My client...oops, I mean, my heartmate and I finally agreed on a paint color for our study room. The walls were a pale grey before which gave it an airy vibe but it was a little bland. We wanted more contrast and richer tones. We picked navy, because navy is the new black! Initially, I wanted to go blush or a pistachio color but he vetoed those so we chose Valspar's royal navy. I usually prefer white walls when working with a small space but if you have lots of light pouring into a room, why not go darker. I was a little overwhelmed at first but after styling a gallery wall, it just completed the space. And I love it! Hanging art on the wall was a great way to add some color and break up that darkness. The gold leaf frames look so good with the navy! And I love my new abstract painting. It feels like something I would've painted myself. If you wanna know my trick to styling a gallery wall, hop on over to West Elm to see how easy it is!
