As we are about to kick off painting the new Casa, I’ve narrowed down the gray colors I want to use throughout the house. In our last home, we used Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray in the majority of the house and Dovetail in the dining room. I LOVED it so much but I want the new colors to have two things: 1) I want the main color through out to be lighter because our natural light is not as bright as the last space and 2) I want a bit more of a dramatic contrast between grays. That said, I’ve decided on some similar colors that really picked up the gorgeous grays that are running all through the granite we just installed in the kitchen: Repose Gray and Gauntlet Gray. Repose Gray is one shade up from Mindful Gray and Gauntlet Gray is one shade deeper than Dovetail. The darker colors will anchor the living room on either side, defining the space while the lighter will bring in the much needed light.
In searching for gorgeous gray inspiration, I found myself constantly drawn the one more color to throw into the mix.
I am completely charmed by the way this combination makes me feel and while I had turquoise as an accent color in mind, I think this may be more the direction we’re heading. I’m leaning more towards an emerald green rather than the lighter lime shade but then again…
What do you think?
