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?
