help me with paint colors - Hi liz, do you think edcomb gray would look good on walls a ceilings in a large 2 story house with lots of cathedral ceilings? we have a lot of windows looing down to the lake. that will have white trim around them, but by floors and all built in intertainment centers and cabinets are dart stained wood. if you know of anoter color that would sure appreciate it. My contractor wanted my paint colors last week and im struggling trying to figure this out. thanks

The colors can also be influenced by what furnishings you put around them. Do you have inspiration pieces that contain the other colors you want in the rooms -- like a painting, area rug or fabric? It can be helpful to view your color samples against those pieces as well. In the end, you'll want it all in perfect harmony.

this room is beautiful! I've been searching houzz for Edgecomb gray and this room looks so different! It looks creamy-almost White Dove or slightly creamier. Is it used at full strength or perhaps there's a lot of natural light in the space?? Thanks for your feedback. Paint is terribly hard to figure out! :/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Get the Look: Beach Cottage Style
Tip: Use shells from a collection sparingly. This designer used just a few favorite shells from her client's collection and painted the walls behind them gray. The result is that they stand out and get the attention they are due. See the rest of this coastal condo
Beth Dotolo, RID, ASID added this to Designing with Souvenirs
Another great way to display your shells is to use them more as sculptural art. The casual living room here displays shells in a bookshelf that is back painted in a contrasting color, allowing the shells to pop. This can be done using any souvenir. African masks, plates, ancient currency pieces, and many other collectible sculptural pieces would look great in a setting like this and helps set the tone for the space.
Finding the best way to display and edit her clients' collections was an important part of the design, and Williams was careful not to step into shell overload. "The idea of one large shell on each shelf seemed to be the answer and made more of an impact," Williams says. "The darker color on the ceiling and inside the bookcases gives a little drama without overwhelming the room, and the large shells really pop against the dark color." The living room is a combination of the client's collections, new pieces and antiques. The floor lamps add history and a weathered patina; they were crafted from reclaimed architectural pieces. These lamps, the chairs and the old train-cart coffee table were purchased through South of Market.
Rebecca Heane added this to Elements of Classic Coastal Style
Paint your fireplace surround and alcoves in neutral shades to create a great backdrop for displaying specimen shells, coral and coastal art. A limed or weathered oak coffee table completes the look.
