Now the major question - what color. We currently have 90% of our home painted Sherwin Williams Ivoire.
So now it's down to what direction do I want to take it. The obviously choice is a gray neutral or "greige" color. I'm sure that's where I'll end up but I'm considering all sorts of things. Fortunately the furniture is generally neutral so I don't need to make any radical changes there. I may paint the dining room furniture. (Don't tell Handy Hubby). I also may add some wallpaper in the dining room to freshen it up further.
Here are some of my favorite colors currently in the running -
Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
|J. Hirsch Interiors|
But I'm a little worried about the slight green undertone. I am banishing green from my house purely out of boredom and no other reason.
Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray
|Young House Love|
But maybe a little too tan still and a little bit "not a color" - know what I mean?
Benjamin Moore Valley Forge Tan
|Martha O'Hara Interiors|
But maybe a little dark and possibly green. I think it would be amazing in my kitchen and family room but might be a little dark in our living room. Could be amazing in the family room with all the white trim. Hmmm...
Benjamin Moore Gray Owl
I also love this color. It looks really different in different lights and works well with white molding. It has so much going for it. Definitely a front runner.
I guess I need to pick up some paint samples soon!
