Gray Trim Paint Update in the Guest Bedroom

Progress is cause for a party, y’all!

The guest bedroom might still need a lot of love, but the paint situation is looking a whoooole lot better.

‘Memba dis?

Look out spackled beige walls and yellowy peeling trim. There’s a new sheriff in town…

Earlier this week, I shared all of the inspirations that convinced me this white wall / gray trim combo needed to happen.

So while I hung out with the kiddos, Robert jumped in here to paint the walls Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee and the trim Benjamin Moore Winter Gates.

They’re two of our go-to paint colors since we have Swiss Coffee in our living room and kitchen downstairs and we rocked the Winter Gates color on our bathroom cabinets at our old house.

It’s already so much better from the before.

Eventually, we plan to rip out this carpet to restore the original hardwood floors underneath (eep!), but since that’s not in the budget right now, we’re holding off for a bit.

Next steps will be hanging up a full wall of drapes to work around that off-centered window and hauling in a gorgeous secondhand cane headboard that I found. It’s SO good!

None of it is much to look at now, but it will be. 😉

  1. Looks great! I’ve been considering painting the trim in our den – but I’m not sure what to do with the other side of the door/trim that faces into the hallway – I’m assuming you only painted the door side that faces into the guest bedroom gray, right? I’m just curious how to proceed – would love to see a pic of what it looks like with the door open if it’s a different color…thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Hi! Yes, we kept the hall side of the door the Wrought Iron. It looks nice with the door open as the other doors through the hall match the hall side. We also followed this same technique in our nursery.
