Cali's "Warm and Cozy" Room
Warm and Cozy
The paint color is Benjamin Moore's Shenandoah Taupe. Depending on the time of day it looks grey or brown. The room has a north facing window so it gets a fair amount of light all day long that really affects the color depending on the time of day. The other colors are from the art and pillows and are hopefully balanced by the white bed.
I painted the room about a year ago in the fall and wanted something warm and cozy for the season and this pretty much fit the bill. I was afraid I would want a change come springtime, something light and airy, but I found I really love the darker color for the bedroom.
This was my first foray into color since I normally veer toward neutral (by which I really mean white) but I took the plunge and don't regret it. I figured I could always repaint if I didn't like it. So I think you should just take some chances...sometimes they will work out and sometimes they won't. But I do think that color should also me tempered by large doses of neutral.
