Yes, I said "gray." I know, I know, the blue kitchen was *my* thing, but I was ready for a change and since this is all one big open space, I wanted to paint it all the same color.
So, "Geneva swan gray" it was. This is just a lighter version of the "Grand smoky mountain" color the cabinets and trim are painted. (And -- this is Walmart "Colorplace" paint. I use it all the time and have had great luck with it so far.)
I really like this soft, neutral shade because it gives me the option of using whatever color I want as an accent. Now, it's red, but you all know I'll get out the pink and blue for summer.
I showed you the shelves last week accessorized with milk glass, McCoy, ironstone, silver and my Blue Ridge "Stanhome Ivy."
It's definitely brighter, but I found myself looking for the "color" when I was shooting from this angle. Maybe I'll put a rug there at the door.
You can tell against the white crown molding that it's not white, but a soft gray.
Doesn't everyone have a Minecraft puzzle on their fridge? It's a snow day today:-)
I think the Blue Ridge dishes really go well with the red fabric I'm using, and also carry some color around the space.
I do love the change, and like I mentioned last week, it's kind of a "palate cleanser," I think, and always subject to change:-)
I'll be joining:
