I know for sure that we are going to use Benjamin Moore paint. For the longest time I had planned to go to Lowes and paint match a BM color with Valspar paint, but my NVR loan officer highly recommended using Benjamin Moore, regardless of the higher price, and here is WHY. She told me that it is the only paint that she uses, because no matter, what you will only have to use ONE coat of this stuff. She said it goes on smooth and is very durable. You really end up paying the same amount of money on the other stuff because you have to apply more than one coat of the anyway.
Well you don't have to tell me twice!
OK, so I just wrote a 42 million word post and got frustrated, so I deleted the whole darn thing because it was all over the place. Mike saw me do it and he laughed at me. :(
I will stick to the basics. I want to use Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter on the entire main level. My plan is for a neutral kitchen/dining area and a gray/spa blue living room. Revere Pewter could work because it is in the gray category but still has enough neutral gray in it to work in the kitchen/dining area. It is also known as an EXCELLENT color for open floor plans and transitional spaces.
In some lights it is very gray and in others its more beige. I wouldn't go so far as to calling it a greige though. The first pic below is of it looking more beige, and the two following pictures is of the same exact color looking more gray.
I am so UNSURE about what to do with my open living space!
