I’m so excited to share my master bedroom decor refresh! I added a touch of drama to my master bedroom decor with a moody accent wall in my own custom color that I mixed MYSELF to help kick off Ace Hardware’s Neighborhood Paint Party this Saturday!
This post is sponsored by Ace Hardware. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
A few months ago, I chose our master bedroom decor for our new house and started decorating! I shared that makeover with you back in November on our Master Bedroom Reveal. I wanted to keep my same bedding, nightstands and dresser but wanted to refresh our master bedroom decor from our master bedroom at our old house. Our old house had a dusty blue shiplap wall and I absolutely loved it but I wanted something different in our new house.

Phase 1: Master Bedroom Decor
I really love this space but I went back and forth about a million times deciding if I should do an accent wall or not. I brainstormed accent wall ideas for weeks. Do I paint one focal wall? All of the walls? Wallpaper? Wainscoting? I couldn’t decide. I painted it white and let the bed and master bedroom decor be the stars.
Fast forward to Ace Hardware inviting me to create my own custom paint color as a preview of their Color of the Year contest and biggest paint sale of the year! I got so excited and knew exactly what I wanted to create! Time to give this accent wall a bold punch of color!
This weekend, I visited my local Ace Hardware and picked up some paint samples to create my own custom color, mixing until I found the perfect shade of blue! It was really fun- I felt like a little kid in art class! I decided I either wanted a deep navy with a hint of teal or I wanted a deep emerald green. This is also a sneak peek of what you’ll get to experience in store at participating Ace’s Neighborhood Paint Party on the 24th – you have to try it!
Meet my custom color
I mixed a few samples and fell in love with the dark navy + teal combination. I named my color “Playful Peacock”. I totally think it fits the color perfectly.
I filled out the Color of the Year form my local Ace provided to me and took my color sample back to Ace Hardware, The helpful Ace associates mixed up a couple gallons of my custom paint color in their Clark+Kensington Paint right on-site. They were super helpful throughout the whole process! I chose a flat finish so that my wall had a matte (not shiny) sheen.
I painted two coats of my new custom color “Playful Peacock” and I sat on the bed watching the paint dry in awe. I was seriously thinking, “how on Earth did I mix this color myself? It’s so cool!” It is honestly such a beautiful color!
I think it pairs perfectly with my floral pillows and I love this color paired with my pink velvet pillows too. Navy/Teal + Blush pink is always a good choice!
I love that it adds some depth to the space and actually accentuates the vaulted ceiling that wasn’t as obvious when the wall was white. I love that my rose gold canopy bed and white nightstands just pop off the newly painted accent wall.
