Bunnings.

I've been wanting to paint my room for awhile. I've had quite a few different colours over the last year but haven't been happy with any of them - I've had red, turquoise and currently I have a light purple colour which I thought would be good but I just think it's not right for what I want. I originally went to Bunnings looking for a light grey but ended up with more of a beige tone that hopefully will look quite nice in the room. I decided to go for something a little bit warmer than a grey because it's a bit more homey. 

A bunch of options I considered.

Caught mum off guard. She wasn't happy haha.
So. Many. Colours.
The colour I ended up choosing - Frosted Window by Dulux.
I'm going to be painting my room next weekend so I will definitely do before & after pictures and show you how it turns out. Do you want to give your room a makeover? Let me know what your dream room would be like!

Love,
Erin

  1. I like the colour - very clean and minimalistic. Three of the walls of my bedroom are painted in a similar shade than yours, the other one is blue and I love it.

    1. I keep second guessing whether it was the right choice or if I should've gone with Whispering Wind (in the first photo). Hopefully I'll like it once the whole room is done :)

      What kind of blue is your wall?

  2. I have a love/hate for picking paint colours haha, last year we redid out bathroom/toilet and there were so many debates on colours, but we eventually went for a white/grey. I reckon the one you chose will look great in a bedroom!

  3. I painted my room a few years ago and I was so sure what colour I wanted that I didn't have to go through the painful task of choosing! I hope yours works out well! Take some photos when its done? :)

    1. Oh that's awesome :) The thing is I knew what I wanted but there were too many options of how to get a similar result. Of course I'll take pics!

  4. I have been stuck with olive green on my walls since I was 11, it's a nightmare. My parents just dont even consider giving my room a makeover.

    1. Oh no! I was stuck with a red wall for years (red is my least favourite colour) and I just had to take it into my own hands to get rid of it because mum just kept putting it off. Since then I've redone my room twice!
      I hope you get to give your room a makeover in the future! <3

  5. I remember the endless colour choosing nightmare I had when I redecorated my room back home a few years back. I hope you'll be happy with the final result :)(my parents have a very similar colour in their bedroom and it looks really great!); and by the way - you have such a great blog!
