Which paint color would you like to see in my bedroom?

I was considering black walls, now I'm leaning toward gray, but navy blue keeps creeping into my ideas. I'm hoping to paint the bedroom right away. However, I can't decide on a paint color. Shown above are my eight contenders. They're all from Sherwin-Williams because of the 4-Day Super Sale knocking a whole 40% off paints. That's quite a deal, so I'm going with it.

As a little reminder, you can see below what else will be in the room. My red headboard, colorful quilt, wooden dresser, typewriter stand painted green, a Gone with the Wind poster, cream curtains, and some burlap accents. 

Which of the warm grays or midnight blues do you think will best suit my bedroom?

I would be leaning toward Rainstorm, or Roycroft Pewter. I really like the Loyal Blue, too, but I guess there is a chance it could be overwhelming since it is one of the more saturated & darker of the options here. But, you could always paint one wall a more intense color and the other three something a little less overwhelming! And I might be wrong about it being too much, too; I just remember that I tend to lean towards things and then realize that, in big doses, they’re a bit too intense, so I’m self-censoring a bit here. Best of luck with your decision!

Thanks, gluedtoapost, for your input! I, too, am leaning toward the Rainstorm or Roycroft Pewter.

I know what you mean about too much of something being a bad thing. When I still lived at home, I briefly had a hot pink room. Hence "briefly." Luckily, I wholeheartedly believe I could live with any of these colors on all four walls for a long time. :)

I'd go with Rainstorm or three white walls and one Loyal Blue, I wouldn't go for grey in a bedroom so lean towards intense colours but I wouldn't do that to a whole room but have a highlighted wall (who am I kidding? I come from the 'any colour you'd like providing it's white' school of decorating!) I

I think Loyal Blue could be gorgeous on just one wall. I'm also a big fan of the Grizzle Gray. I can't wait to see what you come up with! xo

Haha! I come from the 'surrounded by color' school of decorating. ;)

Ah, decisions, decisions!

Thanks, Ali Bee! I can't wait to actually settle on a paint color. ;)

While I'm a huge fan of deep blue walls (like Rainstorm), I think with a neutral grey base will allow all of your furniture & accessories to pop. And since paint usually dries a little darker than the swatch color, I think Grizzle Gray would be beautiful (and come out looking a bit like Roycroft Pewter)!

I think Rainstorm would look amazing with your bedroom decor!


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
