I wanted to share a recent design win. These are rare and thus I believe should be celebrated. I’ve discovered a new (to me) Benjamin Moore paint color that I love. Kendall Charcoal. It’s dark green grey and appears to go with everything. Therefore, I’m qualifying it as a neutral. It’s so nice to be able to add color into a room without feeling overwhelming.
I LOVE color but I have noticed that anytime I photograph something colorful in my house something feels off about it. I’m a firm believer that if it doesn’t look good in a photograph it’s because it doesn’t look good in reality. Often, I will take a step back, look at a room and think, “Okay, this looks nice.” Then I take a photograph, look at it 2 hours later and think, “Oh dear God, what have I done?! This is hideous!” Strange really. I do not trust my eyes as far as I can throw them. And I’m not about to gouge my eyes out and throw them if you know what I’m saying. Anyways, back to Kendall Charcoal.
Here are some of my original inspiration pictures that convinced me to go buy a quart and paint some shit.
Does it not go with everything? It looks good on walls, doors, cabinets. You name it, Kendall Charcoal makes it look good!!
So far I’ve only used it on accent pieces but I’m getting that feeling inside my bones that makes me want to paint a room!!!
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Thanks for reading.
