The paint is a custom-mixed color. We started with Sherwin Williams "Gray Screen" then cut it by 25%. Then we added 1 more drop of black tint. The color will look different in different rooms, depending on the light. You could also play with SW "Misty".

Ellen, I have used Passive SW 7064 in my Great Room/Kitchen and up my stairs. This connects into my formal living and dining rooms that have alot of beautiful crown molding and columns of white. I was considering using Argos SW7065 or Cityscape SW 7067. Any advice as I love your designs.

I think Argos is too light to be a good contrast but I think Cityscape is too dark. I would try samples of Argos 150% (little darker) or maybe try Gray Matters

what do you mean you cut the paint by 25%? Pardon my ignorance. If I go to the paint store and ask them to do that, should they know what I'm talking about? Thx!

It means that the paint store takes the formula and takes out 1/4 of each pigment amount before adding to the paint base.

Beautiful room..I love your work. I have a mirror like this one 70x 41. Do you think I can put this over a 68 in buffet? My ceilings are 8 ft cathedral and it is an open floor plan.

It won't fit unless you turn it sideways. I like mirrors that are taller than they are wide, even though I realize that some people turn them sideways.

I was hoping to turn it sideways. Between the buffet and mirror it will take up most of the wall. It will have the reflection of the chandlier and the window which reflects the water. My concern is that there will be a i inch overhang on eac side of the buffet. Do you think it will look bad?
