The lights and walls are done and I love the color so much I want to spend all my time there.
I've used saturated colors before, but this is by far the deepest. What's interesting is that the room feels brighter now, even with a deeper color.
It all started with this:
my inspiration for our new house.
I just couldn't decide if I wanted "light and airy "or "deep and colorful."
I finally selected this color:
Calypso Blue CC-727
I liked the energy it had and of course the color itself!
In case you need a reminder, here's how it looked before the paint went up.
Now that the entry is white, I love the new walls even more. The rust red didn't take into account the brown-ish red color of our exterior, or the bright pink flowering bush outside our window.
Calypso blue, however, makes everything look better. :-)
