#2Copley gray: livingroom and entry way . I've loved gray for awhile now and i especially love gray and yellow combinations. At first I was a bit concerned about such a dark colour but because of the open plan of the house I think it will work. The next obstacle is dealing with the vaulted ceiling and where to stop with which colour. Hmmmmm...#3. Rockport gray: upstairs hallway and bonus room. Our bonus room looks down into the living room so I decided to choose one shade lighter of the gray for a few reasons. First of all I wanted the colours to be similar so the space wouldn't seem to broken up and second I didn't want the upstairs to be too dark so I figured one shade lighter would be a good choice for the space. I read a post from the blog Young House Love about creating flow with colour and I think the dark and light gray will flow well.
#4 Masada: Bathrooms. My latest development has been choosing a orangy red colour for the main floor and upstairs bathroom. I like the idea of a bold colour for a bathroom because I figure it's a safe room to take risks with because who really cares if it doesn't look awesome. Everyday I fall a little more in love with this colour though so I'm pretty stoked about it.
#5 and finally... Mortar:on one of my more lengthy visits to Benjamin Moore I picked up this colour that I love for our master bedroom and bathroom. It's fairly dark but I think the space will be able to handle it. We have a tonne of windows in our bedroom that will need covering (Terralee came over the other day and pointed out that people will be able to watch us have sex and of course we don't want that to happen!) so I'm thinking of doing white window coverings to lighten up the room.
*can i just say that the colours as they appear on the computer screen are quite different from the swatches I have in my hand. Computers ruin great colour:(
