It’s kind of a small space, but it has a big wall of windows that let in a ton of natural light, which more than makes up for the size. And while I loved the white walls and minimal vibe when we moved in, after being here a few months I was starting to feel like I needed to actually DO something, since I spend so much time in this space. Four months after we moved in, all I had in the entire room was my desk, an office chair, and a second random chair that was basically just being stored. To add an interesting design element, I decided to paint a half wall that spanned the entire room, instead of painting all of the walls from floor to ceiling. I also felt like this would be a good way for me to dip my toes in the color pool while still holding onto the clean white walls in a way. I used a flat finish to keep things looking matte and modern. I remember being a little nervous about it when I started painting because I’ve always loved white walls. But the blue adds a lot of dimension to the space and painting just the bottom half of the wall makes the room feel more intentional / grounded. Once the painting was done, I pulled the room together with some antique finds, artwork, and accessories. I ended up buying a decent amount of new items to bring in. So I could find things that complimented the wall color.
