• Breakin out the brush. Again.

    So, my Mom got us some great-looking bedding for our birthday’s this year…

    (Yes, we’re 36 years old and we still get excited about birthday presents. Especially when they involve several pieces of our first, real grown up bedding emsemble.)

    She got us the Grand Embroidered duvet (white, with Porcelain Blue stitching), and the Clearlake quilt and it’s two coordinating standard shams. (all from Pottery Barn)

    We already had the monogrammed Grand Embroidered boudoir pillow cover, and the two accent pillow covers- which by the way, also all came from Pottery Barn.


    And if you follow us on Twitter, you already know about the Pottery Barn (Porcelain Blue) Matine Toile quilt and shams I won on eBay last week…

    And if you read this post, you know that I was planning to use the color on this wall as my inspiration…

    It’s Benjamin Moore’s “Wedgewood Gray”.

    So one day a couple of weeks ago, while I got my roots painted at the hair salon…

    Kevin painted two of our bedroom walls to see how it would look.

    But unfortunately, Wedgewood Gray ended up looking a little too Wedgewood BLUE.

    In our room, it actually looks more like it does in this photo…

    So I started having doubts.

    And I started having discussions about re-painting…

    And since it was sorta hard to see the actual colors on the video, here’s a photo that shows a truer version of what’s goin on…

    See how good that soothing Sea Salt looks with those beautiful blankies!?

    There is one more color I might get a sample of too though.
    (Why not, right?)

    It’s called “Blue Hubbard”, and it’s made by Sherwin Williams.

    Phoebe Howard says this about it…

    “It’s a grayish blue I’ve used many times. My clients are crazy for it. There’s just enough green in it to keep it from being icy.”

    Sounds good to me!


    Here are a few more pretty blue-greens I considered trying out…

    Abbe from Studio Ten 25 used Sherwin Williams “Rainwashed”…

    Gorgeous, huh?

    But after seeing this photo of a Rainwashed-painted bathroom, I thought it might look too bright in our room during the day…

    (Our master bedroom is the brightest room in the house.)


    I also toyed with the idea of using Sherwin Williams “Quietude”…

    Heather at Create H, used it in this awesome house…

    …but I’m thinkin’ it may be a little too “Wedgewood GREEN” for our room, if ya know what I mean.

    (But what a BEAUTIFUL color it is though, huh?)


    So I think it’s gonna come down to either Sea Salt or Blue Hubbard…

    It really just depends which looks better with Mr. Clearlake and his trusty sidekicks- Sham-a-lama and Ding-Dong…

    Yes, I’m 36 years old and I create crazy names for my beautiful birthday bedding too.
