It actually it one of the things that is most frequently commented on in my home. Everyone seems to love it. However, I am ready for a change and more importantly the walls need a coat of paint - it is time!
So.. onto colors. The kitchen is the one room in the house that does not get a lot of natural light. Therefore, I'm thinking light and bright. I like some of the barely there grey colors out there and have a few of them posted on the wall in the kitchen.
This one might be leading the race right now.
BM Intense White:
Via Young House Love. Their home always feels so fresh. But at the same time I would have said blue if you asked me their paint color. Hmmm.
BM Gray Owl:
This is the darkest of the shades I've shared today. I've used this several times. Once with a client, my mom and dad have it and my sister. It's beautiful but it's definitely blue, in my opinion.
Here is a shot of my kitchen now. (Sorry for the dark photo. It was taken back before I had my new camera. Taking photos this time of year is challenging because there is no more natural light when I get home from work.)
Greys are tricky because deep down they really want to be blue. Put them on the wall and suddenly your grey paint is little boy blue! It's tough! The amount the light in the room, the time of day, the furniture in the room. All can influence the color.
If you have any suggestions for me, I'd love to hear them. I'm really open to anything! Also, you must read the lovely Emily Henderson's post about the best grey paint colors according to Ryan Gosling. It's worth the read... whether you want paint advice or not:)
