Here's a few pictures of those walls that got painted gray (Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter) at Middle Daughter's house.
She was worried about the gray turning blue in her house, but she's happy with the color.
I've only seen it in these phone pictures taken right after the painters left, but I love the look of the gray with the white and the wood.
She's also working on eliminating the original builder's lights. She ordered just one of these lights online to try it out.
It seems with this gray, the more white the better! Middle Daughter painted the sides of her stairs white, pulled out the strip of carpet that went down the middle of the stairs, and she plans to paint more of the wood white after the wood is refinished.
She's really happy to no longer have her "Coat of Many Colors House" as she use to call it.
When she moved in, the dining room (seen to the left in the above picture) was burgundy, the kitchen was yellow, the entryway was a sage green, the playroom was peach, and the rest of the walls downstairs were an awful orangy-brown!
Here's the only picture I could find of the brown walls. As you can see, she had already painted swatches of different light and medium gray colors. You can also see the green, which was just around the corner.
I like how her walls turned out so I bought a sample can of BM's Revere Pewter, and I'm going to have a go at a few areas of our house too.
