Colorblocking my walls

… on the agenda today for my guest room.  

modern bedroom

But im trying to come up with an interesting way to do it.


and i’m strangely attracted to the diagonal:

// pink and yellow colorblock

My headboard is begin upholstered right now in this fabric:

and my walls are going to be these two colors:


Valspar ‘Four Leaf Clover’ and ‘Deep Sea Diving':

You’ll see in about 10 days.  Follow me on instagram for progress snapshots:  emhenderson is my username.  



  1. Holy moly – that headboard fabric is to die for. I ADORE hot pink – and so does my man. Sometimes we call it "Mangenta" because it can go either way. :)

  2. Sounds like it's going to be a fun room. :)

  3. That fabric is such a great find. I can't wait to see the finished project. It will be so funky and unique. As a side note, Deep Sea Diving is a stunning color.

    Ooooh I love that dark blue color blocking around the doorway!!! it looks architectural. I may have to do that.

    That navy unframed doorway is the bee's knees. Can't wait to see where you land!

    I can't wait to see the finished result! Any chance you can post your progress photos on facebook or something too? You know, for those of us in the stone age who don't have instagram?
