This husband and wife — Marina and Jordan — had an entertainment space that was just a little too fun. As if the one extremely bright orange accent wall wasn’t enough, they also tried to peel off an old wall decal and did some serious damage to the paint, leaving unsightly drywall exposed. Luckily, host Ilana Becker was on the scene with paint expert Misty Yeomans to figure out the whole situation.
Yeomans was able to choose an appropriate paint color based on other aspects of the room — like the floor — which ultimately made the space feel more finished. She also recommended a Glidden primer to cover that unsightly drywall. Ultimately, the team really toned down the look of the room with a teal and gray palate, while also amplifying the room’s comfortable entertainment appeal with coordinating accent pillows.
