50 Shades of Grey: Sherwin William 7000s

I know what you’re thinking but the 50 shades I’m referring to are colors not the character. For the past few years I have really enjoyed using all shades of a grey for back drops in my client’s homes. My most favorite grey shades can be found in the Sherwin William 7000 Series. Below are some of my top picks. 


A couple tips when selecting and sampling paint color. Paint looks different at different times of the day. Sun can have a big impact on how the paint shows up on a wall. I like to sample paint on a white piece of cardboard, preferably 12″ x 12″ in size. You can easily move the cardboard piece around without having to paint directly on your walls. Be mindful when sampling paint. Most manufacturers only sell sample sizes in a satin or eggshell finish. So if you are aiming for a flat finish know that the sample may have a little more sheen than what you specify in the end. 

On Trend: Heavy Metals

Not sure about you but my affinity for all things metallic is growing everyday. We have become accustom to brushed nickel, stainless steel, chrome and oil rubbed bronze but brass and gold are making a strong and not to be ignored debut.

Don’t worry, its not the brass and gold of yesteryear. The reinvented finishes finishes of today have a contemporary spin making it suitable for all types of uses from pillows and accessories to faucets and lighting.
