Project Craft Room – Step 1: Paint!

When I’m focused on a project (especially something that makes me happy) I don’t stop. Project Craft Room is the definition of 100% focus, and the paint job is all done!

As I mentioned on the ground zero post, this color palette inspired me to know what I wanted my craft room to look like. Basically, I want:

– Light teal/aqua walls

– White furniture

– Pale pink highlights

It’s super important for me to stay within these colors, because when we moved into our house a couple of years ago, I had originally intended to keep a dark teal, white and black scheme for the whole room, but my love of Britto art took over and the scheme went out the window. So this time around, I’m serious!

I went to Lowe’s to find a suitable light teal/aqua color, and I just fell in LOVE with a Valspar tone called “Frosty,” and it was the perfect choice. The color looks beautiful in contrast with the dark laminate floor, and the incoming light from the window just accents it even more. Besides my love for the color in general (it’s been among my favorites since the dawn of time), I recently read a study on the Color Psychology of Teal, and it turns out that its combination of blue and green tones makes for the perfect relaxation formula. “Blue positively communicates feelings of tranquillity and calm,” states Karen Haller, a renowned color and design consultant in the UK, “whilst green,” she continues, “positively evokes feelings of peace and balance. Teal is a great color to use where you wish to relax and unwind – to regain balance and equilibrium after a hectic busy day.”

This is exactly what I want from my craft room/home office. A space where I want to be, that helps me clear my mind, relax, and fuels my creativity. Needless to say, I’m STOKED with the results!

Now that the color is finished, I’m trying to take out all of the furniture so I can see the space and plan out how to best distribute each area. I’m so ready to create 😀 How do you like the color? Wasn’t the color psychology info interesting? Knowing this, what color would you choose for your work space? Leave a comment!
