Most of the colors in my house are light grays, blues and greens. I usually stick to a lighter palette overall but lately, I’m really drawn to dark gray. For me, it was this photo!  I shared this on my Facebook Page and had everybody oooing and aaaing!

Dark walls

I have a charcoal sofa so this would not work for me. I think you need lighter and brighter furniture to keep it from looking too dark.  Of course what makes this room are the Coral chairs!

I also saved these photos in my inspiration file. Still gray but much lighter and more neutral than what I have now.

And Benjamin Moore Abalone…

My walls are closer to this blue gray so I thought maybe just doing the ceiling in Benjamin Moore’s Smoke.


I might actually tackle this in the dining room which could use a little drama.. What do you think? Are you all over the dark gray colors or do you think it’s a quick passing trend?

On another note, my blog has now been transferred over to WordPress and I hope you’ll follow along here. It’s so much easier having my website and blog in one place. I still need to do some work on my  sidebar so I apologize if it looks a bit of a mess right now, but I hope to fix that this weekend. If anyone has suggestions for a WordPress newbie like myself, I’d love to hear them!

Have a great weekend!
