During the summer, you may recall that I painted the chest of drawers in my foyer a soft blue. I loved it at the time, but found that it was locking me too much into that color. I also didn't have enough blue around the house to make it feel like it belonged there. I prefer a home that has the same colors flowing throughout and since I've committed to grey and white predominantly, it just felt right to repaint my chest of drawers in a grey color. I think using blue pillows and accessories is a better way for me to go at the moment if I want to bring in that color. So...............here it is sporting the same shade of grey that I have on many other pieces of furniture in my home.
I decided to do a light coat of grey so you can still barely see the blue peeking through. This gives it more of an aged look.
As soon as I painted it, I KNEW it was the right thing to do. It had been bothering me for a while. I think it would've been fine if I didn't feel it was competing with the flow of the grey and white in all of my other rooms.
I changed the accessories on top by adding a pitcher of eucalyptus and some lavender sachets.
I found the sachets from another blogger who was selling them. They smell wonderful and are packaged in some wonderful vintage grey and white ticking material.
So, I'm a happy camper now that I've made that change. No more trying to work with that blue color that I thought was so wonderful just a few months ago. See? Now you know why I have such a neutral home. I can't commit to certain colors for too long. I wish I had just painted it this color to begin with now.
Thanks for stopping by!
