The last few weeks I have been updating our house a bit with paint.  Originally I had the house painted in creams but this time around I focused on variations or gray and in the living room I went almost white.

These are the Benjamin Moore colors I ended up using in our home….

Wickham Gray – this is a lovely color with blue and even a tad bit of green in it.  I ended up using it in our eat-in kitchen area that has tons of natural light.  See below images of the color in use…I’ll share pictures of it in our home in a few days.

Soft Chamois – I am loving this color I used it in our living/dining area. It’s bright and crisp a gorgeous neutral. See the below images.

Classic Gray – This color is VERY light but still gorgeous.  It’s a wonderful neutral if you don’t want a deep gray.  It still offers a bit of color.  I used this in a room that has windows but doesn’t get a ton of natural light.  It still makes the room feel light and airy.  Pictures to come from my house…….see the below images of the color this is pretty true to what I found in my home.

Gray Owl – The amount of light you get in your room really changes the color of the paint on the walls. I ended up using this in my office and I’ll share the final project with you in the next week or so.  My office is a loft type space with tons of natural light and the color is gorgeous.  It has a hint of blue in it.

    I would love to know the manufacturer/name of the bathroom mirror. The shape is rectangle, with antiquing & metal beading. I love it!
