The Perfect Gray (Hopefully)

So I finally decided on a gray for my walls. Yippee Skippee! I thought my mind was made up, but after living with the swatch I painted on the wall for quite some time, I decided that the original color I chose was too tanish. I want something that is a very light gray with a tint of blue in it. It's so hard to get that color right! I finally chose Benjamin Moore Titanium. Here's what it looks like.


And this is what it looks like on a wall.

I think I love it. I love it in all these pictures anyway. It's just so light and airy--the perfect blueish gray. I guess the true test is when I have it completely covering my walls. So that's the plan for tonight--painting. We'll see how much I get done. My helper bailed on me so we'll see if I have enough motivation/strength left in me at the end of the day to tackle this one on my own.

Here are some other pictures of blueish gray rooms that I either had filed away or just found inspiring. 














The Lennoxx

Oh and here's my other latest project: this campaign dresser. I got it for $25 off Craigslist and am trying to decide what color it should be. It'll be going in the boys' room. The first color that popped into my head was orange. Whatcha think? Sorry for crappy pic.




Here's a close-up of the hardware.


Brass is back, baby!

  2. Definitely go w/orange w/the campaign dresser - it'll look great w/the brass pulls!! Can't believe you got it for $25! Love the blue-grayish rooms you showcased - so serene and classic!! I hope the titanium color works for you!!
