Almost White Walls

By | Room Makeovers, Wallace Woods House | 14 Comments

White walls have been a trend for a long time now. I dig white walls. With the exception of two rooms in my old house, every wall was white. It just makes things so fresh and bright and I love how dark decor and wood contrast with it.

Now that we’re in a new house with non-white walls, I have that itch to paint many of the walls back to my comfort zone. But there’s a part of me that wants to try something a little new. I don’t necessarily WANT to dig out my old cans of my go-to white (usually Behr Ultra Pure White). It’s just not that exciting anymore. (Even though I keep telling myself, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!”)

So in the name of moving outside my comfort zone and trying something new, I’m going “almost white” on the walls, starting with our guest room project. And when I say “almost white” I mean cool and warm shades of color that read just as light and fresh as white, but are a few shades off.

The almost-white paint color I chose for the guest bedroom is very similar to the one right above. A cool, nearly-white gray. I can’t take too much credit for finding the color though. It’s also the color in our living room and I found a can in the basement. Fretting over paint colors is my own personal kind of hell so it felt good to avoid it.

I’ll share my almost-white walls soon!
