Great job on the crown moulding. I will get to doing that in the future too.
The blue looks much better now.

i think you need to take more pictures and in different lighting conditions. the first pictures you took looked pretty bad. then, the next picture with the moulding and suddenly the room looks great!

i have found with my wife is that she has grand plans for decorating. then she does it. then she hates it. then she loves it, forever.

i think the problem is to have an ability to accept the change. don't be scared of change. its different, that's OK.

sleep on it a bit, relax, take a deep breath, grab a sandwich .. and then take a look at the blue again. you'll probably find that you begin to really like it.

remember, you DIY and learned some skillz along the way. that means you can always change it later if you find you truely don't like it. hey, it happens.. some times we picture it different than how it really turns out.

Yeah the white moulding really did the trick

I painted a wall at my last house bright red
Wife thought I was crazy, but the whole room was white
Turned out nice
