  1. I am totally obsessed with my Behr’s Pensive Sky 710E-2! It is one of those great colors that sometimes looks grey, sometimes blue, and sometimes greenish depending on the time of day! I have it in my den, mudroom, stairwell and stripes in the upstairs hall!

  2. Oh, I love that pink room! sad to see it go, not many people are bold enough to do pink. I do love blue though. My bedroom is painted Sherwin Wms rainwashed and i do like it. soft, gray blue, looks really gray on the color charts but is definitely blue when painted on the walls. Good Luck!

  3. While you’re at Sherwin Willliams, pick up a sample of Sea Salt. I painted my living room in that, and love it. I actually love how it changes color throughout the day. It resembles Palladian blue, with a green – gray undertone. Good Luck! 🙂

  4. Came to your site to look at blue but loved your pink walls so much I’m now thinking pink. Pink cloud to be exact. However, I’m going to need to buy some throw pillows and new window dressing along that vein. What color are your curtains in your pink room?

    1. Thank you! I adore Pink Could and after 5 years I am actually going to adda fresh coat, but have NO desire to change. It is just so easy.The curtains are from Home Depot. I got them online as they are very long but they are from the Martha Stewart collection…If I can remember the name I will send it on…something Ocean like i think???

      1. And what color are those curtains? They kind of look like a bluish silver on my screen. I have a neutral beigey gold couch so trying to figure out how I can tie it all together.

Thank you for visiting My Old Country House...I’d love to hear what you thinking. Let me know in the comments. And Have a great Day!
