Helloooooooooooooooooo! How you doing? I have a half-painted coastal blue wall I hoped would be good for beach decor.
Guess what? It’s not quite as I hoped.
So I had a bee in my bonnet about this, I wanted a feature wall and I was gonna get one…I wanted a bit of pale beachy coastal blue in my bedroom and I wasn’t gonna stop til I got it.
I styled it here to show you what I had in my mind….just with the putty and flowers and stripes and coastal type things…but it’s not floating my beach cottage boat…hence it has been stuck at this stage :
On the left the blue in different hues…watered down with white paint until this very pale one on the right…
I liked the paint right up until the moment it was on the brush and right away I wasn’t sure
and when it was half way across the wall, I stopped, no point in going any further
a bit like the maxi dress from Coles Mix Apparel (here if you missed that), this looked oh so much better in my head…
So while you mull that over and on the subject of clothes, I thought you might like to see the jeans I was wearing when I took these photos today… which I do love very much and have lived in since I bought them on a whim..a much more successful and much more economical purchase than the paint…
So with the paint, I went for Peaceful Bay and it turned out quite differently on the wall in the light in the bedroom
Your thoughts on that ladies?
Well, now, I know that some of you are professional Beach Cottage Lurkers, I know that others are too time-poor to hit comment and I know that some just can’t be bothered….so I thought why not our first Beach Cottage Blog Poll?
All you have to do is hit the answer yes or no to the question of whether the blue wall stays or not…
(the pictures have turned out lighter than it is, scroll up for the the most true colour in the wide shot of the half-painted wall)
I informed Mr Beach Cottage and the crew that the results of this poll would be final and I would listen to what you had to say..
he laughed all the way to the bank…and said he would eat his hat if I listened to anyone, which is quite interesting because forcing him to eat a hat could be quite attractive to me
So Beach Cottage lovelies, hit that dang button
Should it stay or should it go now?
oh and of course I’d love to hear your thoughts below too ….be seeing ya around, I am off for a walk by the sea and a coffee…therapy I need it :-)
