Out of the THOUSANDS of colour consultations that I’ve done there are ALWAYS a handful of faves – there’d be 2 handfuls, but a girl has to hold a glass of wine ya know.
And this dining room is DEFINITELY one of those faves BECAUSE it has dark wood trim – AHHH, THE DREADED DARK WOOD TRIM – ye shall dread no more. With Pinterest and Houzz jam-packed with white painted wood, I was excited to work with a room that had dark trim and dark wood beams, to figure out a way to make it look modern and beautiful – rather than dated and drab…consider it DONE!
Before, this room had the right BONES, but the warm paint colour wasn’t doing any justice to the dark wood or the room itself, it looked a bit suffocating.
After, with the PERFECT new paint colour and flooring this room looks COMPLETELY different.
That church pew SLAYS me. I had a church pew in our last home and loved it, however Tim was NOT such a big fan and since I ALWAYS listen to Tim (said nobody ever) I sold it.
The styling was okay the first time around, but the SECOND time around she TOTALLY nailed it!
And who is ‘she’? She is Rachel from Gingham and Grace who is just a lovely soul and has a great sense of style! If you love this dining room then you’ll LOOOOVE her blog (and she’s a cutie-patootie).
In Rachel’s E-Design consultation, I suggested several colour ideas for her to choose from (along with some explanations and chit chat) and was very happy that she decided on Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. Agreeable is a light gray/greige. If it had just a weeee bit more beige in it, I might call it a greige, but really, it leans a bit more to the gray side, so it’s more like a very warm gray. With an LRV of 60, Agreeable Gray was the perfect depth for this space AND the perfect colour.
