And we have lift off ...

We'll we've lifted the lid on a can of paint that I have to say I'm SO happy with! Thank you to all of the emails I received with photos of rooms with gorgeous paint colors, and all of your paint suggestions here on the blog.
I had really wanted a soft blue, Scott wanted a soft green, and finding a paint color that worked for both of us was certainly not easy. Until last night, when we tested the Behr Ultra Verdigris UL210-7. Even in the wee hours of the morning I liked the soft silvery sage/blue/grey color when the only light I had to judge by was the new sconces, but come morning light - I FELL IN LOVE!
What's better is the fabric options that are now opened up by deciding on a color that isn't blue or green, but a grey tone mix of both. Are you itching to see what it all looks like? Just a few more days and it'll be ready for the big reveal!


  1. Such a tease- I'm dying to see this amazing color you speak of :)

  2. Oooooh, I told you, I've been LOVING those greyed down colors! It'll be gorgeous!

  3. Hi "A" looking forward to seeing how you pulled it all together. Something quite amazing I'm sure!


  4. Can't wait to see it! I really wasn't expecting blue with all the warm, earthy tones you have in the rest of your home. I'm thinking this may be the perfect compromise.

  5. Yes! Yes, I'm itchy to see it dammit!!!! Couldn't you at least give us a peek at a portion of a light fixture? Waaaaaaa

    Justine :o )

  6. I bet it is awesome! It is so exciting to find just the right color.
