Have you all seen Joanna’s apartment tour?
Gorgeous! I love so much about it, from the natural brick and wood-stacked fireplace to the built-in bookshelves and abundance of framed images. But what I love most is the gorgeous muted gray blues that pop up throughout the space. Not surprising, then, that Joanna is providing the main inspiration for painting my new office chair. We started out with pretty much the same thing:
Jenny from Little Green Notebook, the design genius behind this space, spray painted the chair with what she thinks was Krylon’s “Medium Gray.” This was the result:
Gorgeous! Unfortunately, Krylon doesn’t list a “Medium Gray” color on their website, and the chair at least appears to be more blue than gray (to me, anyway!). The closest option seems to be “Mountain View:”
There’s also “Stonewashed Denim”
…and “Classic Gray.”
Do those look too dark to you, though? The only other possibility is “Peekaboo Blue,” but that seems too bright:
Which brings me to my two questions for you today:
1) Should I paint the chair or leave it as is?
2) If I should paint it, which color would you recommend? One of these blue grays, a different blue gray, or something more neutral, like white? Seleta suggested a few gray blues in this post, which I’m also pondering…
Let me know what you think!
