My painter is coming today and I just decided what color to use – yesterday. I have spent so much money at Sherwin Williams on sample quarts. I have to think of a way to use them elsewhere in the house. A bathroom, perhaps?
Right now, my walls look like this:
Each beige is labeled. I have held up fabric swatches to them. I have looked at them in the morning light, evening light and candle light. I have agonized over the perfect beige. Because basically, I get one shot. I have 2 story walls and an open floor plan. It has to be the perfect color because a “do-over” is quite pricey. There will be very tall ladders here in just a short time. And several painters. If I had not tested them I would have gone with a color that is terrible for this room. But it looks great on the paint swatch! And then I would have had to live with it. Terrible..But I’ve made the choice after sampling.
No going back now. The color I finally chose is Softer Tan by Sherwin Williams.
It looks very dark here. But on my walls it looks like this:
Kind of grey, but warmer than a grey. I like it! It will go with everything and lighten up the space. Right now it is painted a soft gold, which is fine. But it is original builder paint and has seen 12 years of wear and tear. It’s time for a refresher! I can’t wait to hang pictures and share it with you!!!!
