Hi all. I'm heady from paint fumes but thought I would show my next little sampler start from Chessie and Me, H. Kesssel.
Small and simple. The bottom row is all motifs and I think it will be a really nice finish. These were the types I used to design to sell at the shop, can't find, and may try to work up a few as my next project.
Right now, we're in the midst of this.
Naturally, the paint I chose was perfect in the half pint sample, and much darker with more pink in the gallon. Historic selection of Valspar - Homestead Resort Parlor Taupe. Really a neutral tan/beige/taupe, but where did they come up with that name? It's a homestead - no, it's a resort - no, it's a parlor! I don't really care anymore. I wanted a true neutral with no cream or yellow cast, nor greenish or pinkish taupe. I prefer this because I like the darker colonial colors on the trim to be a sharp contrast and the walls to be more of a whitewash grayish not warm and not white darker but neutral with no cast of any kind which is difficult to find. They roll their eyes and run for cover when they see me coming. Now I have to pick the trim color and it's not easy for me. Dark? Very dark? Gray/green? Taupes?
Sherwin Williams' old Curio Gray has always been one of my favorites and I have it in mom's bedroom. I'm leaning toward an
olive brown, greenish gray, dark blue, mustard, grayish taupe, but that will change I'm sure. Always afraid I will change my mind, and I will, so might as well just jump right in and get this room done.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
I'll have my nose in paint samples and elderberry pie.
Thanks for visiting!
