For the past month, we’ve been walking by this.
We had the brilliant idea to test two wall colors (since we couldn’t decide on one) in our hallway. This is the hallway color before our project began – a drab yellow that every wall was painted in the house.
We knew we’d be hanging a particular painting in the hall but we weren’t sure which color would be the best backdrop. Vinay wanted grey. I wanted purple. So we got sample paints from Home Depot (BEHR $3). After testing these colors, we decided they were WAY too bold. And although I was set on the bright purple, it just didn’t fit with the neutral calming hues in the rest of the house. So, we picked two more grey shades that were much lighter and tested them on another wall in the hallway.
