It’s starting. The era of bold, saturated color. I fell for Benjamin Moore’s Dragonfly as soon as I saw it. In an effort to step out of my comfort zone and go with my instincts, I decided to buy a gallon of Dragonfly, color matched in Glidden paint. Where is this going? I decided to test the water, um, paint in the master closet. Boring cream walls and shelving are a perfect starting point.
I started by painting the shelf supports with Wal Mart’s bright white exterior paint. Why? Three reasons. 1. It’s bright white, no need for color matching. 2. We already had it on hand from a few mailbox touch ups. 3. I hope exterior holds up to wear and tear better. Back to the fun paint. After slapping a coat of white up, I started with Dragonfly.
And I’m even more in love with it on the walls. It’s bold, but not too bright. Saturated, but not overwhelmingly dark. It’s blue, it’s green, and it’s lovely. Now I have to find time between packing and cleaning to finish what I started. I feel confident using this on the walls of the master bedroom, too. Happy camper, right here.
What do you think? Is Dragonfly the new peacock? I think we should start a trend. Ha.
