On Thursday I posted some of the dilemmas we are having choosing a paint color for our front room.
Although paint isn't a crazy expensive update, repainting the same room over and over adds up.
And well, as much as my husband loves a DIY project, repainting isn't his fave.
*As an update to the previous post on Thursday, I forgot to mention that between the original gray and current grayish/blue we painted an off white. Big fail. The room doesn't get a ton of light, so the white looked dingy and dirty, like the original gray did.
So we spent the weekend looking at some inspiration online, making a list of colors we want to pick up samples of, and going back and forth on whether we want to go dark or a rich neutral.
In the end we felt like what was holding us back on making a final decision was being scared of painting it dark; and then going to sell one day and having the color be a issue.
But then we were like wait a minute.
Who's house is this?
Who lives here?
Whose actually buying the paint and doing the grunt work?
Gosh darn it, we are!
(Think Mighty Ducks pep talk.)
So we are going in the direction of a dark color.
We will still pick up a few neutrals just to cover our bases, but we are really feeling the dark side vibe.
Here are some inspiration pictures we found and love.
Since we pretty much literally have no furniture in that room, we feel that a dark neutral fits with our vision for the room. We're thinking lots of natural wood furniture, gray/white upholstery, and of course some great metallic and color thrown in.
I'm working on learning to make a design board (how do I not know how to do that yet?) so once I get that completely figured out I'll share. :)
