{fresh paint in grey?}


We're moving! YAY! I'm so excited for the change, but the task ahead of us is also quite overwhilming. We have 1 1/2 weeks to downsize our lives from a current 3 bedroom 1 1/2 bath to a 1 bedroom, 1 bath. Some stuff is destined for storage, other things, the trash, and other things donantion. But...why focus on that, when I can focus on paint colors! :) I am afterall, going to be painting. No matter how I try to 'break free', I constantly come back to the grey color featured above. Oh, the decisions!

Have you ever been to apartmenttherapy.com? (my fav site) They have an amazing home on there that has every room painted the same grey - and it is fabulous. Do it! :) -Izzy-

Gray is the main color in my apartment. I knew I was going to do gray from the start! Are you going to be able to paint an apt? If so, I am so jealous!

Izzy - I love A.T!! Great ideas for sure. Read it all the time - even more so, now that we're downsizing!!

W - grey is definitely a perfect color! I'm trying to break out of my 'shell'. LOL, but it's my fave. And yes - we can do whatever we want! it's awesome!:)

It's funny, isn't it, how we go back to our favorites time and time again. But, when you find perfection, it's hard to switch up :)

Good luck with the move! I promise, if you take it one little step at a time, it'll go so quickly!

oh living room is a light gray color and it's been surprisingly difficult to work with (part of that is our big red couch). i wish i had gone a few shades darker.

christine - thanks for letting me know about light grey vs. dark grey! I've been playing around with different shades. We'll have to get settled and try out some swatches in the different light. {luckily our furniture is neutral!}
