Undertones in Grey Green Paint

If you are more into warm tones, then you should consider a green with a yellow under tone.

I love the cool tones of gray, but gray by itself is a bit boring in my opinion.

Okay, don’t get annoyed at me for saying that because most of my house is gray.

I do like the color gray, but I am just tired of it and it feels stark.

Grey Green Paint That Matches Any Style

I had no idea what my style was at the time, and I was always decorating for someone else instead of myself.

When I was decorating and painting my home, I always thought what would other people like.

I was worried about picking something that would deter people from buying my home that I just bought.

Finally, I realized I wasn’t living in my own home instead a version of what I thought others would want to call home.

I ended up repainting some rooms, moving decor around, or repurposing some items to save some money.

I loved this color, so much that I repainted my gray bathroom vanity this color.

My vanity was painted a shade of gray, but I wanted to change it up.

The gray wasn’t that bad on the vanity, but it just didn’t work in my bathroom with the existing tile.
