Master Bedroom Makeover: SHERWIN-WILLIAMS HARMONY® PAINT


***This post is brought to you by Sherwin-Williams & BlogHer.***


 I can not tell you how excited I was a few weeks back to learn that I had been chosen by BlogHer & Sherwin-Williams to participate along with 17 other bloggers in making over a space in our home! The decision of what space to transform was a very easy one for me since I had already been brain storming on ideas for our master bedroom.

If you are anything like me it takes you forever to decide on a paint color for a room. 
From My Front Porch To Yours Master Bedroom Makeover Before:Sherwin-Williams Harmony Paint
About four years ago after painting more than several swatches of color on our master bedroom walls, I finally decided on a color for this space. 
I only ended up deciding on it because I found it in the Oops section at our local hardware store.
From My Front Porch To Yours Master Bedroom Makeover Before:Sherwin-Williams Harmony Paint
I have no idea what the color was even called. As you can see it was a very neutral color, so neutral in fact that Mr. Front Porch asked me why I even bothered.
Unfortunately, I never fully completed painting our master bedroom. I had to stop and wait for Mr. Front Porch to come home from work since some areas were far too high to do on my own.
Since then Mr. Front Porch and I have gotten side tracked by other projects around the house and time just has just flown by. Here we are four years later with half-painted walls and my desire to change the entire look of the space. The first task at hand for this makeover was to choose a new paint color.
Sherwin-Williams has various color selection tools on their site to utilize in helping you with your paint color selections. I chose to use their Color Visualizer where you can picture it before you paint it. The powerful Color Visualizer will turn your computer into a virtual design studio.
With the Color Visualizer you are able to download your own picture or pick from one of their many scenes.
Since I want to redo our bedroom I picked one of their bedroom scenes to play around with. After you select your scene you can then choose what paint colors you would like to paint with. 
The first selection I made was SW 0031 Dutch Tile Blue for the walls. Looks good, but I decided I wanted to see what the ceiling would look like painted even though I have always been a white ceiling kind of gal.
For the ceiling I chose SW 6164 Svelte Sage, which I have used in our home already and love. What a difference a painted ceiling makes! It totally adds the wow factor to this space.
You can spend hours playing around with the Color Visualizer tool, but I needed to get down to business. I downloaded a pic of our actual master bedroom and plugged in some of the colors I was considering using.

First up was SW 7651 Front Porch. I was looking for a color outside my norm and well, Front Porch just called out my name! ;) Not quite what I am looking for though.
Next up I decided to be a bit more bold with my selection and tried out SW 0038 Library Pewter. Awesome color, but I am not brave enough to go that dark. After several more color options I was having a hard time picking out a color knowing that I was changing out our bedding. The hunt was on for our new bedding in hopes it would make my wall color selection easier.
 
Here is what I have come up with for our space! I love anything that has to do with buffalo check and toile, so the bedding selection was fairly easy. I ordered the new bedskirt plus a white quilt. I am having some euro shams made from the toile fabric by one of my blogging pals, Sonya.The buffalo check fabric will either come in as curtains or maybe as a duvet at the end of the bed.
 Now with the fabric choices made I was ready to make my paint selection and instead of painting a ton of swatches on the walls like I normally do, I turned to the Color Visualizer once again and punched in a color I already have used in our home on our fireplace, SW 6211 Rainwashed. 
SW 6211 Rainwashed it is. Sherwin-Williams asked me to try out their Harmony® Interior Acrylic Latex Paint for this project. I was very pleased to learn the many benefits of the Harmony® Paint line. It is a zero VOC formula that helps reduce common indoor odors like those from your pets, cooking and smoke to help rooms stay fresher, longer. And Harmony contains formaldehyde-eliminating technology that helps reduce VOCs from potential sources like carpet insulation and fabrics. It also gives your walls a washable, durable finish. This acrylic paint is GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GreenGuard Certified for Children and Schools.
I can hardly wait to get our entire space painted and share it with you all!

  4. I love the color visualizer. Front Porch and Library Pewter were so pretty but I agree I think Rainwashed is the one. That fabric you picked out is perfect! Classic, beautiful, and timeless.

It is so pretty. Thanks!

  6. It looks like you have made some beautiful choices for your bedroom I'm certainly looking forward to seeing it all done up in all your new color choices! I too would love to have some beautiful new paint to brighten my bedroom, I have chosen a quilt and other decorative items, but not sure what color of paint I need, i think I will down load a picture and get started! Also love the new paint choices from Sherwin Williams!

  7. It looks like a great color, Pamela! I love that you can upload a picture of your actual room. I would probably paint our master bedroom, too. Our main rooms need to be painted at some point, too, but since it is all open {and very high vaulted ceilings} we will have to get pros in for that. The bedroom I think we can handle.

  66. What a great prize! We were flooded April 29th and our house is down to the studs so painting process will begin as soon as sheet rock is up. Loving the grays and white trim throughout but need help determining which gray and white. Love SW paints! And, love that I discovered this great blog today!
