Making our Bedroom Happier – Part 1

When Mr. Bean and I moved into our condo, our bedroom was a deep yellow colour as seen below:

(Note: this photo is deceiving – in some lights, it almost looked like there was grey and green mixed in with the yellow.)

As you hopefully know, darker coloured paint = apparently smaller room. Our room is fairly small and not extremely well lit (being in the basement and all) so having such a dark colour didn’t make any sense. Plus, I wanted to make it happier, so we decided to repaint, with a lighter shade of yellow.

So what did I do? I taped the samples to the wall. We ended up picking “lemon sorbet.” Doesn’t that sound tasty?

Next,  I taped up the room:

And began painting! (Can you tell I’m impressed with my taping job?)

If you could repaint any room in your house, which room and what colour would you pick?

  1. When we moved into this house my parents asked me to pick a wall color. I chose yellow. Now, I just wish I had remembered that “tan” is a COLOR! Ha.
