The paint colour. It was in the beige/brown family. I don't know what colour it was. I lovingly referred to it as 'poop water'. (did you just throw up in your mouth a little? I can be a bit crass.)
I wanted it lightened up.
And here's what it looks like now, with new art, new bar cart/side table and most importantly, a fresh coat of paint!
The colour is Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray.
I think this photo is the most accurate representation of the true colour:
Oh and I also added this bowl - found at Ikea! Amazing!
Little reading area.
And a sneak peak into our freshly wallpapered dining room. The dining room is a bit cave like, with no natural light, and as soon as I figure out how to photograph it without it looking like a still from a horror movie, I will.
It's better now, right? Obviously paint colour can change the whole vibe of a room, and it's definitely more 'us' now.
