I usually go for light. Light fabric, light colors, lots of windows. For some reason I have been dying to paint a room in our home brown.
I went with our bedroom because it is big, and has lots of windows. I thought it could handle the brown paint. I am so glad that I did it!
The paint is called Blanket Brown, by Behr.
I wanted to go darker but I knew it would be much darker in my room than it was on the paint card.
We also added crown moulding. Not wood, styrofoam. Recycled styrofoam. No nails to put in, no cutting corners either. My husband and I put this up Friday night. It took about three hours.
We ordered it from here, and we love it! We will be doing all the bathrooms next!
