If you are not in the loop, check out "Kitchen Crashing" where I explain what is going on with my friends' kitchen.
Where we last left off (I feel like I am an old school tv show recap), Diana had bought a darker color to try.
|On left, was to be the living room and main color, right arrow points to the color that would be accent walls.|
She painted the light lavender/gray color on the hallway and didn't like the way it looked in the poorly lit space (no natural light). "It looked like grapes!" said Diana. She tried Valspar's Gravity at 75%. (I'm not sure the 25% less saturation made much difference, but whatev's.)
Although there is the slightest hint toward lavendar, it is a gray gray color.
So, she painted the accent wall color next to it, and woh-woh, it didn't work. The problem is that they are too similar. Really, she has to go darker on the accent wall now.
So, she is going to try Opal Slate from Valspar.
It's a very gray purple color. The purple is definitely there in real life.
Diana also picked floor tile. They will be going with Mountain Mist by Cascade. It's a laminate.
It looks good, but I think it sounds like I'm chilling in my dishwasher with a pop (or soda).
Demolition began yesterday. I just have an early shot of the upper cabinets coming down.
Stay tuned for more demo and back splash tile.
