Elephant Gray


We have lived in this house 3 years and 3 months and are on our 3rd color of paint. We had tan then brown and now elephant gray. I love it. It looks so pretty in person with the white fireplace and trim and my color furniture. We aren't done but had to show my friends. The house is a mess and nothing on the walls. We had a quilt hanging behind the tv but Steve said he likes it better without the 'blanket' on the wall. So now what do I do? Yes that is my small 7ft tree...it looks so tiny in there with the 13-15ft ceilings but now the year I buy a big one the Air Force will move us so I am sticking with this one. I hope you can tell it's gray. Suggestions for what to hang on the wall welcome! Oh I was thinking a big clock....Bethany are you reading this? I LOVED how in your living room in Germany you had just a big clock on the wall and that was it...it was stunning and thought about that. And curtains...what do you think I should do. Do I need them? Poor Steve just got home and is doing all this for me...I had no plans on doing this...I sure need to be nice to him.

I love the color! It was exactly how I pictured it would turn out! I think the clock is a must. Not sure about curtains. Are they really a necessity?

Loved catching up with you the other night after your painting binge hun! Why oh why do we always wait so long between phone calls?!? ;)
I love how the grey color turned out. It is just wonderful and so 'you'!
I think a huge wall clock would be fun. Maybe Steve can find you one for Christmas?

Love the color! Very elegant! I've got an awesome new big clock! I need to post it soon. It's green, but could be painted and would look great!

I don't think i've actually commented on your blog before, but i love visiting your site. You are so amazingly talented! I wish you could come give my home some of your magic!

I love the gray paint color! We are actually getting ready to paint our son's room some form a gray (haven't decided yet). Do you mind me asking what was the color of brown you had in your living room before you painted it gray? I loved it and am thinking of painting my living room again (shhh, don't tell my hubby!).

Oh, I love it! Your living room looks so beautiful! That is a perfect shade of gray, too! I think curtains would be a really nice addition to the room, but if you don't need ones that are for privacy's sake, what about ones that frame the window, like a swag of some sort? I know whatever you decide to do, the room be be gorgeous! :)

I wish it weren't so dark and rainy here all winter. And fall. And spring. Or I would definitely paint a room in gray! The closest I got to this was using it as an accent color in our bedroom! :)

Have a good night! :)
