one is not like the other

These are not the same (in real life). Both are soooo FAB. Now the question is...... what color do I paint our place this weekend?!


Who knew there were sooo many shades of grey or is that gray


I am doing it, not hiring someone as initially planned. I've done it before, I'll do it again. And I painted a hallway for my Mom this past weekend and it was fun! {That is what I am saying now, minus paint all over my hair and arms!} HELP!

  1. Which one is cheaper? Is it bad that I said that?

    1. No! I found coupons for each, but I am painting over an awful mustard yellow so coverage is important!

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm in the same boat you are. I went to go look at paint samples yesterday, and I never knew there were so many shades of pink! Wishing you a successful home makeover! :)

  3. Do you get a lot of light in your new place? If so, go darker. If the darker color matches your sofa, go lighter for some contrast.

  4. I say Smoke Embers, but I HIGHLY recommend testing them both in your place. The light, the floors, the furniture all reflects on gray a lot and it can change completely based on what else is in the space. Our gray was beautiful before we stained our floors, once the floors were stained in turned purple.

  5. I definitely say test before paint - and then you can totally do it yourself :) I just painted all my walls - easy peasy.. I can come help if you need an extra hand friend!! As far as colors soooo hard to tell online!!

  6. Ditto to Smoke Embers. One thing I did when trying to decide something for my place was paint a couple large poster boards in each color. Then hold them up on the walls. This allows for a large sample and can help you get a feel without painting the walls. Let us know what you go with. Decisions, decisions!

  7. I went through this when I looked for the perfect grey shade for the lady bean's nursery! Am I the only one that likes the one on the left? Haha!

  8. I vote for the right one, smoke embers. But test it out first, the color might change a little bit once on the wall ;)

  10. I think the Behr Classic Silver looks more "cool toned" whereas the BM Smoke Embers seems "warm toned". It is SO hard to pick! I like them both!!!!
    I just went through the same thing! Bought 8 different "gray/grey" samples before I narrowed it to 2! I am going with Valspar's Filtered Shade, a cool toned grey! Starting on Thursday! Whoop whoop!
    Happy painting!!!! PLEASE post a picture when you finish so we can see! :)
