Here’s the first rolled layer in a corner…

Both Joni of Cote de Texas, and my reader Laurie used Pratt & Lambert’s

Feather Gray (or Gris de Plume for Francophiles)…It read really taupy

to me so I mixed mine with Benjamin Moore’s White Heron and tried it

out while waiting for my Sydney Harbour lime-wash Old Stone Wall

paint to come in…

Love how it’s so subtle with the old linen drapes

and antique barometer …

Tone on tone…

just textural change..

I’d love it to work with as many fickle changes in bedding as possible…

no matter how committed to gray I am right now…

Feather Gray paint chip…Thanks for all your suggestions…

Loved Ingela’s from Love your homes comment about adding a bit of burnt umber

to her white paint to warm it up. Most paint stores have tints you can get to nudge

your paint in another direction. I’ve also found colors I’m really drawn to that are

just too dark. My paint store will mix the paint at 25%, 50%, 75% strength.

Playing with lime-wash colors tomorrow…will let you know how that goes…
