Name:
Nancy
Location:
Manassas, VA
Division:
Dark
Inspiration for my palette:
My daughter's dark bedroom ceiling and her Sherwin-Williams Naval powder room inspired me to go dark! It makes a bold statement, is gender neutral, great with crisp white, and looks great with added textures, like our jute nailhead trim.
Colors used in my room:
Benjamin Moore Gunmetal eggshell on the walls, BM Semigloss White on trim and lower cabinets, and natural oak boards with clear polyurethane finish coat on counter top.
Tips for using color successfully:
Our mantra is "it's just paint!" Just go ahead and experiment beyond your comfort level and you will find color more user-friendly and welcoming. Use inspiration from blogs and Pinterest to inspire you and give you confidence. Choose a main color, a secondary color and an accent color, which can be totally opposite on the color wheel. No rules, just go for it!
