Remember This?


After dozens of samples and months of gray primer, I finally settled on a color.



It's a Dulux color. I've never used the paint before, but after many, many trips to the neighborhood Benjamin Moore store and Home Depot, I tried it. The color, "The Blues," really brightens up a very tiny space. And it doesn't make me want to "accidentally" smash cover up that art glass window.

Dulux: I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship...

That color is really cool. And it makes the glass window look awesome.

colors work beautifully together, bravo! world of interiors has incredible "gauze" article/photos in feb. issue...it would be fun to find a bit of that and grace the window with it, keeping color but in a more abstract way, a bit hazier...just a thought...the room is heavenly now!

I like the blue, and I think it helps the window.

And like your tag, I think Ben Moore is overrated too. I think they do whites well, but I rarely paint anything white. On the basis of coverage I've found Sherwin Williams Cashmere works beautifully.

I've been a fan of the Dulux for a while now, hopefully you find it as good! Wonderful colour choice too.

Thanks everyone!

Anon - I will definitely check that out because there is an even larger art glass window in the second floor bath and that will be a future project.

But first, my bedroom!

Great color choice...really makes the stained glass pop. You should either get a larger mirror...or a shelf above the pedestal would give you more storage for soap, lotion, etc. and fill in the negative space.

Looks fantastic, and I'll take whatever stained glass windows you tire of...

Please don't tell me there is better paint than Benjamin Moore! I don't think I can stand to have that much quality in my house. Also, does Dulux come with a Sanders?

Love the blue! Nice pick.

BTW, Erin - I do think B. Moore is overrated. Sorry. But guys like Sanders are priceless.
