I love this GREY!!

Miss Goodman Property
Only once have I bought a sample pot and this was the one time it was an absolute failure. I now know with myself not to second guess my gut instinct on colour choices.

Mr G had not wanted me to paint any part/room of the house as we only did it all in 8 months ago. So when Mr G went to The Alice for 5 days of work I went to the paint store 🙂

It started with a bit of this…..

Grey paint selection done.

And then as soon as I started putting the colour on I knew this was just what my furniture and the room needed. White is the easy choice when you are painting your house. It takes vision to go with a colour, but the results are worth it. If you are thinking about painting a room, I say go for it, you can always paint it back if you hate it THAT much. And as I also gravitate towards white furniture I needed to have colour on my walls or else everything blends in. That and I am now wanting to increase the timbers and other natural textures into my home, otherwise an all white house with all white furniture it is rather boring.

Here is my lounge room when Mr G went away.

And then after all that hard work with thanks to Mister G for helping with the big furniture removal and the application of the first coat this is the AFTER.

With a coat of Taubmans we are now looking like home.

I cannot love it anymore than I do now, and now it shows even more that I need some wall art! Any guesses what Mr G brought back from Alice Springs?

P.S. If you noticed the lamp on the right? I will do a separate post of that little gem, it is too beautiful not have it’s own post.

So hard to pick a paint colour

I have been thinking that our lounge room and bedroom lacks a level of texture, depth, warmth. It is OK to paint the walls all white in our house but now we are settled in it feels like we are afraid of colour. I have been deconstructing some of the images I have saved on my pinterest account and perhaps paint isn’t what I need it is timber flooring. If only that came in a can!

This image of a navy room below is a favorite of mine, it looks like the floorplan of my front room. Delightful.

And what about these two images below? I love the fabrics, the blue and white china but there is not a dark wall in sight here and yet these are favorite images. I do love how dark timber furniture gives the room a sense of history. Good thing for me I am a collector (insert horder :D)
