I've been dragging my feet in picking out a paint color for the new house.
I wanted to go with my Paint BFF, Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter, since I loved it in our last house. Easy enough right? Wrong. They told me I had to go with their paint company. I froze like a deer in headlights. Kerrrrr-appp!!! I'm not good a picking out paint. It took me 7 years to finally find the perfect one!
So, the other day I went into paint sample panic.
And then went to my trusty Pinterest boards. Pretty much every single image I have saved of rooms has one thing in common. White walls. Oh dear.
I love the look, but when it comes to my own home, it skeers me. I stared at my paint samples again and again and decided I was going for it. Well, more like dipping my toes in.
I'm going with Palomino Gray on the upper left. It isn't registering too much lighter than Revere Pewter in the photo, but in person it's significantly lighter.
I'm going from being scared of the almost white walls to really excited. I figure now or never right?
My mom always tells me that she thinks I'm afraid of color because of my love of black and white in décor. But in reality, it's the lack of color that scares me!
Are any of you embracing naked walls? What do you think?
