Fifty shades of Blue/Grey/Green

I will be moving soon, not sure I mentioned this already πŸ˜‰ It seems to be all I talk about these days, so my apologies for rambling on about it.

I will receive the keys in two weeks time, so my interior design obsession is currently in full swing. I spend last weekend rambling through Ikea (what did people do before Ikea, you wonder… also the free coffee must rate as one of their best ideas ever) and am slowly figuring out what I need and want.

That lovely yellow chair is high on my wishlist, though I might chicken out and go for grey.Β I also love the idea of these retro multi colored chairs around a big wooden table in my kitchen. Now to find them somewhere for an affordable price.

My absolute obsession whenever I move or redecorate is paint colors. I am very difficult with colors and remember being so frustrated when moving into my last place until I discovered English paint brands like Farrow&Ball, Sanderson and Little Greene. There is something about the English heritage inspired colors that makes me fall in love every time.

I am currently debating on the exact shade of blue-gray I want on my living room walls. I think I want to go blue, but I am also still in love with their greenish blue shades including Mizzle which is on my walls right now. This will be tricky, but I am sure it will be quite clear once I see the samples in the living room.

The color in the top left, Oval Room Blue, is my current top choice for the bedroom, but I might still shift that to a greener hue depending on my choice in the living room.

I clearly have some way to go, but it is slowly coming together. I seem to be drawn to a modern interpretation of retro, but we will see how it ends up. Let me know what you think of the style and especially the colors!

Ik ga binnenkort verhuizen, had ik dat al verteld πŸ˜‰ Het lijkt wel alsof ik het alleen nog maar daar over heb, dus sorry voor mijn voortdurende gebrabbel.

Ik krijg over twee weken de sleutels, dus mijn obsessie met inrichten is op dit moment ten top. Ik heb afgelopen weekend lekker door Ikea gestruind (wat deden mensen voor Ikea, vraag je je dan af… en de gratis koffie is ongetwijfeld een van hun beste ideeΓ«n ooit) en ik kom er langzaam achter wat ik nodig heb en graag wil hebben.

Die mooie gele stoel staat hoog op de lijst, hoewel ik misschien mijn moed verlies en toch de grijze neem.Β Ik vind die retro rib buisstoelen in meerdere kleuren ook echt heel gaaf staan rond een grote houten tafel in mijn keuken. Nu moet ik ze nog vinden voor een betaalbare prijs.

Mijn echte obsessie elke keer dat ik verhuis of opnieuw decoreer is verfkleuren. Ik ben best moeilijk met kleuren en was de laatste keer zo gefrustreerd dat ik niet de juiste kleur on vinden. totdat ik Engelse merken zoals Farrow&Ball, Sanderson, en Little Greene ontdekte. Er is iets aan die Engels geinspireerde erfgoed kleuren waar ik elke keer weer verliefd op word.

Ik ben momenteel in dubio over de exacte kleur blauw-grijs voor de woonkamer. Ik denk dat ik richting blauw wil, maar ik ben ook nog steeds verliefd op de groenige tinten waaronder de kleur die ik nu in de woonkamer heb: Mizzle. Dit word lastig, maar ik denk dat het wel duidelijk word als ik de kleurstalen in de woonkamer ophoudt.

De kleur in de linkerbovenhoek, Oval Room Blue, is mijn huidige keuze voor de slaapkamer, maar ik kies misschien voor een groenere tint afhankelijk van mijn keuze in de woonkamer.

Ik heb duidelijk nog wel wat keuzes te maken, maar het komt langzaam bij elkaar. Ik neig echt naar een moderne interpretatie van retro, maar we zien wel wat het word. Laat me weten wat je vind van de stijl en vooral de kleuren!

    I like top light-light-blue-grey. I don’t like greenish shade as I stay now in apartment which has some shade of green bedroom. This color doesn’t feel cosy at all. I like green shade for some decor but not for walls.:) But it’s me:)

      That top one is very pretty right?!
      For me, it all depends on the green: I prefer the really old fashioned green with lots of blue and grey undertones. But you are right, some green is just hidious on the walls.

    Ooh, planning out a look for a new space is so much fun! I love those retro chairs…as for the paint colors, I’m personally partial to the blue one in the top center. Sooo pretty! I’m excited to see how it all turns out!

      I know, I am having way too much fun πŸ˜€
      The color choice will be a bit tricky, but I am sure it will resolve itself once I step into the room with my swatches.
      Hope you have a lovely weekend πŸ˜€

          Hmm I would have loved the red one, but that is no longer available 😦 Yellow might be a great substitute..we’ll see.
