Before the fun could begin I scraped the popcorn off the ceiling and textured it using the skip trowel method. I painted the ceiling the same off white as the crown molding in the room. It is a messy, nasty task but worth it when it's done it looks so much better!
My vision for the room is a cozy, relaxed, Ralph Lauren, Pottery Barn feel. I am using warm neutrals for the walls, and comforter so I can change out the pillows and accessories easily, from deep green and rusty red in the fall and winter to blues, cream and green in the spring and summer.
The paint color I chose for the walls is Ralph Lauren's Kauai Jungle, as you can see here on the ceiling. I love it because it is the perfect shade between taupe and a subtle golden hue, and I've found it to be a color that looks great in any light. Can't wait to share more of my makeover with you next time.
