Hey everyone out there in RH Blog Land. Hope every is doing well at whatever point you are in construction, move in, live in...etc.
Not much going on in my journey...except I kinda, sorta, found a color scheme while walking through Tarjay this morning. When I first moved in, I ventured over to value city and they had a grey couch with stripped grey/white side chairs in their showroom. Something about the grey stood out to me, not sure what it was but I liked it. Ever since then I've been looking at grey(s) and trying to figure out how I can work it into my home. I picked up some paint cards at Lowe's last week and most of them were grey but one of them is this light blue...might be light greyish blue color that I think I could live it. It's not loud that it over powers anything, it's just very subtle. Today in Tarjay the blue, grey theme clicked. Then I saw a mustard yellow and I loved the combination with the grey. I figure I can carry these colors upstairs to the two bedrooms and bathrooms...mix it around a little and it might just work. I think these colors will work with the cabinets, counter tops, and floor very well.
It's kind of funny because I stopped in to see my SR yesterday (she's such a sweet lady...I think she got all of us new homeowners housewarming gifts) and I was telling her that I had no decorating skills...she offered to stop and give some tips/suggestions...anywho, in Target it seemed that part of that decorating know how kicked in. So here's what I found in Target and the paint cards from Lowe's:
|Without flash, the blue looks very subtle|
|With Flash...the blue is what I'd use for an accent wall down stairs in the dining area and living area|
|Maybe this pattern (or something similar for curtains...upstairs? It's busy, but I like it.|
I just liked the blue-ish color here, can't remember if this was a curtain sample or drapes
In my mind, I would paint two accent walls downstairs, in my dining area and behind my couch, these would go well with the light bluish color
