As much as I would love and try to be a person that can have a "decor eye" (you know the person that takes a BLAH room and turns it into a tada room with what seems to be little effort) well sadly enough I know I will just never be one of them.
So yellow is out. I want the room to fill bright and roomy but also restful so red was not going to work for the walls. So we were left with girly colors....OUT and Green, gray, or white. I think adding green into all those colors would make the room shout so I threw it out. I didn't really consider white so gray with blue in it seemed perfect. I picked a gray, got a sample pot and painted it on the wall and got this:
That is a FLAT paint. It is just SO bright of a color it appears to be Shiny and VERY BLUE. The color was called Light French GRAY, I honestly see no gray in it now it is on the wall. SIGH. (All you talented people with an eye for design probably are laughing at me right now.) So I spent the next two days straight researching grays. Can I say WOW! There are TONS of Grays and TONS of opinions (most of them opposing each other) on which one is best and what undertones they have. Ughhhh. I have poured over so many gray swatches I honestly am at a point that I'm not sure if I want gray on the walls anymore. Besides I live in the NW which is grey all the time so maybe my idea to do gray is bad?
