The original color in the living room wasn't *that* bad. In most lights, it just looked like a neutral tan. But there's this weird tinge to in some lights that looks like baby poo after strained green peas. Or maybe a super old velvet couch left on the side of the road because you can't even sell it on Craigslist. Too drab.
Major shout out to Miss Amy Lam for helping me tackle this room last Friday. It was a lot bigger than I realized and we all know I'm not nearly tall enough for the high bits. Thank goodness my former roomie is a paint pro.
Here's my inspiration:
We went back to Benjamin Moore's Regal Matte line, using Storm. I think it's pretty funny that our living room is Storm and leads into our "clear skies" kitchen. We like sky color paint, I guess?
I was a little nervous about gray because it's a pretty dark color choice. But it ended up feeling calm and more subtle than I imagined. We plan on putting some thick white crown molding up and hanging some white roman shades. I think the contrast will help the room pop.
