Happy Sunday, friends!! This is a fun day for me, being able to show you my bedroom makeover. I mentioned to you this past week (check out my post here) that I partnered with Sherwin Williams again for National Painting Week. This year I chose to focus on my bedroom and give it fresh coat of color. I love the result!
Before, the bedroom was painted in a white/mint hue. It worked for us but after awhile I wanted a change. A dramatic change.
I chose to paint just one wall, my bed wall, in Rock Bottom, a super deep charcoal. It instantly gave my bedroom a different feel. I use mostly white bedding so I wanted to create a dramatic contrast. Also, I used Sherwin Williams Emerald paint, which covered quite nicely. We used just under 2 gallons for this project.
I’m on a major brass and gold kick and the combo of gold and charcoal is flooring me! Knowing myself, I might be talking several clients into this look.
I chose not to use a headboard. The wall itself is my giant headboard and I love the simplicity of it all. Sometimes too much can take away from a space.
So there you have it! Thanks Sherwin Williams for inspiring us all to add new life into our homes by a simple coat of paint.
Head over to Curbly today to see what paint project they’ve created! And check out yesterdays projects from The Decorista and The City Sage. Also get a sneak peek of all 14 paint projects over on Huffington Post. AND the Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week SuperSale started yesterday and goes through April 22nd. It will offer 40% off paints and stains and 30% off painting supplies.
This post is brought to you by Sherwin Williams. All opinions are completely mine.
Happy Friday friends! I’m checking out BUT will be back on SUNDAY for my Sherwin Williams National Painting Week reveal of my bedroom! So COME BACK! I think you’ll like it.
I leave you with these paintings from one of my favorite artists, Kirra Jamison. She’s absolutely amazing. One day I hope to have one of her pieces in my home.

It’s no secret that I love pillows! Especially colorful pillows. It’s the easiest and best way to change up a room. I’m in love with these multi-textured and multi-colored pillows by Juliette Beaupin. They’ve been named DAN and are handmade in Juliette’s parisian studio.
Juliette also carries chairs and gifts. I LOVE everything!

I’ve been enjoying green lately. Above is some serious green goodness that I would use in my home in a heartbeat.
There is SO much to love about this Austin home tour seen on Apartment Therapy. First thing to love is that friend and photographer Adrienne Breaux did an amazing job capturing this home. Second thing to love is Architect and builder Cass Cheesar and his wife, Carla Umlauf-Cheesar, a native Austinite and realtor, designed a home that is true to it’s roots and absolutely gorgeous to view.
What makes this dining room so stunning is the mix of textures and materials. It’s a mid-century haven.
Their laid back style creates a homey feel in every room. Those club chairs compliment the swan picture perfectly!
Bright and white is the name of the game for this kitchen. I could do some serious cooking here.
I’m drooling over this blanket at the foot of the bed…
This is one of my favorite areas of the home. The gold bird figurines are super cool!
Lots of color creates a super fun bedroom for their daughter.
Wouldn’t you want to vacation here?!
Another shot of the beautiful dining space.

I would hands down live in this Melbourne home! I love the soothing wood tones mixed with serene colors. It’s a looker!!
This is all I can think about this morning.
How many of us agree that paint can change the entire look and mood of a space?! A room can look completely different in only a day when painted. Or piece of furniture can have a totally new look when painted. That is why I’m a paint advocate! And why I have teamed up Sherwin Williams again for National Painting Week, this week! Remember last year when I painted my husband’s junior high dresser for NPW?? Well this year I’m tackling my bedroom! I knew that I wanted a dark moody grey to create a dramatic wall in my bedroom. I had been admiring grey bedrooms (like both shown) for awhile. That’s where Sherwin Williams Chip It application came in handy!
I downloaded my favorite grey bedroom online and this application matched paint colors to it. GENIUS! It made the decision that much easier. And it also showed me what accent colors to use. I’m sold on this application and will be using it for my clients.
So peeps, starting TODAY, National Painting Week will feature painting ideas, lots of color inspiration, product information and crazy cool projects from 14 design bloggers, starting with Little Green Notebook and Coco+Kelley. Make sure that you stop by each blog this week to check out their projects. My project will be live here on Simply Grove Sunday, April 21st. Happy painting!
My little Ethan turned 8 years old on Wednesday. I just can’t believe that I have an 8 year old!! I feel like I’m still 18 and not responsible enough for an 8 year old, right??? Crazy town. I’m so proud of my boy. He shines wherever he goes. I could cry thinking about what a miracle boy he is. 4 years ago I wrote this on his birthday.
For his birthday, Ethan wanted to have a few of his friends over. Because he loves EVERY sport and because golf is his favorite, I covered the table in trophies from all types of activities, bought green baseball cupcakes and decorated with green, in honor of the Masters this week. Ethan had a great time, and that’s all that matters.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Midnight Mood Color Palette.
We see fashionista’s color blocking their clothes and it always look modern and fun. Why not color block your wall?! These color block graphics by Mina Javid use color and crisp geometry to add coolness to your space. The key is placing them on a clean white wall to allow the color to pop.
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect desk that is unique in it’s style and offers great storage. This Babylon Tower Desk designed by Swedish designers Kristian Andréason and Kristin Leibel is super cool with it’s ombre affect and random wood arrangement. A cool feature with this desk is that it collapses into a very flat pack. Love that!

I wanted to show you a sneak peek of a home I did last week in LA. The house itself is flipping fantastic so filling it with great design was a blast. Above is an area right off of the living room. You’ll recognize pieces from West Elm and CB2. My favorite detail is the Family light boxes designed by the Novagratz and sold at CB2. At night it glows perfectly. I also added some ceramic goodness from Heath Ceramics.
