The room is hard to photograph because of the way the light comes through our windows, but I managed to get one sort of "meh" shot.
Here's the Before shot as a reminder (full post with pics is here):
Again, very hard to photograph with the lighting, but the old color was a pale yellow. Not awful, but dated.
Here's an iPhone shot of the wall next to our living room door:
The color is Nantucket Mist by Dutch Boy. They sent me two gallons of their Refresh paint, and I was highly impressed. They recommended it to me based on the odor eliminating technology (great for a kitchen). We purchased an inexpensive white Glidden primer from WalMart, as I wasn't sure about the coverage of gray over yellow.
We painted the entire kitchen (chair rail and below in white) with just a half a gallon of paint! I have plans for my dining room for the remainder. I was very happy with the coverage, and I love the color. For me, it's the perfect shade of gray. It has a lovely silvery blue undertone to it. I didn't want anything with green undertones, and I didn't want anything too warm.
I have one window treatment taken care of, two left to go. Then it's on to accessorizing!
