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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Hello Lauren,

    I love your use of various gray trims with white walls. Do you use the same white walls throughout? Could you share what they are and what colors you paired together (walls and trims.)

    We are painting a light filled condo (once a school with) with 12′ ceilings and I would like a paint scheme, which is subtle, sophisticated and enhances the space.

    Thank you SO much!

  2. I love the offset window. Itโ€™s perfect next to a bed and doesnโ€™t get covered up by a headboard.
    Beautiful work!
