Darker livingroom walls. Purple details.

After living in my house in Rosendal since 2012, the walls were in need of a new stroke of paint. They walls were light grey with a hint a yellow. I decided to go for a darker shade. I wanted a bit more atmosphere.

Tried two different colors. First I painted an small area with NCS S 3000. A pure grey. But the color seemed to go towards blue/ purple. So I had to add some yellow to it.

I chose NCS 3002-Y. I prefer Beckers Elegant Matt.

The darker shade did change the room. It became darker of course, but not too dark. I do have alot of windows, which helps! The colors change during the day making the atmosphere change too!

Suddenly white walls see so steril!

To finish the livingroom I added a little more purple! A perfect contrast. And I do love color. The purple chair is a new edition of the chair, earlier known as the Tivoli chair. This purple delight is now called Panton One. Color montparnasse. From the danish company Montana. Perfect with the Mhy Muuto lamp.

The picture…I painted it myself.

The funky stone was found on a island in the fjord of Oslo last weekend!
