My Gray Living Room

Last weekend with assistance from my mother in law, we managed to paint our entire living room twice over with the loveliest shade of gray. I am in love with this color, ladies and gents, if you've been looking for your perfect gray I highly recommend checking out Nimbus Cloud from the Martha Stewart line at Home Depot.


My horrible picture does not even do it justice. It's a lighter shade of gray with a warm tone without reading brown, or blue, or green, or anything else. It looks so good with the white trim too.


Akira likes it too! Just a reminder here is the before pic...


Ahh that's better! And look what I picked up at Canton!


It's currently holding a collection of blankets in the living room. I've been looking for one of these for a while and I snagged this one for only $35! I think it's actually meant to hold a plant but I've seen it used for linen storage a lot. This will keep all my blankets out of reach from my blanket eating dogs!

I'm headed to camp on the river in the Texas Hill Country this holiday weekend. Have a fantastic three day weekend everyone!

Great find...and great choice on the walls. I love the contrast between the gray and white. Definite improvement over the all white.

I love the new color it turned out stunning! My Mom actually has one of those wire rolling baskets and I think they were actually made for laundry. (or so she says)

Luvs!

I never thought grey would look nice as a wall color, but my cousin recently went grey and it was lovely. Your shade of grey is particularly awesome -- that trim is gorgeous.
