New House Inspiration



We picked out paint colors (it was epic) for the house and it should be all painted by the end of the week (except for the kitchen which I plan to paint either a dark grey or black and will do myself so that the landlords don't freak out right away). Here are some of the images I was pulling from for inspiration.

Overall I wanted to keep the walls a nice soft grey, darker in the dining room, kitchen and master bedroom (which is by no means master sized) so that I can throw in colorful accessories for an accent but will have nice contrast between the wood floors, grey walls and white trim. it's the quickest I've ever chosen colors for an entire house. Normally I agonize, but I'm getting a lot faster at decision making and knowing what I want. I also know it's just paint ;)

OK, when you said you wanted to paint the kitchen black I was a little astounded, but seeing those images I can see that it would be very striking with all of those white cabinets...I think you should definitely go for the black!

Laure, what is that gray in the bedroom photo? I want to paint mine that shade.

Love your new place and miss you.

I miss Domino too! I'm also thinking about painting our already blue/grey dining room a more grey color. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

I just found your wonderful blog the inspirations for your kitchen are good. I never thought about black walls for a kitchen but after seeing your pictures and inspiration I can see that. I will be back to visit again.
