New home: seeking "cooler" palette
Sarah LynnApril 21, 2013
We are purchasing this home and I am dead-set on painting before the move (we're wide open as far as furniture goes, the couches are there for reference as we'll be getting a brown leather sectional). I'm trying to narrow down a clear palette; I want to get rid of the BORING builder's tan and give the walls a cooler, more modern feel (possibly gray/greige/charcoal) but I'm not sure what our limitations are. Nothing is changing (tile/cabinets/backsplash/carpet) except the stairs- balusters will be updated to wrought iron in place of the white wood. So... based on what you see, would my gray/greige/charcoal work in this house?
