I have been not only getting ready for Christmas this past week, I have also been moving to my new, full time home in New Hampshire:
It has been a crazy couple of weeks, but I am really enjoying myself. I think part of this joy might be that both my kids and the new baby Jameson is coming to spend Christmas here! I can’t wait!
Anyway! When we moved one of the bedrooms upstairs around, I wanted to use this wood headboard we brought from our previous home in RI that both my husband and I love. When we put against the wall, I really was struck how beautiful the wood looked with the wall color:
This paint color is Ben Moore Gentleman’s Gray 2062-20. A beautiful mid- tone turquoise blue.
I really love the mid to dark wall paint colors with stained trim and wood. They just work so well together as you can see:
I have mentioned this preference for mid to dark colors for walls with stained trim here, here, and here. I love the richness of the darker colors with the stained wood rather than a high contrast look with white walls and stained wood.
What do say you readers? Do you prefer the darker paint colors with stained wood or white walls with stained wood? Love to hear your thoughts!
I hope you are having fun getting ready for the Holiday’s! xo
