Grey is one of my favorite colors

My mother would agree with this, she always tells me I dress like a mourning dove because I am always wearing grey.  Let me say this, it goes with everything and can really look fantastic with a little blush on your cheeks.  Big, big fan right here.  So it's no surprise that when Shanna uttered the words Sherwin Williams comfort GREY when we were talking about colors for one of the rooms in her house I had to test it out for my kitchen.  It.Was.Perfect.

I wanted a calming color that would go nicely with my other two rooms that are painted Sherwin Williams rice grain.  Comfort grey has a slight blueish tint to it if you ask me so it blends really well.  Even my mom liked the grey/blue color!  The funny thing is that the entire paint strip the has comfort grey (kitchen), sea salt (in my bathroom), oyster bay (this one is a little too dark for my house but still beautiful) all resemble sea glass colors.  This is exactly the feel I am going for in my house, a beach house in the suburbs of Philadelphia!  So I am pretty much just saying this color could not have been more perfect for me and my home.

Oh and as a side note, no matter how small your kitchen is, it will not take you an hour to paint it like I thought it would.  I am not sure what was in my corn flakes to make me think I could paint at mach speed but this tiny room took me six long hours, insane I know!

Enough talk, let's see some pictures!


After a touch of comfort grey...oh and one of our readers, Heather, requested a shot of my barstools at the counter so I added that for you below! I love how the grey walls and black barstools go with the framed organization board that I painted black to match, everything is coming together so nicely.

After shots, and I swear that coffee mug has not been sitting out since those before pictures were taken!

 Love, love, love.  What is your favorite paint color in your house to date?

See you swoon,


  1. I love it! It's very serene. And thanks for the barstools pic :)

    My favorite color in my house right now is the bold peacock blue in our master bedroom. It was so out of our comfort zone when we did it, but I'm so glad we did. It's glamorous and grown-up color, and it makes me happy every time I walk into my bedroom.

  2. Pretty! The new gray looks so good with your birthday present curtains too.

    My favorite color is the dark greenish blue I painted the nursery more than 6 years ago. It's the only room that felt perfect immediately after I finished painting.

  3. Much better, such a pretty colour - love your bar stools too!

  4. My whole house is grey! My kitchen and bathroom are dark grey and everything else is light grey. Love it but I need some colour in here! Your kitchen looks great!

  5. I am so glad you all love it so much and I agree, it goes so well with my dining room curtains and everythign in my house thus far! I am very happy with how it sets off the black stools and the organizational wall too. Now I need to find a place to use this color again...maybe that insane purple room on the second floor :)
