This week I did an extensive refresh to a 2nd floor master suite. Stripped the wall paper, prepped the existing trim and walls for new paint, added trim that was missing. This room just wasn't helping all the rest of the improvements we did to the home to sell it.
Here is the room before. Ugly, torn wallpaper and a color scheme that just wasn't working. Missing trims and dated fixtures.
BAMM! (borrowed from Emeril) A grey/green paint with the darker shade on the bottom and the lighter on the slanted and flat ceiling. The trims were all caulked and painted to give it a professional quality finish.
We picked the light color first and then stayed on the same card for the accent. This is a pretty good rule of thumb to follow when selecting multiple colors in the room.
Check out the trim and the accents on this knee wall.
New chair rail trim and white accent paint gave this 1940s home a real sprucing up. Bye, bye wall paper.
After.... simple and clean. Ready for a new owner to decorate with their own items, not a paint can.
All of the walls were primed first to ensure that the old color would not bleed through and that the new coats of paint would stick. The primer also seals in any pet odors.
