We’re getting very near to the big reveal of Grady’s bedroom at The Shack. I’ve already shared some of the furniture and it’s placement, the window treatment fabrics, and the bedding. Now it’s time to talk paint colors.
I definitely want to keep this room feeling bright. It’s not a large space, and there’s only one window in the room. Plus, now that we’ve taken the nasty ceiling fan down, there’s no overhead lighting either. But I do want to inject a little oomph into the color scheme. So I decided I’d like to use an accent wall. Accent walls are great for creating a focal point and using strong color without committing to all four walls. Since the bed will placed on the right hand wall, I definitely want to make a statement to draw you into the room. I’m thinking a board and batten wall, like these examples I found on Pinterest:

I’ve decided to paint the ceiling white, and three of the walls a very pale warm grey called Simple White by Sherwin Williams (SW7021) which I’ve already used in some other parts of The Shack. The Board & Batten accent wall will be a very bold blue called Down Pour by Sherwin Williams (SW6516). It’s bright and vibrant, but very masculine and bold.
I think these colors are the perfect choice for Grady’s teen bedroom at The Shack. Next time I’ll share the process that went into installing the Board & Batten. Once that’s done and the walls are painted, we’ll be ready to move the furniture into place and it’ll be time to share the finished space!! I can’t wait.
There’s still a lot more to share with you, so I hope you’ll stick around as I post the before and afters in our little Poconos mountain house. Until then, make sure to like Robinson Interiors on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, and DO stay tuned for future updates on The Shack!
