“Sometimes it’s black or it’s white and there ain’t much more to say” – Daniel Shearin
Color is so difficult, especially grays. There are warm grays and cool grays and now there is greige. A gray can have a violet tone or a green tone or a beige tone (greige). You can find numerous articles and Pinterest pins about how to pick the right gray.
After many hours I have narrowed down my gray to two choices from Sherwin Williams, “Light French Gray” and “Requisite Gray”. On the wall they go, to look at in all kinds of light. I have a real fear of picking the wrong gray, I know, it’s kinda dumb but its the paint that will be in the living room and hallway.
I’m also picking colors for the bedrooms. The right blues and greens. The blue is “Rain” by Sherwin Williams. The greens I picked out were total disasters. Starting over with green. I won’t even go into what the kitchen color will be, thats a whole other post. I worry that the colors won’t go well together or have the same tone or hue. First world problems.
FYI, When writing this post, I realized that gray is also spelled grey. Spellcheck in WordPress does not like “greys”. When I looked it up, most sites stated that “grey” was British English and “gray” was American English. I use gray. What do you use? Do you have a favorite gray?
