I’ve been getting a lot of emails and comments about that one thing that can make us cheer or make us cry.
Our current home has a lot of tan in paint and furniture. But, I adore the blue and green rooms in our house the most. So, in the new house, I’m leaning more towards cooler tones of grays and blues. But, I want to keep the house from being too cold, so I’m looking for warmer tones. So far, I’m pleased with the results.
So, here’s my color plan for the house (so far).
Living room, entry and hallway – Martha Stewart Bedford Gray (MSL246)
Kitchen, master bedroom and closet – Restoration Hardware Silver Sage
(I also used this color in our current kitchen)
Front bedroom – Sherwin Williams Ellie Gray (SW 7650)
Trim – Basic Behr Premium Ultra White (off-the-shelf)
As you see, I’m leaning towards warm gray in the main living areas. I had so many great suggestions for paint colors a few weeks ago. And, I went through every one and narrowed it down to my favorites, with a photo of each. (Don’t you love the Internet?)
And here’s the narrowed list of greiges that you provided to me two weeks ago, with an inspiration photo of each:
