Summers are a lot busier in our house than any other season of the year. Besides the fact that we have family and friends who like coming over more often around this time of year (thanks to our swimming pool!), my husband and I seem also more inspired take on home projects – which (I confess) I get so excited about! Yep. I don’t know what it is about the summers, but this is how we roll! ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of home projects, I’m so excited to share with you the latest one my husband and I decided to tackle this Spring. I love making updates to our home: redecorating the rooms, freshening up wall colors, adding a few new decorative accessories here and there…

I know I’ve talked about updating our master bedroom this year and yes, we did and we couldn’t be any happier with the final results!

I’ll tell you, when it comes to sprucing up the look and feel of a room, there’s no better way to do it than with a fresh coat of paint!

I love the aqua/sea blue wall color in our master bedroom now. It goes perfectly with our rustic dark brown furniture and complements the blues, white, almond, and coral colors in the decor and bed sheets so well.

I wish I had a before photo of this room. But I can tell you, it’s nowhere near the beauty, comfort and warmth this room now evokes. I am so proud of what we did to it!

My husband and I wanted a simple, relaxed atmosphere so we opted for the Aqua Fiesta paint color by Olympic Paints. I love how everything turned out in this project! It really feels like we’re vacationing somewhere by the ocean when we’re in this room! ๐Ÿ™‚

Choosing our paint color was easy!

I know one of the toughest things to do when updating a space in your home especially when you want to change your wall color is picking a new paint color!

Well, here’s what my husband and I did: before we headed to Lowe’s, we used the Olympic® Paint Visualizer tool — a really neat way to see your very own room digitally transformed with your paint color choice! This tool really helped us get a better idea of the new look we wanted for our bedroom and saved us time as far as picking our paint color samples at Lowe’s. With this visualizer tool, you can find the color of your choice in the Olympic® Paints and Stains paint color palette, upload a photo of your room and then digitally paint your room!Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 10.08.03 PM

We liked three variations of blue paint colors from Olympic Paints so we decided to get paint samples (which were very affordable) so we can try them on our wall. We then painted a small section of the wall with all three colors side by side and that really helped us to decide on the final color: Aqua Fiesta. The whole process of choosing the right color was easier than we thought!

This is not the first time we used Olympic Paints in our home projects. We’ve loved and trusted this brand because we have always achieved quality results in the past and we know that they have a reputation for innovation and durability at an affordable price! Their paints and stains are engineered to endure and they are committed to empower you to create enduring beauty in your home.

Bedroom Inspiration

I was so inspired to transform our bedroom into the relaxed, beach cottage feel that it is now and this is the mood board I made before we eventually picked all the new decor, bed sheet set and other room accessories to go with the furniture and wall color. Isn’t this very close to what we’ve finally created? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great color schemes. I love the nautical vibes of this room.

  3. 05/03/2021 / 9:29 pm

    A very beautiful concept. Feels like bringing a vacation vibe to your own bedroom.

  4. 05/03/2021 / 6:58 pm

    Periodic updates are good for every room in the house. Most people tend to put things off for far too long. And yes, I have the same issue with people wanting to come over, thanks to our pool!

  5. 05/03/2021 / 2:20 pm

    That is a really pretty color. It does remind me of the beach. I also like the flock of birds on your wall as well@

    I literally had my mouth open the whole time I was viewing your photos. I mean for a person whose favorite color is blue this was a trip! I love how subtle and calming the colors are!

  7. 05/03/2021 / 11:17 am

    I love the color you chose! It really brings in the ocean vibe! Even that decor above the headboard looks fantastic!

    Such a great idea. I have some photos on 8×10 printed on board that I’d hang in there too. All are from the beach.

    You room turned out so beautifully. You did a really amazing job. I love the color. Olympic sounds like a great paint.

    That’s a lovely color for a bedroom, especially for those who like the ocean. I wonder if they do s good range of royal blues. That will be my bedroom color soon!

  11. 06/29/2016 / 9:24 pm

    Its amazing what a can of paint can do! Love the color you chose its so serene and chic. The pops of orange looks beautiful too!

    Very pretty! I live by the ocean and may use a few of your ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. 06/28/2016 / 2:48 pm

    Nice paint color you choose! I need to look into that paint digital visualizer as I am in the middle of purchasing a home and will have to decorate before we move in. I am totally lost on which colors I want to use for the house.

  16. 06/28/2016 / 2:45 pm

    That color is beautiful! I ave a light blue bedroom wall color and it feels so calming. I am all about the coastal decor so this is perfection to me!

  17. 06/28/2016 / 12:58 pm

    Your bedroom looks absolutely beautiful! I love how it turned out! We are actually working on redoing our living room a bit and can’t paint because we live in an apartment but are updating the decor and making it a nice place for the whole family to spend time.

  18. 06/28/2016 / 11:55 am

    Your color looks great! We always shop at Lowes for our paint.

  19. 06/28/2016 / 9:31 am

    Your bedroom looks amazing!!! I love the flock of birds decoration above your bed!!! So cute!

  20. 06/28/2016 / 4:11 am

    The paint color is beautiful. Our bedroom is also blue, but I love your blue. The decor pieces are lovely too!

  21. 06/28/2016 / 2:35 am

    Your room is just beautiful! I love the wall color – it’s so serene!

  22. 06/28/2016 / 1:47 am

    I’m loving this color scheme, and the birds over the bed. Beautiful!

  23. 06/28/2016 / 1:34 am

    I love the look! My home looks beachy too. It’s so relaxing and inviting. You did a great job on the makeover.

  24. 06/28/2016 / 12:06 am

    I love everything about this. I’m no designer but I’m a real estate photographer so I see a lot of master bedrooms. This is so gorgeous. We are due for some painting in our house soon and I will really take this into account! Gorgeous colors.

  25. 06/27/2016 / 10:50 pm

    I just love those beautiful and peaceful colors! That blue is the perfect accompaniment with your embellishments – and I love the coral, too!

  26. 06/27/2016 / 10:28 pm

    What a beautiful color! Your bedroom looks great! We live near the ocean, and I’m thinking we may have to do the same thing!

  27. 06/27/2016 / 8:51 pm

    I am a big fan of paint also. Your room looks really pretty. The room visualizer tool is great!

  28. 06/27/2016 / 8:26 pm

    What a peaceful color, i love it! And I love the ocean theme.

  29. 06/27/2016 / 8:17 pm

    That was my whole thing when I decorated this room. I wanted it to be beachy/cottage-feel but not overly done. I’m the simplistic kind when it comes to decorating ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. 06/27/2016 / 7:55 pm

    This color is so crisp and beautiful! I love it. I’m a succor for nautical/beachy rooms. I’ve never used Lowe’s paints but we are in the SLOW process of having the house pained. Maybe I should try them!

    • 06/27/2016 / 8:15 pm

      I love nautical/beachy scenes too.. and the colors are so cool yet, they evoke warm feelings at the same time! Thanks for stopping by here today! ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. 06/27/2016 / 7:49 pm

    Wow! Your bedroom looks great! That would be a room I’d be excited to go to sleep in every night. Our room is so boring, I pay no time in there other than to sleep.

    • 06/27/2016 / 8:14 pm

      This was a boring bedroom for 3 straight years too and this year, we said, “We are doing our master bedroom this year! No excuses!” lol
