Living Room Refresh

As was mentioned in my November post I was planning on giving my living room a refresh with a colour change!

Having decided I wanted a blush pink to tie in with all the other accessories in the room I had my heart set on a colour such as this which was made my Colour Courage. Unfortunately, my local diy store decided to stop stocking this brand just before I wanted it and I was more than a little disappointed when I realised.

I wasn’t about to give up there so I decided to have a chat with the girls on the counter where they mix the paint to what ever colour you desire. I explained what colour I was after and they were able to mix this but then I found one that was almost identical in their swatch range that I think I preferred to my original choice!

Mix your own colours at B&Q – this picture doesn’t do the actual colours any justice!

I already had a grey on my feature wall but I wanted to refresh that too and again they stopped stocking my original colour so I took the plunge and had both colours mixed. Because my daughter fancies herself a bit of a Picasso I decided to opt for a washable paint! Below is my before and after shots of the room.

White walls before which I don’t think gave it any character!
I love my new rosy cosy living room!

The pink did take two coats but I turned this project around in a day and I am very surprised about how far the paint went! I still have half a tin of the 5L pink and practically a full stone of the 2.5L grey! So if I need any future touch ups it won’t be a dash to the store to get more made!

I would love to hear you thoughts on this room refresh!

Hope your all staying safe and have a lovely week!
