Need help with selecting paint colors in the gray family
I guess it's my fault for bragging too soon - but the paint colors I selected for our downstairs remodel are just not cutting it after seeing samples painted on the wall. (Thank goodness my contractor insisted they only purchase one gallon each and paint samples before beginning!)
I had selected BM-173 Edgecomb Gray for the main color to be used on all walls in the open family/living room, kitchen, laundry, and back hall; and BM-172 Revere Pewter for a darker accent color one the east facing wall in the living/family room and the breakfast nook and downstairs bathroom.
Now that they are on the wall, they seem 1) too beigy and 2) much lighter than I had expected from the sample card.
I am looking for a truer gray in medium light for the main color and medium to medium dark for the accent color. Our trim will all be painted off-white, the floors will be natural brazilian walnut with a gray/green tile in the kitchen. Kitchen cabinets are a light stain maple with walnut stain on the island.
BM Colors I am considering:
Main color: fieldstone, cape may cobblestone, horizon gray, silver chain,
Accent color: sabre gray, silver fox, bear creek
Any suggestions and/or pictures are greatly appreciated!
