The answer to the previous post:
We chose both the first two shades.
The second shade, we picked for our living room — and saved the first shade for our bedroom! Looks good in the photo but in person, it looked a bit too dark but perfect for a moody, chill bedroom.
So we painted the living room. It turned out to be kind of a bluish gray. I can’t believe how a shade can look so different from a nice-sized swatch on the wall (and we painted that swatch on two different walls) to a FULL blown shade on ALL of the walls. It looked lighter, bluer, but we loved it and thus it stays – a bluish gray living room.
When I say “we” in the above sentence. I mean me and mom. Mom was here in Austin that week. Nick was away at a softball tournament so it was just me and mom laboring away and inhaling all that paint VOCs.
Mom attacked the ceiling line with a TINY brush and slowly and carefully cut in without tape. Wow. I wish I had a picture of her doing that hard work. But instead I have this corny photo of me with an alien-shaped head.
Now I’m looking at this picture – the gray in that photo is much darker than what the color is on my walls right now.
I am basking in blue-grayiness right now as I’m typing this. Full photo of the blue-grayiness coming soon.
And to tide you over till then, here are some plans for the living room:
Not everything will be purchased, but you get a general idea of where I want to go… (but the gray-black-purple-teal color scheme has been replaced with gray-black-GOLD-teal)
