Painting the powder room and decorating updates

Remember the harlequin pattern in the powder room? It’s gone! It’s been replaced with Benjamin Moore’s Wythe blue from the same color strip as Palladian blue in their historical colors.

Harlequin powder room circa 2007. Even though painting this pattern was a lot of work, after 5 years I need a change.

I’d describe Wythe blue as green-blue-grayish.

Palladian blue is in the little hallway off the kitchen, the kitchen and family room. I’d describe it as blue-green. It looks grayish in the pictures, but it’s really not. I’m adding bead board wallpaper and chair rail in there too.

We have been painting fools around here. The ceiling in the kitchen is not done yet, but when it is, this paint party will be over for a while.

I’m waiting to get the new couch before I add much to the family room. Right now there are just a few things on the mantle.

The price for reupholstering our chairs was ridiculous, so I’m thinking about plan B, which is probably slipcovers. It’s getting there.

Soon I’ll be moving to Word Press and Google friends connect will no longer be available to WP blogs. I hope you will follow me on twitter, facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and rss feed in a reader.

Thank you! I appreciate you coming by so much!

  1. Here's a question and I'm just wondering out loud…do you think you will be weary of the blue in five years the way that you are over the Harlequin pattern? (I hope not. Painting is such a pain in the franny.) The blue looks so tranquil and classic.

  2. I loved that harlequin pattern, Debra! I had your bathroom saved on my computer in my decorating ideas folder {pre-Pinterest}. I'm sorry to see it go, but I can understand about making changes to flow with how you feel now, as opposed to five years ago. It is going to look great with the beadboard look under the blue.

  3. Hi Debra! Oh, I really liked your bathroom with the harlequin on the wall, but I know how it is – we all need chance sometimes. That really looks like a nice color. Can't wait to see everything.

  4. I love wythe blue. It's the blue we just put in the family room 😉 I also have paladian blue in our kitchen. Both are great colors!

  5. I love the new color, actually both of the blues! Can't wait to see the reveal 🙂
