Yesterday, I wrote about the steps I followed to paint my dining room gray. The walls are Silver Fox by Benjamin Moore in an eggshell finish. We used their Eco Spec formula. As promised, here are the final results. Silver Fox is a very warm gray, which means it can read slightly violet in some light. It rarely reads as blue, but it certainly has a cool cast to it overall.
The above picture is the view into the kitchen. I like how the warm tones of the cabinetry are brought out next to the cool gray. The place mats on the table were a gift from my sister-in-law. She knitted them for us last year and they look great with the new gray walls. The painting to the right of the doorway is one of mine. It’s an oil painting on paper. My husband liked it so much that I had framed for him as a 1st anniversary gift. The framed print to the left of the door is a silly Schnauzer poster. I’m not sure if I’m going to hang it there or not. What do you think?
The above are views looking into the living room which is still painted a warm cream tone. The painting hanging over the sofa used to be in the dining room over the sideboard, but now that the walls are gray, I swapped the paintings. I may actually paint the entire living room in Silver Fox, but I haven’t decided yet. I may choose a chalkier, lighter gray for the living room.
I especially enjoy the way my vase collection looks against this color.
