Home Improvements

Okay yes I am well aware this is a wedding blog...but decorating has been the focus on most of my time lately. Since I know everyone loves to see how a paint color actually looks on the wall, I thought I'd share an interesting paint color I found recently - Benjamin Moore Crystalline, a greenish, grayish blue that I love! Check it out in action in our revamped TV room.


- Crate & Barrel Violin Lamp

- Restoration Hardware Luxury Plush Throw

- West Elm Envelope Silk Pillow Covers

- West Elm Grass Cloth Storage Cubes

- Pottery Barn Valencia Side Table


  1. Beautiful decorating...we are also thinking of using Crystalline in our kitchen...Just wondering, now that it has been a month, do you still love it?

  2. Hi Kelcy - I do still love it today! Crystalline is such a soothing spa like color...great with pure white trim. On my walls appears as a blue/green with a touch of gray. You might also check out Sherwin Williams Rainwashed which is also drop dead gorgeous (I'm thinking of painting that in the office).

  3. Thank you for your response! I'm also looking at Benjamin Moore "In Your Eyes"...a much lighter color, but the splotch on my wall looks very bright and spa like also:)

  4. Ohhh I just looked up "In Your Eyes" and that color also looks beautiful - a nice bright clear blue...very zen! Best advice I can give is to leave 3 potential shades up in the room for at least 24 hours and observe in different light. Odds are one shade will speak to you. I know that sounds so lame but it works:)
