I love the color gray! This has been a trend in decor for quite a while now, and I have been dying to use it. Since moving into our house, I have been collecting paint swatches.
The problem is, which gray shall I choose? I thought I could just pick the "perfect gray", but the more I looked at swatches, the more confused I was. I would pick one color and the second I put it next to another "gray" it would turn blue, green, or purple. I have gone to buy the paint several times and walked out with nothing but more swatches.
I guess I didn't realize the complexity of the color gray.
I thought the best thing to do would be to buy the little testers and see which I like best on my wall at different times with different lighting. I ended up with these 5 on my wall:
Woodsmoke - Eddie Bauer
Silver Threads- Olympic
Dolphin - Martha Stewart
Chinchilla - Martha Stewart
Driftwood Gray - Martha Stewart
Natural Gray - BEHR
Guess what? After all that, it's still a difficult decision. Here they are on a different wall with different light.
Believe it or not, Ernesto has started putting up customers' xmas lights already and will be working everyday until mid-December. I guess there is no rush to decide on paint colors now is there? Maybe if I live with the painted samples for a month Ill be able to make a more definitive decision.
Have any of you painted a room gray? What was the color and are you happy with it?
