Master bedroom paint

It took us 1 week and a zillion pint samples to get to the perfect nursery color. I refuse to do the same
For the master bedroom. What color does everyone have?? Pics would be helpful.

We chose a gray but I am afraid it will look like a hospital

I've never seen a gray hospital room so I think you're good.

What color did you choose for the nursery?

A light gray with glitter. Paint is from restoration hardware as well as the glitter. The store mixed 12 packs per gallon of paint. We are so screwed lol.

Our master in Brooklyn was BM Sidewalk Gray with BM Dior Gray as an accent wall. This time around we wanted something lighter and more soothing so went with BM First Snowfall.

Glitter paint?? Where was this when I pained my DD's nursery?

Might have to copy you when we move to New Ro ourselves.

It's reg paint and they also sell packs of glitter you mix in. It looks amazing. I hope doing 4 walls won't be overkill lol

We did our BR in BM Arctic Grey with BM Approaching Storm (deep purple) as the accent wall behind our bed. I also have BM Stonington Grey in my office and that is a really great grey as well.

We have a glitter paint on one wall in our LR and one wall in our Foyer. The adjacent walls kind of off set it with a similar shade but lighter.

If it's not too late; I probably wouldn't do all 4 walls with the glitter. I would two with; and the other two without. Maybe choose a color a few shades lighter or a little darker than what you have.

And if you haven't started it already; be prepared. It comes out thick. Ours did anyway. But this was also 7 years ago. I love it though.

Re: Master bedroom paint

Why not all four? It will be subtle and then I might do 1 or 2 walls more sparkly by taking a wet rag and going over the wall when the paint it dry. The difference is insane!

It's reg paint where we are adding their glitter dust so we can control how blingy it is.


This is for the nursery not our bedroom

Above you said the guy put in 12 packets in one can of paint; so that is why I thought it would've been too much for a Master. I actually thought this was for your Master ......so NM.

Oh DH would never agree to glitter in the master bedroom. I asked him to do the squire above the fire place which will probably covered with a TV at some point and he said no a few times until he gave in. Haha

12 hours and a gazillion paint samples and I can't find a gray that's dark enough to have a contract with the molding but light enough where it isn't too gray. Same issue with the foyer. And dining room. I'm a

I had that issue and found the perfect grey. I think it's the home depot ultra premium brand though, not BM. (by the way, it works just as well as BM)
I don't recall the name off hand but when i go home later I can find the can
It was not too dark and not too light at all for the room we did.
I love it

I think I found it on an old thread I posted on.

It's the Behr Ultra Premium Plus in Cathedral Grey.
Maybe give that one a look

Did you try the Premium Plus though as a sample? I agree that normal Behr paint is not the same but I felt the new Ultra Premium or whatever it is, the priciest one, was pretty damn close to BM
