it is often difficult to commit to a paint color, and one thing that really helps
is a recommendation from a friend or seeing a room painted in person.
that's why i get excited when big companies like pottery barn and (now)
west elm team up with paint companies...
it's like getting a recommendation from a friend that has great taste,
and the best part is that they use these colors in their catalogs, so
we can catch a glimpse at what the color may look like on our walls.
yay for US!
here are some of my faves:
(i am thinking of using this color in my living room....more on that later.)
(a great alternative to one of my favorite dark grays: kendall charcoal)
silver half dollar
one of the things i really like about the west elm/benjamin moore
selections is that many of the colors are wonderful neutrals that play well
with many other neutrals as well as brighter colors.
on a side note: it's officially summer! my kids got out of school on friday
and we are so looking forward to a fun-filled summer. of course, i will still
be posting all summer, i just may miss a day or two on account of the fun-ness with
also, the redesign of my blog is nearly complete. it has been a long process, but i am
thrilled with the results.
