Boys’ Bedroom Paint Colors
A few weeks ago, I shared that I’m in the process of making over my boys’ bedroom and I asked you to guess which color palette you thought I was going to choose! Today I am sharing how I chose my boys’ bedroom paint colors and a helpful color palette creation tool.
With the help of the Sherwin-Williams Chip It! tool, I was easily able to settle on a fun yellow and blue color palette that I know my boys will love! Just look below at all of those gorgeous blue paint chips. How in the world did I narrow it down to the perfect one?
I’m so glad you asked! First I used photos from my Pinterest boards that inspired me and captured the feeling of the boys’ personalities. Next, I chipped each photo to see if any color themes emerged.
I am thrilled to see that Sherwin-Williams’s Loyal Blue and Rainstorm continually appear in the photos.
At first I was leaning toward the color Loyal Blue for the walls. After all, Emily Henderson recently posted her dining room makeover done in Sherwin-Williams Loyal Blue. I love the color online; however, once I saw the Rainstorm swatch in the store I just knew it was the one! Rainstorm paint color is moody and dark, yet sophisticated and with a touch more teal than Loyal Blue. I was sold!
Boys Bedroom Makeover Design Board
If you remember, the boys requested a science-bug-Star-Wars-dinosaur-nature-animal-superhero-inspired room. Although my design doesn’t hit every element of their request, it has their approval! I have already purchased the striped bedding from West Elm and the solar system mobile. I hope to make the giant letters in the upcoming weeks! Stay tuned for a full room reveal soon!
