I had a rare moment of indecision today which lead to me scrapping the idea of painting the front room in Pavilion Gray and opting for the altogether more safe option of slapping another quick coat of white on the walls just to freshen the look and to get rid of those annoying marks that appear where pictures have been hanging. Watch this space. I may yet have another change of heart. Not an unusual occurrence in this house!
And so into the weekend we head. This weekend is going to be all about the front room. To quote Mastermind presenters past and present, "I've started so I'll finish"!
I have to confess to taking the slightly easier route. I convinced myself that the gray would be too dark. I love the colour gray and gazed longingly at it on the walls in my sister in law's newly decorated house recently. Very elegant. Being half the size, I'm not quite convinced my front room can carry it.
Gray, despite the name usually conjuring up thoughts of dreary, dull, ill looking or cloudy wet weather, is actually an excellent colour for painting walls. Gray can be modern, it can be classic and sophisticated. It looks great with crisp white and can be warmed up with citrus shades. In actual fact, it can be the exact opposite of dull and dreary as you can see from the schemes below.
