Storm blue walls with woodplank wallpaper

Recently I’ve become obsessed with deep, inky blues and charcoals, and decided to give our bedroom a bit of a makeover.  Regular readers will remember it’s a big, high-ceilinged room, connected to a bathroom which floods with morning light;

A couple of years ago I papered the chimney breast in woodplank wallpaper, and have done very little to it since.

…until now!

I handmixed three paint shades together until I got the colour I wanted; a deep, inky-blue that changes with the light, becoming velvety and absorbing as dusk falls, but clean and striking in daylight hours.  I used it on a single wall, facing tall picture windows that suffuse the room with light.

It provides a  contrast to the fireplace and the vintage French windows we’ve finally hung on the wall…

And meet my other new ‘makeover’ investment; this beautiful Seco Octo curved wood light, which is mesmerising when lit.  We first saw one in a store in Paris and I quietly obsessed about it for a year before buying one!

We love the change; subtle and strong; deep and enveloping.  An evening colour, for relaxing and cocooning.

p.s. It’s just as well I like the colour, because I am still washing flecks of it from my hair, my forearms, my shoes…

Have a wonderful weekend!
