Paint color: Gray

Beautiful examples of gray walls with wood and white accents. Photos taken when I was at Arhaus.

I matched up a wall color I think is pretty close to the one on their wall…. I’ll dig it out of my purse

later :)  I’m back….I found the color in my purse that I think best matches the wall color above.

I have 2 that seem really close.  Valspar- Wavery Classics: STORM  W39004A

The other color is Sherwin Williams : Gauntlet Gray -SW7019  they look a little muddier in person.

Both are really fantastic.




Pottery Barn Paint Colors: Buxton Blue

by Sharon on February 9, 2011

Have you seen the new paint options on the Pottery Barn Website? It is so cool! You just go on the website here and in the lower left corner  there is a paint can and brush and wording that says: Designed just for us…Shop and learn about paint. So click that and it gives you options to pick a paint or pick a room. They give you painted room examples for their 2011 paints.

I really like the Benjamin Moore Buxton Blue and I’m not really a blue fan. I saw it painted on one of the walls behind their register this past summer and wrote down the color. It isn’t a new color because it is in the 2009 fan deck. They must be keeping it around because it’s so popular.. It matches perfectly to the PB blanket on my sofa. Here is their inspirational photo

Buxton Blue – HC-149

Here’s my blankie :) the color of the blanket looks darker in the photo than in person.
