Gray vs Brown

First let me start off with some great news! We officially sold and closed on our last home. Hooray! It was on the market for 6 months and we got a few offers but this last offer was for full asking price. Praise the Lord! I am so glad we no longer have 2 house payments or 2 heating bills. Now let's get down to business the fun stuff.

I am in love with gray paint. It's an obsession. Every time I am looking on or searching for pictures of a certain room, I skip over the tan and brown rooms and fall in love with any room that's gray. I'm pretty sure I dream about the color gray at night.

Our first house was a colorful disaster. Every room was a different color and now that would drive me insane.


Yes, my kitchen was a beautiful coral color what was I thinking with a brick red color on the soffit and in the adjoining dining room. Eek!

Here's the dining room...

The smaller living room (there was also a big one)....

I was not afraid of color then but I think all of those blinding colors did something to me that I'll never be able to get back.

With our second house I made the biggest mistake in the kitchen and was pretty much stuck with a tan theme. Although tans and browns are very calming and relaxing.

After being stuck with a tan theme in our second home, I knew I wanted my next home to be covered in gray. Maybe I am still in color shock from our first house, but I love having neutral walls throughout a house and then using pops of color with pictures, decorations, or pillows. It's so easy to change out those little pieces if you want to go a different direction with your color scheme.

Here is a picture of our current dining room and the beautiful gray walls, which will look so much better once I get my hands on some white paint and slather it all over that trim.

What is your preference, gray or brown?
