Lydia and I have been pondering about something all day.

Thinking about it has put Luke into a semi-comatose state.

And Ian is clearly distressed about this dilemma we are facing. We need your opinion to get things back to normal around here.

Ever since we moved into our house I've wanted to repaint the room above. Well, I am going to be getting some new furniture/storage solutions for this room, so I figure now is the time to do it. I just can't decide what color to paint it. I want a light color to open up the room, since it's rather small, and it butts right up against the yellow in my kitchen so it has to semi-coordinate with that. Here are the two options so far:

What's that? You can't tell a difference? Look again, my friends.

Light green on top--Tyler's favorite, but he likes the room the way it is. I don't mind it, but it might not feel like I changed much since it will still be green.

Greyish/bluish on the bottom--grey is the new "hot" neutral color. I've seen some cool rooms in grey and yellow color schemes (here , here, and here for those of you interested in checking it out) but I'm not usually super trendy--can I pull it off?

Opinions please.


  1. I like the grey. Light Green reminds me of puke and hospitals.

  2. Go grey. I am having the same dilemna. I want to change the green just off the yellow kitchen we have. I also love the trendy grey, but feel this isn't a trendy house, but also it wouldn't match my other colors going on (brown and cream). I'm excited to see the new storage and furniture!

  3. Grey! Sorry Tyler.
    You can pull anything off....

  4. I have two gallons of SW Ivorie leftover if you're interested. But if I could have circumvented spousal opinion I would have completely redone my house with the gray and yellow and cream. We painted the downstairs bedrooms taupe. Come see.

  5. I like the grey as well! The bright yellow accents are really great. I can't wait to see the before and afters!

  6. Grey grey grey! Grey is my favorite wall color and it not only goes with yellow, it goes well with pretty much every other color out there.

  7. Go with can pull it off. Just jump in and do it.
