It’s taken a year but we are finally ready to consider painting our living room.
It’s currently painted in an antique ivory (I know this because I have bought a sample pot in this colour and it has disappeared on the wall) and with a feature wall and an old chimney breast in a very deep red.
However I have this cream sofa in the room
and these two armchairs at the other end of the room.
and whilst Antique Ivory would go perfectly fine with the 2 armchairs, our cream/beige carpet and the cream sofa may just melt away if I paint the other end ivory.
So I’m thinking grey. MrG is slightly distressed at the idea of grey so I’m going as light as I possibly can to keep him on side.
I love this grey
but I fear he’ll think it’s too dark.
This one might work.
but I think this one goes too light.
You may think I’m being very pedantic about this. However, we have always gone white/ivory with our wall colours so this is really pushing it out.
I’m hoping to have a sort of oatmeal coloured curtains too and they sit alongside the two armchairs.
Of course, the biggest hurdle we have here is that I’m colourblind, so there is a distinct possibility I’m mashing up too many colours.
What do you think? Do you like grey?
