Maybe the second time you ge the color right......

This post makes me think of the YHL book, when it talks about how in their first house they wanted to paint every room a different color in the rainbow hah!! and how in their second house they stay in the lighter side of neutral colors. Now I don't necessarily have all the colors of the rainbow, and the green in my living room is not bad, but the picture I had of my living room has change from what I think I wanted about a year and a half ago. I now know that I want more of the blues, cream colors, more calm and get my color from fabrics and accents.

Well that took me to Lowe's this weekend to get a few samples and try them on my walls since they always look different in your room, and depending on the lighting in your home.

Two of the main ones I liked ended up looking the same in my walls even though they were different shades and brands, one was from Valspar the other one Olympic.

I also try them in different locations of the living room since it looks different from one place to the other.  The fireplace was the one the made the most differences since it's against the white, but they still looked the same, and not as lighter as I want. The third one I got was way too dark almost a teal, so I need to look for other options

 It also help me to put the paint against the curtains, it makes a big contrast on them now, with the green walls the curtains got lost in the place although I'm not so sure I still like them once I paint the walls, so I might need to start looking for fabric hah!!!

Here's a close up, It really doesn't look bad, but at night the color looks to dark; almost a dark grey, is so funny how light changes everything.

Now if I zoom in all the way to cut off the green, you can really tell the differences.

This color is an option if I don't find a lighter color that is not to light to almost a white, so I will keep it in mind.

That's what is going on around here lately.

What do you guys think of the color.
