Thanks! The color is Sherwin Williams Aqueduct color SW 6758. I made the roman shades with sheers from target and added blackout drape material to them, then I followed these instructions:

Good luck!

What is the brand and name of the aqua paint color? I love the room. How did you make the Roman shade?

It looks really soft, cool, fresh, and delicate. It's a really nice space. Very relaxing.

I really have a weakness for pastel colors. And I love anything vintage, too. So pastels plus vintage? Truly lovely!
