And The New Paint Color Is..........

So as I mentioned in my last blog post, I am starting off the  new year with a new project. I am giving my living room an overdue makeover. These walls haven't been painted since I bought the house in 2006. Back then I was into warm colors with a rustic vibe. The red/yellow/green pallet was popular and that is the direction I went as I decorated my new home.

The living room was painted Behr Quiet Veranda and trim in Polar Bear.

I loved having a yellow living room. It was such a lively color and looked so warm and inviting in the evening light but my tastes have changed and I began to grow tired of it.  

So after countless hours at the paint store looking over swatches, and after days upon days searching online I decided I wanted to go to a warm greige or gray color.

I narrowed it down to two colors:

Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray (on left)
and Gray Owl (on right)

In the end I decided on Benjamin Moore Gray Owl.

Here you can see the yellow compared to the gray.

Gray Owl is such a popular color so I was afraid of going along with the herd on this one but it looks so fresh and pretty with all my white trim.

In the evening it looks a little more blue than what I wanted but I think it has to do with my lighting and color of my accent furniture.

I am changing up almost everything in this room so I can't wait to get done painting and start my craft and décor projects.

Benjamin Moore Gray Owl is a versatile color that is blue/gray/green and changes with the light. If you're looking for a color that goes well in almost any room, this is it!

I have a few more spots to touch up and then its time to move on to cleaning and putting everything back know, the fun stuff! ......Decorating! :)


P.S. I am now posting on IG and Twitter and welcome you to join me over there as well.
