Why? Well, a lot of it has to do with the fact that we've been LOVING gray for a while. AND, we just had the stairs and entire upstairs' carpet redone in a gray shade!
|New Carpet: Martha Stewart Living Chester Isle in Flagstone; pics coming soon!|
|Color #1: This is the neutral beige - we're leaving it in the dining room, half bath and closet. It's a Sherwin Williams custom mix from previous owner - need to look it up! For now i'll call it Beige!|
- Color #3: One Color for a guest room and the new office/library downstairs! (will keep ceilings white)
- Color #4: One Color for the entryway, hallway, and kitchen/living area! (want to paint ceilings in entryway/hallway a color - maybe Amazing Gray below!)
Here's what we're looking at:
|Already Using: Benjamin Moore Smoke Embers (above in Beckett's Room)|
|Potential Color #4 Option 1: Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray - considering for entryway/hallway, etc.|
|Potential Color #4 Option 2: Benjamin Moore Whale Gray - considering for entryway/hallway, etc.|
Austin is getting samples of Chelsea Gray & Whale Gray today! Hopefully we'll like one of them and get the areas painted as early as next week - eeee! THEN, once everything is painted, we'll need to decide which of these 4 colors go best in the remaining rooms we're not painting (out master bedroom, our bathroom & the upstairs den/xBox room). Also, we're trying to decide if we want to leave the doors white - we painted the doors in the interior of Beckett's room gray and just LOVE them!
Q: Have a favorite paint color or brand? We love Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams! I've never had a favorite paint color, but after this exercise I feel like I'll have a few favorites! I initially went to Benjamin Moore because I kept seeing home decor pictures of Gray Horse and just LOVED it. Pottery Barn uses Benjamin Moore colors so it's fun to see what they paint with.
Q: How many paint colors are in your house? Right now we have too many shades of tan/brown and can't keep them straight. We had crown added to a few rooms a couple of months ago and we gave them the wrong touch up paint, so you can see all the touch up. Sigh! Yes ANOTHER reason I can't WAIT to paint!
