My normally angelic baby has been a cranky pants this morning so instead of enjoying the sweet early summer sunshine she is asleep and I am trapped inside with my other two kiddos. In their excitement over going to our friends house this afternoon they are uncontrollable. Netflix to the rescue! Ensue quiet blogging time for mommy.
I went over several ideas for potential top tens this week then decided that it might be good to follow up my post on “All White Done Right” by giving out some suggestions for great neutral wall colours (including some whites). I hail from the West Coast and over here where we experience an over abundance of grey days, you have to be careful to not go too cool with your wall colour. These colours, minus chelsea grey and grey owl, err on the side of warmth to counteract this cloudy day effect. If you are decorating a room that gets a lot of southern exposure, grey owl or chelsea grey can work well for you.
All colours are from Benjamin Moore.
I love colour but if you live in a new build like I do there is often little separation between rooms. It is nice (though not necessary) to land on one neutral colour for the main, interconnected rooms and save the bolder choices for bedrooms and bathrooms. A neutral envelope leaves you with plenty of options to get creative and bring in colour through furniture and accessories.
Hope these suggestions help you in your quest for the perfect wall colour!
