From our foyer, one can see about half of our house, so I'm looking for a neutral color that I can paint most of it.
I'm kind of bored of the typical beige color that we had in our last house...and as much as I love the look of all white, I like colored walls too much to use it.
My husband and I both love blue - and we live at a lake, so we'd like our home to give a subtle casual beach vibe.
Sounds easy enough...
...or not. This is my 2nd set of paint chips. Usually, I go to the store, stare at the swatches, pick one and paint.
But I need something soothing since this is where I spend about 95% of my waking hours...with 2 toddlers...and a hyper dog who loves to bark at the 2350 rabbits in our yard.
I want a soft gray-blue with a hint of green.
Here are the top contenders...
This is an actual swatch from the Lowe's website, it looks more blue here than it does on the paper swatch. The first picture is actually closer to how it looks in person.
I know, I said no beige...but I'm drawn to this color and...
...this color. Though I don't know if these colors might be too dark for such a big space.
Sea salt blue...sigh...can you the salt on your lips?
This is the shade my husband and I both liked from the first set of paint chips...and the only one I carried into the second batch of options.
I've never tried buying the small sample paints before...usually I dive right in and buy the color I like.
I think I'm going to try it this time because it's likely I'll be living with this color for a long time....and with 2 toddlers, I need as many soothing elements around me as possible!
Which of these colors do you like best?
take care -
