This week was all about decluttering the room, finalizing paint selections and ordering the furniture and decor. So here is a snapshot of my progress!
I finalized the paint colors for the guest bedroom. You would think it would've been very easy to select a black and white paint color but they are not all created equal. The two black paint colors I was deciding between were Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black SW 6258 and Sherwin Williams Caviar SW 6990. Let me tell you it was not easy! I loved them both , but the Tricorn Black won because it faired the best in every lighting condition and at all different times of the day. I will insert another photo so you can see the difference. The Caviar is on the left and the Tricorn Black is on the right. What you may be able to see is that in my room the Caviar paint color has a blue undertone that showed up that I didn't care for. The Tricorn Black stayed very close to true black without any noticeable undertones in my room thus it became the winner.
The White paint choices were Sherwin Williams High Reflective White SW 7757 and Sherwin Williams Pure White SW 7005. I loved both but due to this room not having overhead lighting I decided to go with the High Reflective White. The Pure White was a close second but it looked more creamy instead of the crisp bright white I envision for the space to contrast the black accent wall, entry door, and closet door. The High Reflective White is great for a space that doesn't receive bright light at all times of the day. Especially if you want that crisp white look. At night the soft white table lamp bulbs will give the High Reflective White a soft warm inviting glow. I will insert a photo below so you can see the difference between the two white paint colors. The top is Pure White and the bottom is High Reflective White. They are very close but at night is where you notice a significant difference.
