Paint Choices

Paint colors from a swatch they give you at the store are hard to tell what they'll look like in your room.  I've spent my fair share on the $7 samples from Sherwin Williams.  So much that Kevin said do not buy another single one of those, haha!  And our bedroom wall looks like patchwork at the moment with all the different colors.  

Anyway, thanks to all of your help and my neighbor Lisa, I think we've decided on SW Passive.  This below is not our bedroom but the color on the walls is what we are going with.  This actually makes it even look a little purple, it isn't.  It has green undertones and is a firm gray.  

Kevin really liked the Passive versus the color of the room below - Nebulous White.  They're on the same color swatch or whatever you call those things.  He just thought we may as well paint the walls white because it was so light.  

And dear friends, if Kevin has an opinion about something then by golly I better take advantage of it and use it!  It's not often he has a real opinion especially about fashion or decorating so I'll take it and run.  Quite frankly, I like the Passive as well.  Still neutral enough but is more than white.  

I'll be sure to post after pictures of our room when it's done in a couple weeks.  Need to get cords hidden behind the TV before painting!

Now we are working on irrigation, landscaping, landscape lighting and a new patio.  Lots of projects happening this fall after a summer of fun and being lazy house-wise!


  1. I love it. We changed our bathroom paint to a very cool gray like that and it's just so calm and happy. Good choice!

  2. Will have to check that color out. We did SW Fleur de Sel in the nursery and I love it but it's very light gray. Need something with more substance for our bedroom.

  3. I think it's going to look great! I can't wait to see how it will turn out.

  4. i love the gray color! our last condo had a gray bedroom and now i want to paint our current place. xo jillian - stop by! I'm hosting a Graphic Image datebook giveaway on cornflake dreams
