Around Christmas time of this year, I decided I was over all of the gold paint in my house. And by “over it”, I mean….. I wanted it gone like yesterday.
So I decided I wanted to repaint the walls in all of the common rooms of my house.
But wall color is REALLY a big deal to me. Like REALLY important. I gotta have colors on my walls that I feel good in and that I love. I can’t be “kinda” in love with my walls. I need to LUUUUUUUUUUV my walls.
I had recently seen Sherwin Williams “Ellie Gray” in a client’s home and it made me salivate. For a girl who has proclaimed to “hate gray” for years, that’s saying a lot.
I loved the “Ellie Gray” so much that I wanted to see if it would work in my home, but I was nervous because I have just so.much.brown. And, I didn’t want the gray to feel “cold”.
So I called my decorating friend Deb over for advice. She thought Ellie Gray was too dark and that I should use “Silverplate”. Dang it. Then I was conflicted.
So I followed my own advice in my “Picking the Right Paint Color” free video and I painted 2 big poster boards. And then I turned into a poster board moving maniac. I stared at the 2 colors here for a few days.
And then here.
And yes, here.
And here too.
And surprise, in this room as well.
And then still unsure, I just painted an entire entry wall in half of the dark color and half of the light. And stared at it for another week.
Finally, feeling brave…… we went with the darker “Ellie Gray”.
And guess what? I’m obsessed.
