For about a year I’ve been rocking an amazing shade of purple in my room, Sherwin Williams Ash Violet, but after living in the home for a little while, I’ve realized that the room really needs a lighter color to brighten it up (lack of properly placed windows probs). While I absolutely love the purple color, I’m afraid a lighter purple might look too “little girly”, so I’ve decided to go with a light gray-blue or green this time.
Since the paint is on the darker side, I’ve already done the prep work by giving it one quick coat of primer (Kilz water-based) and have touched the walls up as necessary.
Now- the fun part! Which color to choose… hmm…
After spending some time perusing the paint department in Home Depot for some lighter spring colors, my three contenders are:
And here they are in the room!
I’m leaning towards one of the two blue colors, Behr’s Misty Morn or Salt Glaze, but maybe something in the middle since one’s a bit dark and one’s a bit light? I’m still undecided… All three go well with the Sherwin Williams Requisite Gray color in the hallway so there’s good flow, but I have to work with the yellowish trim so I need to keep that in mind.
Do you have a favorite or another suggestion? Hopefully this project will get wrapped up this week after a decision is made and I can share the reveal! (fingers crossed!)
