I did lots of research after we purchased the house and tried to go with colors I knew would be condusive to a home that faces North.
remember our style board?
Luckily our last home faced north, as well so it made things a hair easier.
I knew anything with brown undertones would make the room way way dark.
There are no windows to the right wall (west wall) and therefore I would only have very faint light from noon til about 4:30.
We ended up settling on a Valspar color.
Fairmont Penthouse Stone
Shanty 2 Chic did a great job documenting the process.
She picked the same color!!
Mine is not quite this bright. Looks much more grey in my space, we also chose the satin finish for a higher sheen since the room is so dark.
Here is the before of the room.
We could only go up from here right?
Biggest issue for me here was front door shot to see a side view of a piece of furniture.
Basically it took3 months of rearranging before I deemed this some that blog worthy!
And the light. For me it's the piece de resistance for the room!
Be back tomm with more details on the light and some accessories I have found over the past few weeks!
