Gray is the New Neutral
I never thought the day would come when I would choose gray walls in my own house, and like it. But that day has come! I finished painting the kitchen Behr's Porpoise and I absolutely love it. Normally I choose warm colors for home decorating - grays tend to remind me of cold office buildings - but I'm loving the brightness that this new color brings to the kitchen... especially against the dark woods.
|Excuse the clutter... we had just finished removing the backsplash and were in the process of spackling.|
|Note the new chairs from overstock.com that look exactly like the Pottery Barn Isabella |
chairs I wanted (but more than half the price). Excuse the unfinished bench...
Plus, I have white dishes and server ware - which look awesome against the gray walls. However, now I'm thinking that white subway tile would look great as a backsplash. But I'd like to hold out for corian countertops before I install tile - might as well wait and do it right the first time. It'll just take some time to save up for that.
I kind of like the white countertop with white backsplash idea, but Hubby thinks it will all just wash out.
Then again I also like how everything looks now with the dark countertops... we'll see I guess. We still have plenty of time before that decision needs to be made.
