CENTURY Home Makeover: Bedroom

Benjamin Moore Color and Design experts gave this 1933 Québec City home a design overhaul, using CENTURY’s signature soft touch matte finish paint throughout. Here, the bedroom beckons in PARIAN Z1, a warm gray.

“The bedroom is such a personal space,” says Sophie Bergeron, of the Benjamin Moore Colour and Design team. “It’s so important to get the color just right to create the exact mood the homeowner wants. CENTURY is a great choice for bedrooms due to its soft touch tactility and its selection of 75 incredible, pre-mixed colours.”

PARIAN Z1 is a warm gray with a green undertone, a distinctive neutral colour for rooms with lots of natural light. The designer decided against accent colour combinations and strong accessories, adding, “PARIAN Z1 was all we needed to infuse warmth into the room.”

Sophie and her team chose a very light pattern for bedding and a painted cane headboard and bed frame, all of which contribute to the room’s glow.  Contemporary touches complement the room’s classical furnishings, including a circular glass side table and mod lamp. Over the elegant buffet, delicate frames and art featuring graceful flower pastel drawings pull the design’s airy ambiance through the room and balances the soft setting of the bed area.

Even the choice of the bedroom’s trim paint was strategically planned to optimize the room’s aesthetic: Sophie opted for off-white Café Suisse OC-45 in Benjamin Moore Aura® semi-gloss for the mouldings to organically highlight CENTURY’s soft touch matte finish on the CENTURY-painted walls.
