Paint has magical powers when it comes to home design. You can easily transform a space in a weekend or, in my case, a few hours. Last week I showed you what I did with paint to update my bedroom. Today I’m back to tell you about the feature wall paint in my home office.
As I explained last week, I decided to use paint to create feature walls in my apartment. Because I’ve been hesitant to paint my entire place, I thought this would give my rooms a homey feel with less commitment. And boy was I right.
Here is my office before.
And here it is now.
Nice change, right? I decided to go with a navy for this feature wall paint. The exact color is Indigo Batik from Sherwin Williams.
I went back and forth with a few color ideas, but this navy works wonderfully with the wood tones in my credenza. it also makes the gold and brass in this space come to life. I couldn’t be more pleased.
On this new feature wall, I plan to create a functional wall of art. I picked up these two bulletin boards at The Container Store to get me started. This room would probably benefit from a mirror so that may go back there as well. Time will tell.
The lamp is from HomeGoods. The gold details and iridescent charcoal base were calling my name. I think it’s well-suited to the space.
The rest of this room is also coming together. I’ll be sharing more of what’s on the opposite wall in a future post. I did end up moving the rug from my bedroom in here. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
You may have noticed that I finally hung curtains. Again, I’ll update you on those in another post. The sheers I put up are visible here. I decided to install a double rod so I could have curtains and sheers. As much as I love my big windows, having the morning sun hit me in the eyes isn’t ideal for getting work done. The sheers should solve that issue while still letting all the beautiful natural light in.
So what do you think of my feature wall paint? Quite a difference, right?
I’m looking forward to sharing more of my office with you. Stay tuned!
