The Wall I Had Longed to Paint

Hello, friends!

If you’ve been reading this blog for even a short period of time, you are probably queued into my little color affair I have going with Navy. Well, let me tell you, Navy does not disappoint! Today I get to reveal the long-awaited navy wall I have been pining for this past month.

So, here it is (I feel like there should be a drum roll ala Nat’l Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation):

Before

After

The color is Valspar Signature Collection “Mystified” 4011-8 purchased from Lowe’s.

Here are some after shots of the room with its little mini-makeover.

I love how bright and rich it is!

Enjoy your Thursday and check out today’s fallspiration if you haven’t already!

    I love the color. It looks beautiful as an accent wall. I never thought of using navy but this looks amazing!

      Thanks, Kelly! That was the plan. To have one gorgeous wall and have the eye carry to the navy around the other parts of the wall :) xoxo Kristin

    I love how dramatic it is! All of the white accents really pop against it. I don’t think navy is a colour choice I would have ever thought of for the walls, but I really like how it looks!

      It took the room from boring to WOW! That’s what I wanted. Most of my personal spaces I like light and bright, but I wanted this to have a little moment! Thanks so much! xoxo Kristin

    Very good choice as the navy is a wonderful backdrop for all the things you show in your photos.

    Looks nice! I was at Target the other day & thought of you when I saw that they are now selling mercury glass! Your mercury glass looks so pretty against the navy.

      Thanks! Good eye, I got that tartan from a antique mall, it was still on a bolt,never been used and had the old tags on it from the vendor in Scotland. Very cool! xoxo Kristin

    I absolutely love your home! And this new color on the wall is really beautiful! I noticed that you have these amazingly cute side tables! Really love them too! You have such a great talent for decorating! Have a great day and keep on creating this amazing beauty and help inspire others to do the same!
