|Please post pictures of your grey rooms. Has anyone used a soft neutral grey in their bedroom. If so please post mfg and the color name. thanks !|
|I haven't used it in my bedrooms, but I'm trying to find an entry and living room color. I'll post my test swatches in case you like one of them. |
The entry door wall is Foggy Bay by Do It Best (they use SW paint). It has a green cast and is somewhat similar to Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage.
The wall next to is Silver Screen by SW. A light taupe-y gray.
This color is my own experiment using a Pastel Base (Do It Best) with a measure of every color except black. My own poor man's attempt at something similar to full-spectrum. I work at a hardware store and was able to experiment with some paint we had to trash after someone drove into the front of the store. Very exciting. Anyway, it takes on a different cast depending on the lighting. Hints of green, or blue, or violet at different times of the day.

|This is Behr Ultra's Natural Gray in our bedroom. My son only thinks this is his room. |
|Wow! I love Serena & Lily's Wharf! That is a striking color that may match the grey and yellow silk panels from half priced drapes they have. I ordered a swatch from them. This is really pretty.|
|I will give this a BUMP by saying that I still haven't seen that perfect grey! One that has colour but is not too dark, more light, more of a silverish, true grey. |
|Nanny if you're still out there, your bedroom is beautiful! I had now idea how much I liked grey and yellow together.|
|Blue? Gray? Not sure but I love this color and am copying it for my guest room. In progress now. |
|Here is Glidden seal grey mixed in BM paint. |
