Gray Skies

I am obsessing over paint. Gray paint to be exact. My nursery color to be even more exact.

I even dreamed about it last night.

I know I have a problem but the right color can make all the difference in the world. While I know most people could care less about shades and tones of what looks like the same color. Those same shades and tones drive me crazy if its wrong.

So here is where I am at today with my color:

Edgecomb Gray is out - after painting about 20% of the room I stopped and decided that is was looking a slight tint of purple.

Revere Pewter is out - to dark for the room.

So back to the drawing board to test out some new gray colors.........

Classic Gray

Gray Owl


Gray Cashmere

They all look like the same color but I tell you once you put it on your wall with different light and different times the colors become drastically different.

Amazing Gray from Sherman Williams is a lovely gray that I have my end table and a bookshelf painted. I wanted a shade or 2 lighter for my walls. I am currently re-painting my trim Dove White!!!
Amazing Gray

And the was a crazy glimpse into my crazy hormonal obsessive head for the moment!!! And this could all change once I get into the paint store.

I have Cashmere Gray in my master bath, and it looks more like a mint green.

Thanks for the info on the Cashmere Gray - need more of a warm tone instead of green!!!
