I fell into an internet rabbit-hole this week. You know, where you find a site that leads you to a link that makes you think to google something and before you know it hours have disappeared? Sometimes this leads me to total dead ends, but sometimes I discover amazing and wonderful things. Discovery: grey and beige can be friends.
Here's the backstory: I've been wanting to take on a new project recently. Mr. Fix-It has been pushing for us to paint the remaining walls in our Master Bedroom a super-soft-subtle grey. I just couldn't commit.
I thought with the bold purple accent wall, soft grey walls would just be too much. Plus, I wasn't sold on the idea that the grey would work with the beige accents in the room (read: carpet, curtains, headboard, and winter duvet). I proposed painting the whole room grey, but Mr. Fix-It seemed sad about letting the purple wall go. I tried to talk him into it, but my argument was kind of weak since I honestly wasn't convinced grey and beige would work.
This is where the internet rabbit-hole comes into play.
I stumbled upon Kristin's post at Bien Living on a makeover she did for Sara at Running From The Law.
I am now convinced I must have rich grey in our Master. But, alas, we still have the beige issue. Seeking inspriation, I hit the ever-reliable Pinterest.
What do you think? I texted Mr. Fix-It that I want to start painting on Friday night. Would you go for it?
