"Guest Room" Blue

So, last summer I promised to show pictures of my newly painted guest room. Annnd, things got busy ... lots of house guests ... lots of shows ... lots of work. Anyway, I forgot. Over the weekend, one of my blogging buddies ask me for the name of the color.

It isn't really called "Guest Room Blue".
It's Martha Stewart, Sea Spray Blue, #MS261!


I'm sorry that the pictures don't really give you a good idea of the color, but it really is that wonderful shade of light, robin's egg blue. Not too turquoise, not too baby-boy blue - - just like Goldilocks' bed - just right! Unfortunately, I didn't find it on the first try. This was, I think, my third try. So, I have lots of little tester colors for projects! The good part was that I didn't do any glazing. I liked it "as is".
I know this is post is about 6 months late, but maybe it's just in time for spring home improvement projects.
I would like to thank everyone that offered paint color mixes and brands. You guys are great! Good luck and happy painting! M.

Love the look of your guestroom. The blue is relaxing. I love some of Martha Stewart's colors. My kitchen is one of her 'old' yellows and I can't bear the thought of redoing it. It's such a sunny but soft color. Just right. Yours looks perfect for your room. Thanks for sharing it with us. ~Adrienne~

Hi Martha...Love your guest room...so charming and quaint. We both must be in the reno mood...although you finished before me. I am using a blue too...not Martha's though. I used Martha the last time around. Now I am using Debbie Travis.

Love your little mannequins in the previous post. Dress forms have always intrigued me as my mother was a model many years ago.

Have a wonderful week
Hugs, Nancy
