Yes, call me old fashioned, but I love a soothing blue bedroom. There is something so calming and elegant about blue, and it has been the color of choice for my bedroom since I was a teenager. However, the perfect shade of blue paint can be difficult to find. So many promising paint chips turn into a cloying shade on the wall, more suited to the room of a child than to a soothing retreat.
As I was watching my TiVo version of Design Star last night, I had a sudden recollection of Matt Lorenz's room from episide 8 of Top Design. When I watched the show in the spring, I loved Matt's 'water' room. Matt agonized over the paint color, and what he came up with is perhaps one of the most beautiful shades of blue I have ever seen - a light and airy blue with a lot of gray in it.
After doing a little internet research, I found that Matt used Pratt & Lambert paint in 'white smoke'. Interestingly, he used an exterior formula flat finish. Now, do I take the plunge and paint my bedroom this color? I am off to the paint store today to investigate the possibility.
