gray & grey

As I mentioned in this post, finding the perfect gray paint is impossible!  I have always been drawn to black, white, and gray — in fashion and in decor.  There’s drama and an elegance to it.  My goal with my new home is to have a very clean modern feel, with a pop of color.

Here is my inspiration at the moment…

And this mess…

The first coat of “charcoal” gray turned blue/purple.  Now in the middle of the mantle is the new gray.  I think we found a light and simple gray that we can do a lot with.  Now that the ceiling and fireplace are painted, I suppose I must finish the wall.  I am a weekend warrior.
