I took the plunge. I pulled the trigger, and I didn’t look back, and you want to know what?! I am LOVING it!! If you caught my post last week, than you probably already know what I’m talking about. I shared how I was contemplating a few different dark shades of gray-navy blue, and how honestly I had been wanting to paint this color for over a YEAR! Yes you read that correctly, over a year! While I’m happy to say, I made a choice, I took the leap, I went for it, and I LOVE it!! Yep, it’s true! I painted our dining room, after debating to do it for over a year, and I love the new darker color! Take a look!
If you caught my paint comparison HERE, you know I was really weighing out the options. It does come across a touch bit more blue in these photos, honestly probably because of the editing needed to keep the shadows up, but I ended up choosing Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams.
What I was afraid of was that it would make our dining room feel too dark, but because we have the white board and batten treatment on the walls, if anything it just seems to make the white appear brighter. Crazy right?! The architectural detail on our ceiling really pops now too!
The best part is, since it’s the same color as our island, it keeps a nice cohesive feel when you go from room to room, as you can see below.
