CIL Designer Grey Is The Perfect Master Bedroom Paint Color #CILPaints
I am so excited to share the beginning of my master bedroom makeover with these before and after photos. It’s not complete, but I have picked out the master bedroom paint color and I love it. If you haven’t painted with CIL Duo Designer Grey, you need to check this out.

From the moment I saw our master bedroom in the home tour while we were shopping for houses, I knew what I would do with it: neutral padded headboard, white linens and duvet cover, mirrored nightstands and the perfect shade of grey. So far I have 2/5 crossed off my list, I found a great deal on a duvet and duvet cover and painted the walls with CIL DUO in Designer Grey.
I wanted a neutral grey that wasn’t cool or warm. I didn’t want a grey that turned blue or green, which isn’t the easier shade to find. I walked out of the Home Depot with a handful of paint swatches and started to decide the moment I walked into the natural light.
At the time of deciding, I didn’t have possession of my house yet. I wasn’t able to take a sample or even hold the swatch up in the light that my future master bedroom received, so I took a gamble and went with my instincts told me. Designer Grey made the cut.
I was choosing between Touch of Grey and Designer Grey. I opted for Designer Grey for the master bedroom paint color but since I loved Touch of Grey, I grabbed a can of that too for the bathroom. Unforeseen circumstances have come up with the bathroom and I have yet to paint it, but I will share my master bathroom reveal as soon as I can.
Designer Grey is the perfect master bedroom paint. I wanted a warm grey but not too warm. There are not undertones, it’s not muddy, it’s just perfect. If I could use one word to describe Designer Grey in my master bedroom it would be tranquil, which is what a master bedroom should be. Since I have painted this room, I have slept like a baby. Have a mentioned that I love this paint color yet?
CIL Duo is a paint and primer in one, and that means less painting and less money spent. Instead of a coat of primer (plus the additional expense) and two coats of paint, using the CIL Duo line cuts out the primer stage. I was grateful for that as I knew I had a lot of renovations ahead of me and the less I had to work, the better.
Master Bedroom Paint | Before and Afters:
I am absolutely in love with this paint choice, my husband and I both are. Seeing it in person is unreal, it looks like a totally different room. The power of paint is amazing.
Now that the manual labour is done, I have to decorate it. The plan is a padded headboard in a beige color, a few throw pillows and coverlet, mirror nightstands, drapes (which are on order) and a few decorative pieces for the walls and dressers.
