Man, I am so sorry I did not take pictures this past weekend, and I really meant to do so. The search for the perfect dusty blue-gray for the bedroom was just plodding on and on but there has finally been a breakthrough! Mo painted me eight choices on the walls and none of them were really perfect. I brought three more with me, because I thought that might happen (coughpickycough). One day I was waiting at the bus stop in front of a hardware store when the Benjamin Moore display caught my eye and so two of those three came from there. They had lots of samples, all really dusty, but I got two that I thought might work, one because it looked good and the other because it both looked good and I recognized the name as something I had pinned on my Pinterest board. Who knew Pinterest could have some use other than “look, my board is more full?”
I also stopped in at Restoration Hardware and picked up a sample of Shore. I was shore (har) the final choice would be Shore, not only because I had pinned that as well, but because I have a pair of slippers in Shore (back when RH used to sell things like slippers and board games. Now they are terribly, terribly Serious). I love Shore. But it turned out to be just off enough that it wouldn’t work. So, it looks like the final choice will be… drumroll please….
Nantucket Fog! Which I like to call, “Baltimore Fog.”
(There is no fog in Baltimore, just clouds of humidity).
It is really lovely and matches the other accessories that have already been purchased, like this chair (picture by Mo, and she actually bought this chair when I wasn’t looking because I liked it, but that’s another story),
and these curtains, which you can’t see the color on, oh well…
But now it will really be too much to have dusty blue-gray bedding, and so the thinking has shifted to cream on beige. Or beige on cream. There was a lovely one from RH, but it’s too traditional and the room will be more modern. So, maybe this? Or this, which is a little too traditional (and expensive)? Not sure yet.
But hey, now that one room is 50% done, only six more to go! I hope you all can come to my housewarming party in June of 2015.
Anyhoo, I’ll be down Memorial Day weekend so will take some pictures then. Definitely.
