purchase some wallpaper? Head to House Depot and purchase just a few rolls of painters tape? Or simply get out the paint curler and get the short and simple job achieved this afternoon?
