Help me de-sage-ify my house

November 6, 2019

Planning to repaint our 15 year old house and we want to get rid of some of the sage (Gray Mirage on the walls and Nantucket Gray on the trim-ceiling is White Dove-all BM) and lighten it up a bit. As you can see, we have a lot of wood, stone, trim and light. Although our great room has both east and west exposures, no amount of windows can overcome the dreary Michigan skies.

We are leaning towards gray or a gray green (I know, I know..we already have gray green but something much more gray then green). We dont want a tan or purple undertones or anything too blue and no sterile whites. We dont want something so light that you need to use your imagination to see it .

My husband a) isn't big on change so whatever we do, we with live with for a good long time and b) doesnt like white trim so thinking a deeper gray for the trim.

Does anyone out there have some suggestions for us? I have gone down the rabbit hole of gray paints and am more confused than ever.
