Guest Bedroom Makeover: Part 1 (New Paint Color)

Last week Tal and I crossed off another item on our list of 2016 House Goals.
 We painted our guest bedroom! 

For the last month, our guest bedroom has been covered in plastic and bed sheets while Tal spray painted our doors. Tal and I decided to repaint the walls and trim since the bedroom was already prepped for painting:

Our new paint color is a light blue-gray that nicely complements the blue paisley shams on the guest bed. (We have the same paint color in our formal dining room.) The pillow shams are my inspiration for the room's color scheme of light blue, navy, yellow, and white. Over the next few months, I'm looking forward to creating a cozy place for our guests by hanging curtains and wall decor, as well as by adding a headboard and a chair. I'm excited to get started!
