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 downside 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 can have drastically totally 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 taken care of that makeover.
Then I got here throughout some enjoyable, cheap furnishings legs on Amazon (they’re solely $20, and you can find them here), and determined to attempt them on the dresser. The swap was very simple. Eradicating the unique base with the walnut trim and walnut legs was a quite simple matter of loosening six screws, after which entire factor got here off as one piece. Then I simply screwed the brand new ft on, and voila! A complete 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 entire factor. The colours on the partitions of this room are in a really particular order. They’re in a gradient from the darkest coral colour (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 extensive 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 see on this photograph.
I used to be so pleased with how completely my plan turned out, however the longer I reside with this massive wall painted in that darkest coral colour, the extra I’ve come to dislike it in such a big dose. I completely like it within the slender stripes. However I can’t take a complete wall painted that colour. (As a lot as I’ve made strides in including heat colours to our residence, my coronary heart nonetheless belongs to my beloved teals and greens on the subject of massive doses of colour.)
In order that brings me to the choices that I’ve provide you with 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 stored 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 good. They’re not all precise, however they’re very complementary.
I do know out of your feedback that a few of you’ve gotten a tough time with a lot colour and sample, however I like a number of colour and sample, so the mixture of a floral wallpaper and the striped partitions appears proper up my alley. I additionally like that it could be a number of colour and sample, whereas remaining gentle and brilliant 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 tremendous with me doing no matter I need, simply so long as I don’t paint the partitions scorching pink. 😀
I had puzzled how my new “Sweat The Loopy Out” neon signal would look towards wallpaper, however then yesterday, I saw this picture on my Instagram feed, and I like how that appears! So the wallpaper is certainly within the operating.
The one downside is that it’s the most costly choice, but it surely’s additionally a comparatively quick choice that I may 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 may be an affordable choice, however it could be probably the most time-consuming. I do like it, although! It retains issues vibrant, colourful, and attention-grabbing.
The ultimate choices is clearly the simplest and quickest, and that’s to color your complete closet space one stable colour. It must be one of many cool colours (teals or greens). I’ve to confess that whereas it’s simple and quick and will get performed at the moment, it’s the choice I’m the least enthusiastic about. It simply appears so uninteresting (which is one situation I had with the stable coral wall), and actually doesn’t do something for me. However the quick and straightforward side of it appeals to me, for positive.
What do you suppose? Ought to I head to Etsy and purchase some wallpaper? Head to Dwelling Depot and purchase a couple of rolls of painters tape? Or simply get out the paint curler and get the fast and straightforward job performed this afternoon?
