So funny to read this post by the Nester on choosing the perfect paint color. Which is mostly a post about just choosing something and going for it.
We are finally moving out of our rental and into a house. Most of the walls are currently muddy brown and green. The rec room is a very aggressive dark purple. So, before we move in we decided to paint.
Now, all I have to do is narrow down the 5 million paint colors at Home Depot to what we need. So, naturally, I turned to the only place that could overwhelm me more: the internet.
I had been looking at this pin from Martha Stewart for a long time and it seemed like a great jumping off point.
I do really like this palette all together, but individually I wasn't sure if the colors worked for me. I even bought a few samples and tried them out. I was still wracked with indecision. Back to pinterest I went.
Our first thought had been plain white walls for the living room and kitchen at least. But the rest of the house is painted mud or beige. So, I started thinking what about a nice grey? I keep seeing people talk about "revere pewter" from Benjamin Moore as the ultimate neutral.
this pin. I think this blue is striking without being too much. I'm thinking this plus white for our dining room.
this pin ) seems pretty soft. Our bedroom rug is white, blue, yellow and green. Our duvet is also yellow and blue. I don't know, it may be too subtle??
Anthropologie. I should never browse their sale section. Like, ever.
Ultimately I just have to do what the Nester suggests and just. pick. something. I am going to get started this week and will be sure to update our progress as we go. Any and all tips/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
