The living and dining room are painted and I ended up choosing a different color altogether from the color samples that we painted on the wall (see here). I went with my gut and went with a lighter gray in the living room and an even lighter gray-almost white in the dining room. I love how it turned out. Especially the dining room, it’s so much brighter in there. It’s just what I was longing for.
Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s crisp and oh-so fresh. The color I went with is Edgecomb Gray HC-173 (Dutch Boy paint color matched to Benjamin Moore swatch). We will painting the pinky-beige ceiling in the near future.
This looks bluer on screen than it is in person. In here I went with Seapearl OC-19 (Dutch Boy paint color matched to a Benjamin Moore swatch).
The previous owners painted the ceiling trim white and left the bottom trim in its original state. We’re still struggling with what to do. Do we paint all the trim white? Or do we strip the paint off the ceiling trim? We do know that the contrast of the new paint color and the white trim in the living room looks awesome! That has us leaning towards painting the trim in the rest of the house white. But we’re not sure just yet.
