I'm having a little internal argument with myself about what to paint the shore kitchen. I've narrowed it down to three options: Mint, Sage or Gray.
Mint would definitely be the more bold and brighter choice. Love mint in accents but I'm not sure if I can take a whole wall of it. I don't have a pastel personality. Not to mention the flashbacks of 1980s leg warmers in this exact shade. Hmmm...minty.
Sage is the safest choice in that I already have a very similar color (Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage) on the walls and like it very much. Why fix what isn't broken?
And then there is always gray. The old standby for good reason - it's beautiful, practical and plays beautiful with accent colors. I'm just not sure if its the right color for what I have envisioned.
glidden almost aqua, glidden soft mint, martha stewart granite gray
martha stewart sea anemone, glidden dusty miller, martha stewart driftwood gray
As you can see I did 6 tests. I think I've ruled out the granite gray for being too dark and the sea anemone for being too light (although I think those two colors together on a piece of furniture would look pretty amazing but I digress). That leaves me with Soft Mint or Almost Aqua (which are very similar); Dusty Miller (a slightly darker Silver Sage) and Driftwood Gray (a pale gray)
I know its impossibly hard to tell from snapshots like this but what do you think?
