When I lived in my old townhouse, I was so shy to share certain rooms in my house because of all the psychedelic wallpaper and for the most part. All the bathrooms had some type of problem. I know I should not complain, but that is the truth. I remember being on the phone to a local electrician because something was wrong with the wiring in my bathroom, and I needed someone to come out and fix it. Thankfully, there was a New Canaan service nearby that was glad to come out and help. Here in the new house it is another story…the walls are all neutral in color, I have great lighting, and best of all, NO wallpaper. Everything in this home is a blank canvas. I know I said I would do not have any intentions of painting any walls, but I needed to shake things up (a little) bit in this house. After teaming up with Ace Hardware, I decided to visit The Paint Studio to get some inspiration for a paint color. The color I chose to go with is Valspar’s, Planet Earth and the room I chose to paint was the master bath.
Let’s talk about the color “Planet Earth”…it is vibrant, soothing, moody and a perfect color to make a statement. It is also one of the colors for this month’s Ace Hardware 31 Days of Color campaign. I REALLY like this color, so much so I decided to DIY a bathroom shelf and paint the back of the shelf using Planet Earth. I know this color selection may come as a shock to some, but it should not. Although not black (my go-to color) this color is rich in a way that it gives off the moody vibe that I love but it is not overpowering in this small space. When the sun shines in this room, this room feels a ton lighter than it actually looks. I also like the fact that this color compliments all of my favorite colors so making seasonal home decor changes will be a breeze. The bathroom has been an enjoyable room to decorate. We had to find a company that worked with Brisbane hot water systems but once they were sorted, the bathroom was finished! The previous owners didn’t have hot water in this bathroom but since we all shower so often, it seemed like a necessity! I’m so pleased with how it looks!
While I was searching for some inspiration at The Paint Studio, there were so many other colors that caught my eye — Colors that were so on point with my style and that I typically gravitate towards. I may have to save those paint inspiration colors for other projects. You should check out the colors that they have featured for the 31 Days of Color Campaign.
