My husband and I visited some model homes yesterday. We’re looking to downsize and looking forward to one-floor living. The color on the walls in these photos is very close to the color in the great room of one of the models we saw. You know I didn’t leave without asking the Realtor for the paint color. It was Sherwin Williams’ Griffin-SW7026. They had paired it with an interesting gold color (also Sherwin Williams) Mannered Gold-SW6130. I wish I’d snapped some shots. I’m going to lose my blogging credentials if I don’t watch out.
Just when I think I could go all neutral I see a room like this. There’s something about color, especially tomato red/coral tones, that makes me feel all comfy inside, and then there’s that small-medium-large pattern thing that I thought I got out of my system in the nineties.
A small-scale circle pattern dots the window draperies, while a medium pattern is found on the Roman shades, and a large-scale circular pattern covers the bedding.BHG
