Navy and White Powder Room and Painted Ceilings

Navy and white is a classic combination for a reason and I've always been attracted to the calming nature of deep dark blue and contrasting simple white.

You might remember that we added shiplap to our small powder room a few months ago.  And, despite knowing I wanted navy in this room, I somehow talked myself into doing something different and painted the shiplap a pluff muddy brown.  Have you ever done something like this and regretted it?  And, did you live with it or redo?

I'm sorry to say this isn't the first time I've done a redo just a few months later.  We once painted an entire condo Benjamin Moore Yellow Highlighter because I saw a swatch in a Pottery Barn catalog and figured if Pottery Barn recommended the color, it had to be beautiful.  Oops.  I will say, I've tested all paint colors using swatches ever since.

Anyway, this tiny room kept pleading to be repainted and this weekend, thanks in part to the Sherwin Williams 40% off all Paints sale, I gave in.

I stuck with almost all of the same art and other finishes.  How could I not love the copper towel and toilet tissue bars?  I did spring for a couple new hand towels from Target though - I love how they pop against the dark blue.

Paint colors are SW In the Navy in flat on the walls and SW Pure White in Semi Gloss on the shiplap and trim.

Also, since we were painting, I thought we'd go to extremes and take on two painting projects in one weekend.  It was supposed to rain all weekend.  It didn't.  The rest of the family was not thrilled about missing out on two perfectly good boat days.  Live and learn.

Anyway, my obsession with painted ceilings continues and the back hallway was the lucky room this time.

The color is SW Cay, flat, cut 50%.  It's a tad lighter than the porch ceiling on the other side of the pictured back door.

Buck loves it, by the way, he says he feels right at home.
