I put the first coat of paint in the living/dining room today. The color is called Quaker Grey and in person is a rather bluish/silver/grey. In the pictures it looks more battleship grey which is a bit disappointing. It really is a bit more welcoming when you are in the room. It’s my most neutral color pick, heh heh.
I think it frames the windows nicely.
This corner will house our woodstove. It’s a Vermont Castings in deep navy blue so the paint will really show it off. The hearth is slate with black grout.
The grey will abut the cherry red of the kitchen so that will surely warm it up. I hope to find a red sofa – that would be my dream – but I doubt I will have the money for it. I will have to take what crosses my path.
I think the second coat will make it a much richer color.
Next will be the second of three coats in the bathroom. Woo hoo!
