With the new door drywall nearly complete we are back in painting mode. Since the living room (where the door is) already has new paint, this one is just a touchup project really. However, since part of the ceiling also needs to be touched up I am using the excuse of “the roller is already full of paint” to tackle the hallway ceiling too. And so then why not the walls? A paint color for the hallways and stairwell have always been a point of marriage contention for Matt and I. I blame Pinterest. All the walls in the immaculacy prefect looking houses? Grey. Warm grey, cool grey…but all grey and crisp and so fashionable. I think everyone and their mother has pinned something like these:
Matt hates the idea of grey. And to some extent I agree, but I am working the grey card for these small transitional spaces.
In the past I have always used Behr paint and been very happy with it. But now that Matt gets an employee discount on Benjamin Moore we are giving that a go. I stalked colors and found two greys that I liked from a classic collection. I showed them to Matt, pulled out the other room color samples and we both agreed on one: York Grey. It is a warm tone that will go well with the other more “colorful” colors we picked for the rooms.
So here is to painting…and marital color disagreement! I am so ready to have these projects done!
