New Beginnings- Benjamin Moore – Colorado Gray

Sunday as I lay on the sofa in our bedroom staring at the ceiling, listening to Claire snoring on the floor next to me and a lawn mower hum down the street, I finally made some decisions.

I think a soothing blue will allow me to use the mocha colored silk drapes I already have. This means I can keep our cheap red plaid comforter that I still like even though it’s old.

Behind the drapes I’ll use matchstick blinds.

I’ll keep two comfortable chairs and a rocker and reupholster them with fabric I have already.

We need new carpet. (Thankfully John agrees!)

I’ll replace the two over head light fixtures (word, try to avoid putting overhead light fixtures on a gabled ceiling) either with some shapely milk glass ones that disappear or with two old gold chandeliers. These days Home Depot is making some that are nice.

This is a color I will test for our walls. It is actually much lighter and softer than it appears here. Otherwise it would be too heavy for the space. Of course, it could look all wrong once it goes up. I never know until I try it.

    I think mocha colored drapes will be gorgeous with that color! Our guest bathroom is painted a similar color and we chose chocolate brown towels. : )

    Troy, you need to go to the Decorator’s Showhouse which opens on Saturday and benefits Wishard Health Services…anyway the entry hall color is very similar to yours, Paladium Blue-Benjamin Moore, with the ceiling reduced about 3 shades. Adjacent is the cocoa brown living room, and light brown/beigey gold family room. One of the better showhouses. Call me if you want tickets.
