Grey Owl

Grey Owl

The very first room to get new paint was the living room. Those very white walls were calling out, “Please paint me a nice warm grey to go with the fireplace grout.”  Finding a nice warm grey took a few tries. This room has west facing windows all across the front and a ton of light comes in.

The first grey sample ended up looking brownish and so did the second.  Trust me – it looked brown/grey. “Warm Grey” was not grey on these walls!

So…had to go to the cool side and found just the thing …”Grey Owl” by Benjamin Moore.  What a great name!

I painted and painted – that room took a long time! But what a difference.  Totally soaks up all that bright sunlight and it feels very cozy even on dark stormy days.  Yay for Grey Owl!


Living Room with FurnitureI love how the white woodwork all stands out now and you can really see all the crown molding also.  The whole room just feels a little bit more like home to me.  Isn’t that stained glass window awesome!  It came with the house and looks just beautiful in the afternoon with the light coming in.
