I spend more time in my home office space than practically any other room in the house. As a busy work from home mama, I need to be comfortable in the space where I do business. I’ve been less than thrilled with the color of the wall that my desk is on for a while now, so when we were given the opportunity to partner with Ace for their 31 Days of Color program, I knew just the wall I was going to paint! The only question was which color was I going to choose for it?
I wasn’t up for repainting the entire living room that my home office nook is in, so I decided to just work with one accent wall. As such, I needed a shade that would go with the room’s existing color which I would describe as a light chocolatey brown. I also wanted a paint color that would brighten up the space a bit. We don’t have a ton of natural light in that room, so my office area has a somewhat dark feel, even during the daytime. Here’s a peek at my little nook after I moved out my furniture, but before the painting festivities commenced.
I ended up settling on a very subtle peach colored hue called Apricot Froth. After a visit to the oh so fabulous Ace Paint Studio for my color of choice, I was ready to get to work on my revamped home office! All I had to do was roll on two coats of that lovely Apricot Froth and my office looked instantly updated! I didn’t even have to use a primer...That’s how great this Valspar paint is. I’m thrilled with how lovely the color looks with my shabby chic furniture and Parisian wall art. I can’t wait to get to work!
Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.
