I painted the conservatory ceiling Valspar’s “Hydrangea” which I love.
Originally I was thinking of painting it with Ralph Lauren’s denim technique. I was pretty sure going over the ceiling at least 5 times (primer, 2 base coats, 1 glaze coat, one combing technique) would be way too labor intensive on a ceiling.
Meanwhile, in the dining room I’ve been waiting to find either wallpaper or fabric to finish the wall area above the judge’s rail height paneling.
The paneling is now white instead of limed woodtone but I still like the idea of blue up there.
I really wanted the Watercolor “Blue Drops” wallpaper which I could have for a small fortune. Maybe someday (when it’s discontinued).
Now I’m turning my thoughts to having some denim.
It would bridge the color gap between the “Tea Light” green conservatory and the “Waterbury Cream” kitchen.
It should also tie into the blue kitchen curtains, the blue of the conservatory ceiling, and the blue chairs in the living room.
I went to Home Depot this morning to get swatches of the denim palette because there are lots of choices.
Naturally there were no swatches available. After looking at the Ralph Lauren website I’m think I’m choosing between “Westport Blue” or “Blueprint” for the glaze.
The glaze can be painted over any color. My ceiling in the dining room is “Revere Pewter” and the adjacent living room walls are the same so perhaps something in this family (which includes “Edgecomb Gray”) should be the undercolor.
So what do you think of denim, pardner?
What’s your favorite color combination?
