G.O. has been busy with the woodwork upstairs,
so it’s now or never for me to select a paint color for said woodwork.
I’m thinking a medium to dark color with white walls.
G.O. wasn’t on board at first, as he often isn’t.
The last time I had darker woodwork with white walls was in 1985,
when I chose a pretty gray
How 80’s of me!
Fun fact: Benjamin Moore still has their Historic Colors Collection!
Back to my dark woodwork with white walls aspirations.
Yum! Notice the wainscoting,
which is painted with the same color as the woodwork.
Upstairs, we happen to have a pretty embossed wainscot of our own:
I can’t wait to see that original feature shine,
once it’s painted something darker, with white walls.
My first thought was gray, which had me asking:
Isn’t there enough gray downstairs?
Is gray going to fall out of fashion soon?
Aren’t brown +/or beige making big comebacks?
THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!
Anyway, within moments, I began my search
for a neutral that’s more beige than gray,
or, as the popular kids call it: “GREIGE”.
Speaking of which, check out these beautiful greige rooms,
in a charming Charleston, SC home:
It’s not just me — you love it, too, right?
Meanwhile, I’m now back on the prowl for a greige paint that I love!
