Valentine’s Day is just a short time away and I’m already feeling love in the air. Apart from the special day, the weather itself plays an important role in making it even better time for the love birds to show how much they care for their partners with romantic gestures. Ideas are endless for making Valentine’s day a meaningful moment.
You may choose to gift designer jewelry, send floral bouquets, book a movie date or plan a romantic vacation to find your love in solace.
I am a Software Engineer, so not much into romantic things. On the other hands, I was a bit tight on my budget right before Valentine’s month since we had planned to get our house painted. Being out of funds made it even difficult for me to plan something special for my wife on the most special day of year. But it was only until I spoke to Berger Paints. And the next day, I had an Berger Express Painting Executive available at my doorstep for expert advice.
I and my beloved wife shared our ideas of wall painting for the year, but since she preferred to keep my choice on top priority, she only agreed with colour shades that I selected. The executive was very much helpful so I chose to share everything with him regarding my ideas for making this Valentine’s day special for my beloved and he suggested something that took away all my worries.
“Why don’t you paint your house walls with colours that are favourite of your wife? It will make her feel special and admired, just like she is keeping all what you like on top priority,” he said.
And yes, it was a great suggestion!
He displayed a catalogue of wall paint shades and I found a very impressive range there. They had all the colour shades that my wife had always thought of.
For Bedroom – Sea Holly & Summer Town
My wife loves bright and neutral colours. She always wanted to paint her room walls with a great combination of her preferred colours. And the best combination I was suggested was of “Sea Holly (5T0301) and Summer Town (2P0682)”. Sea Holly is a dark colour (located between blue and purple), so it went great with Summer Town.
And since I was looking for something special to surprise her, the expert suggested me to go with a unique kind of paint for my bedroom walls. Berger Paints Silk Glamor was the perfect fit as it made my room walls looking luxurious and as smooth as silk. The executive took very good care of the overall painting process as I wanted my bedroom walls look perfect. They first cleaned the wall and removed previous coat of paint and then applied appropriate coating of putty for a smoother finish and the final result was great.
Thanks to its Crystal Reflective Technology, walls in my room got an ultra-smooth finish. One wall of my room was painted with Sea Holly while other three with lighter shade and Silk Glamor gave the darker wall a metallic shimmer effect with gold and silver bases.
For Kids’ Room – Pleasant Pink & Robin’s Egg
Pink is her all-time favourite colour and since it was about my kids’ room, I went with the colour combination suggested by the executive. Pleasant Pink (1P0498), very light shade that falls between red and orange, with Robin’s Egg (5P0142) which came from Blue colour. I was believing him with blind eyes as he had already executed multiple projects in the past with similar requirements so I could trust him with his options.
I was initially concerned about using pink shade in my kids’ room because I was worries that the paint would get dirty and look shabby as my kids have those ultra-artistic skills. As a solution, I was recommended to go with a washable paint for wall with Berger Easy Clean Fresh. It seemed just the right decision as cleaning the walls is very easy with this paint and this product has an odour-absorption capability which he explained would keep the room fresh and it was a perfect combination for my kids room.
For Kitchen – Steam Bath
We wanted our kitchen to be looking spacious and since we already have modular attachments in Red Colour, so Steam Bath (8P2665) served of purpose of making the kitchen looking bigger and better. Again the choice was inspired the attraction of my beloved for light and neutral colours.
All was settled down and I kept it a secret from my family because I wanted to make it a surprise for her. I cooked up a story of visiting on a week-long business trip and suggested my family to visit wife’s parental house that is also located in the same city.
Berger Express Painting Team did a great job and completed everything on time. And when she entered the house, it was a great surprise to see that her bedroom, kids’ room and kitchen were painted with colours that she always wanted in her house. And the expressions on her face was priceless when she touched the walls of our bedroom and her reaction was amplified when, one by one she explored the other rooms as well. A combination of Berger Silk Glamor and Berger Easy Clean Fresh worked wonders for me. My bedroom walls really felt like silk to her and using the washable paint in hindsight was a great decision as the rooms in the initial couple of months were filled with a fragrance which created a sensation of Freshness inside our homes.
Before you paint your house, I would suggest a consultation session from Berger Paints. They have just the right products and suggestions on colour combinations to make your walls look beautiful just the way you like and makes your home feel smooth as silk while bringing in a breath of Fresh Air.
