Like any good new homeowners, we became really familiar with paint colors. My purse notebook was full of swatches in various shades of tan, grey, white and black. After taping them to our walls, turning off the lights, turning on the lights, checking what they looked like with lamps, overhead lighting, sunlight, we finally made our decision.
Foggy Mist, Faded Burlap, Ultra White, Dark Kettle Black
We got testers and went home to paint.
And discovered that Foggy Mist Grey is actually blue. (I know, it probably looks grey on your computer. You’ll just have to trust me on this one.)
And that Faded Burlap looks tan (what we intended) in the bathroom:
And grey in the bedrooms. (Again, trust me on the difference. It’s way obvious in real life.)
Fortunately we like both shades of the tan option.
And we found a few grey with less blue in it: Wood Smoke!
