This past week I had the pleasure of helping a few clients choose paint colors. One was a sweet older lady who was widowed and in her late 70’s who was redecorating her main living spaces.
It’s one of my favorite things to do!  As a Certified Color With No Regrets Consultant it’s a blast to start with over 1000 colors and without asking “What is your favorite color” narrow it down to just a couple of colors that are exactly what the client had in mind!
This of course can only really be done on location but e design color selection can work if you have an idea what you like but are not sure which color to choose.
This was the case with one of our e design clients who took advantage of our $10 quick design questions.
Her request for a dark bold gray for her bedroom resulted in these 2 choices..
Sherwin Williams Urbane Gray
Ben Moore Chelsea Gray
Elle Decor
Most of the gray colors I choose are not this bold but I love the way it looks. Regardless of which one she chose, I suggested using a lot of white to keep it from looking too dark.
Another e design client wanted a soft neutral gray that didn’t read blue and these 2 Benjamin Moore colors were my choices.  Shale Gray has a slight green undertone and Abalone has a slight purple undertone but still reads gray and is easy on the eyes..

The gray trend is still going strong and I for one am glad, because the choices are endless! I keep finding more and more favorites and wanting to repaint everything in my house!
With Spring on the way, is there any painting in your immediate future? I think there might be in my house!
Thanks for stopping in and leaving your comments and have an awesome weekend!
