Even though we have been in our home now for 4 months, we have not had a chance to do ANY decorating. That means NOTHING. ZIP. ZILCH. I have been going through decorating ideas daily (and nightly). The only thing I know for sure is what color will I paint the walls. I went totally bold [turquoise] in our apartment for the last two years, and I loved it, but I am going for a different look in our house. Yes, I will for sure use bold colors, just not on the walls. I would like all of the artwork from our travels to pop out from subtle wall colors.
The problem? Which shade of gray?
I posted this picture way back in October as my inspiration. I am still loving these grey walls with the thick white moldings.
I wish I knew what this paint color was called and who makes it. If you have ever looked at grey paint swatches then you know there are many different undertones: purple, blue, yellow, green.Remember back in October when I painted a bunch samples on my wall? Well, I have been staring at them for 3 months now, but one never jumped out as "the one." So, yesterday I went to Home Depot and picked up Martha Stweart's Nimbus Cloud, which I read online is a "true gray."
After painting it on the wall, next to the 7 other samples, I knew I had found my color! Done and done! It is the top left square.
The paint has been purchased and we will start painting tomorrow! So exciting!
Pictures of both painting projects coming soon!!!
