I actually like the artistic look of that mantle composition
....those large gray swatches look great there.

By the way, since you it's your thing, can it be grey or gray? Are both correct.?

C., great question about grey/gray. I believe I am correct in saying 'grey' is the more popular european spelling while 'gray' is most popular in the US. donna

Hilarious... I'm loving that mirror though...

Donna,

Thanks for the mention! I can't wait to get the room painted. I decided not to paint the swatches on the wall knowing that it might take me a while to make my decision.

Have a nice day!

Love it!!! You've got to make sure you love the color before you bathe your walls in it. Makes perfect sense to me!

Happy Thursday to you, Donna!

So funny! We lived like this for over a year while building our house. Our contractor cut up pieces of sheetrock for us, which we then painted...there were soooo many. I lugged these back and forth from our temporary home to the one we were building almost daily, and when they weren't in the car, they were all over the house. It was actually hard to throw them away in the end, I got kind of used to them.
We still have one left...it's for above the fireplace...and it's GREY! :)
So happy we *are not* alone!

Carmella said...

Love it! That was our house last year! Have to love the test colors painted in giant swatches - couldn't do it without 'em! I found (or rather made) the perfect gray for us. Yes. Perfect!
