THANK YOU, PANTONE!!! Thank you, thank you, for giving us Greenery this year! Talk about a much-needed lift! 15-0343 Greenery. What a fresh, optimistic color! Cause for celebration! A grassy green with enough lime to give it some energy and playfulness. Greenery is a straightforward, honest green that wants the best for all of us. It turns […]
I feel like I’m seeing green and gray (aka grey) everywhere! From excellent designers… In catalogs… Everywhere! I smell a trend. I wasn’t sure what I thought of the green/gray combo at first. But it’s grown on me. There may be a green and gray room in bossy color’s future sooner rather than later. What […]
Thanks, Uncle Jimmy! Just in time for Christmas, he painted our dining room radiator!
Remember when we talked about radiators? Well, I went to the paint store and bought this Modern Masters metallic paint….
Not so long ago, I spoke with you about “art walls.” We started with WHAT to Hang, then moved on to how to FRAME it, and then how to HANG it.
Seems I got one of my clients all riled up.
There’s a gigantic blank wall in her cheerful gray dining room….
It looks beige in the color wheel. I have used this color as beige before. It’s pretty.
But I never thought of Benjamin Moore’s AC-31 Hot Spring Stones as gray.
Nonetheless, eternal optimist that I am, I was hoping against hope that somehow, in my south-facing-but-still-doesn’t-get-a-ton-of-light-thanks-to-the-porch-roof dining room that it would read as a warm gray, not beige….
If ever there were a case to be made for putting giant swatches of actual paint on the walls before making a color decision, this is it.
With many, MANY thanks to all of the Gentle Readers who gave me their thoughts and suggestions, we’re working with these finalists for my dining room….
Now that I have a living room I LOVE – or almost love: Mitchell Gold’s Mona Sofette is on its way, and someday I’ll eradicate the orange on those darn chairs –
I have to repaint the dining room.
I know, I know. WHERE DOES IT ALL END?? Well, I’ve assured my long-suffering husband that it ends after the DR is painted. But I might have been lying.
Anyway, you can see the problem, looking from one room into the other….
