I've about decided on green for Mama's bathroom. for several reason. It will probably go with the fixtures and shower curtain I already have. It will go with the neutral colors we have planned for the hall. It's one of Mama's favorite colors - green and peach.
But it's not that easy. I finally picked out 4 shades but couldn't narrow them down enough to buy the actual paint, so I went to Home Depot and had them mix four that I liked.
Got them home, Mike painted samples, and I don't love any of them.
From the above pictures, #3 looks like the winner, but on the wall, it is just too mint-y.
So he went bigger.
The last one is the one I'm leaning toward now.
This is an old picture from Roy and Eleanor's house, and the mat is probably faded by now, but this is the color I want in the kitchen when we paint it.
If I could find it, I would buy it today, but I'm about to lose hope of finding it. We painted our sunroom in Meridian Lima Bean Green and loved it so much. It may be that anything was beautiful after pulling down the grape arbor wallpaper, which is how I'm going to feel about this magnolia stuff.
I think we'll have to get away from Behr, although that's what we seem to always use because it's so convenient to go to Home Depot, and we have our own coffee cups there. Not really, but we are recognized from the paint section to the countertop section. Is that a good thing or not?
After doing a few Google searches with the names (Celtic Gray, Restful, and Valley Mist), none of them look bad in rooms that I've seen. I ruled out the darker color and probably the mintier one and will choose between Celtic Gray and Restful.
This is progress.
