Paint SCHMAINT

This is the color of the interior of my home. Silver Sage. I love it. This is the color I'm going to paint the kids' bathroom. Sea Green.
With the ceiling in Silver Sage.
I know, not much risk here.

And this is the bathroom floor (only with dark gray grout).

This COULD be the color I'm going to paint our bedroom, and possibly the boys' room. Or something like it. And since I don't have a RH swatch, I have spent many an afternoon pondering Benjamin Moore's gray selection (and it is vast).
Does anyone know of a good gray that would look nice with...

this pillow?

Or not. I'm flexible. It seems like it should be so easy, but I have already purchased paint and tested it on my wall, and gray can be tricky. Too blue, too green, too purple, too brown. You get the idea. Just a nice neutral gray, that's all I want. And yes, I've already looked at Pottery Barn's Ben Moore offerings. Most are too brown.

I LOVE the gray. But I'm not much help with paint advice, sorry. Also, I don't get the pun. Please explain.

Oh, I get it! Ewww.

I was just going to suggest pottery barn.... But! Can we have an Enrichment in your house so I have a reason to come look around!??

Sarah said...

Um, let's have enrichment at YOUR house. You are the decorator! You can come over any time.

Benjamin Moore's CLIFFSIDE GRAY is what we used inside our house. It is an exterior paint-color, but you can ask them to match the color in an interior paint. It's a great neutral color- way better than tan or white (IMHO). -AMY BARRY

Amy, you're the best! I just pulled out my BM swatch book. Love the color.

Abby said...

you took off the pun. i liked it.

Sarah said...

yeah, It was maybe a bit off-color.

Abby said...

PUN INTENDED!

Love seeing what your doing to your house! Very fun. We've liked our Benjamin Moore paint in the past, so I'm sure that perfect color is somewhere out there. . . Did that sound like a little mouse singing about paint samples?

Sarah said...

...someone's saying a prayer,
that I'll find,
the perfect paint,
somewhere out there,
out where dreams
come true!.......

I painted our bathroom Silver Sage -- and I adore it. And the fact that you are going to use it kind of makes me feel style-validated, like if cute, stylie, creative Sarah is using it too, it must have been a chic choice! Yay!
