Paint Colors

Choosing paint colors is such a pain. We currently have around 5 colors painted throughout the house in "test spots," and while we have narrowed down the main floor color to something similar to the light blue on the top image, we are still trying to figure out a darker color for the kitchen, bathroom, and possibly the dining and laundry room. T has a favorite, but I think it might be too "Easter egg."

These are some of the images via this this photostream that we were looking at for blue, gray, or white rooms:

Wow, I'm in love with the colour in the picture with the side table, chair, and round white mirror.

It's pretty isn't it? It is Sherwin-William's Hazel, and one "swatch" greener than the one we are thinking of.

I just painted my bathroom "Harbor Haze" by Benjamin Moore. It might be what you're looking for...it's light and somewhat "Martha Stweart-ish", but not too girly.
Good luck!

Thanks Heather! I'll check it out.

I love the way your mind works and you work through things before you act. The colors are all lovely, but the final decision and you are so happy! I love our chats.
love you so much
