RE: Hey Duchess

This one will look awesome when the greyish blue plaster is installed.

That's awesome. It must be very rewarding to you to make people so happy with what you do for them. That pool will bring them all a great deal of joy.

It certainly is, it's been everywhere for a couple years now and there's no evidence that it's slowing down.

Greys are really versatile.

Are you still seeing a lot of textured-painted walls Duchess? When I was house- hunting 13 years ago, that was taking off.

I've never done textured paint. On grey, it has a concrete look to it (which I like).

Plus, it seems like it would hide scuffs and such well.

RE: Hey Duchess

Lots of the houses we looked at here had that look. The walls here are almost all textured - no flat walls anywhere.

They put a base color down, then wash a tinted glaze over it. The glaze settles on the texture and makes the walls look even more textured then they actually are.

We just redid the kitchen and did not glaze the walls though - just paint. Agreeable Grey I think it was called.

Texture hides a multitude of sins.

Somewhat, except for with seniors which strikes me as a little odd now that I think of it.

RE: Hey Duchess

I really like the greys and that's what I did my guest bathroom in, but I don't think it will match my kitchen and living room. Here's the living room and it doesnt seem like grey would match. The same colors are in the kitchen also.

RE: Hey Duchess

It looks like it needs a light tan color. And I have to paint, if you look closely the whole top of the ceiling drywall is cracked. There are also spots along the edges of the walls that are cracked. So once the drywall is fixed I have to paint and I don't want to do it the same color.

RE: Hey Duchess

I think a deeper grey would look really good with your neutral furnishings, actually.

But, you could go with a milk chocolate color too, or a reddish orange (my favorite). That would change the whole feel of the room and spice it up. It wouldn't match colors in your furnishings, but it would compliment them.

I like your current color scheme a lot too though. It's a safe bet. If you want to change it up a little, a mocha color might work?

These Benjamin Moore colors are nice and seem like a good match for your decor.

RE: Hey Duchess

I think Espresso would look really striking on the wall with the shutters, with Cafe Mocha on the other walls and ceiling.

That's what I was thinking, I like that idea. I also like the burnt orange color you mentioned, but my husband would complain about it. He's the only thing that stands in my way.

Work the conversation into the next RV BJ. Problem solved.

You have androgynous taste. I wouldn't know if a woman or a man picked everything out; I just know it really works.

Get the paint and hire a painter to help you when you know your husband will be gone the full day. Your space is so open and uncluttered, it won't take long to get the first coat on.

When he gets home and admits he likes it, tell him you know how much he loves coffee and you wanted to do something nice to surprise him.

If he claims not to like it, tell him that's okay -- wallpaper is making a comeback.......

Good luck sal. It'll be cool to see whatever you do.
