Inspired by, I don’t know what—boredom maybe?—I painted my black mantle white, primed the black and white striped bookcase-backs, and scoured the internet for inspiration. Aiming for a beachy feel to carry over from the kitchen tiles into the den, I was drawn to these images, and the bottles above.
Lovely, no? So how did I end up with this?
So, like, I guess it’s back to the drawing board.
On the wall: Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter – always a sure thing
In the running: Benjamin Moore Iced Green, Annapolis Green, Crystal Blue, Palladian Blue (which is more green than Annapolis Green), White Rain, Blue Bonnet, and maybe In Your Eyes; also, Sherwin Williams Dewy, Glimmer, Window Pane, or Rainwashed (which I’m telling you in person looks gray). And then you have to be careful not to go so light and clear that it looks like a baby boy’s nursery. If you have wisdom to share, please do so. Thanks!
