It was a gift for my husband who likes a clock in every room, and he really likes it. I wanted something back lit but this is the only thing on the market. Too bad liquid crystal display is not viewable in brighter rooms with sunlight.

How To Choose The Perfect Greige Paint by heytherehome.com

It is like the perfect beige from the 90’s and the perfect grey got married and had a baby.

We painted almost the entire interior of our house with this neutral —so it had to be right.

Grey is definitely a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away , but no one wants the walls of their home to feel like cement right ?

There is a lot of light in this room and a ton of colors and the greige is a perfect background for everything else going on. And so as the hue gets lighter, there will be red or orange undertones. So this would be a good option for someone who wants to go a little more brown. The darkest hue definitely looks very chocolate brown, but if you look up one hue, you can see the grey tones.

I typically go one or two down from the top for my main living spaces. There are a ton of shades of grey and they can all work, you just need to know what you’re going for. If you see green in the darkest hues, you’ll have a hint of green in your lighter shades too. The trim is beautiful and elaborate but, a creamy off white. I absolutely love gray and want to paint the yellow kitchen gray but, the backsplash tile is a mixture of tan, sandy and copper colors. The flooring is dark simulating wood floor, the flooring could be changed yet. I am a disaster when it comes to picking out paint and decorating and always frustrated with my choices. It has only two small windows side by side and then the big glass door that goes out to the backyard.

We have a light gray bluish stone fireplace that makes picking out colors difficult.

We are looking for much lighter colors to go with the fireplace and our brown leather furniture, and dark furniture. I would get a small sample of that paint from your local paint store, apply a few strokes to the ceiling and leave it for a week.

I was advised to go with a beige with orange undertones to counteract the blue natural light. The kitchen units are sable brown and others are antique white. However if you have a lot of orange tones in your home (like oak) it may bring that out in this color. If you haven’t heard of greige , you’ve most definitely seen it. Greige is my favorite neutral because it goes with everything and doesn’t make me want to hurl like most beiges do. The trick is to pick a warm grey which means you want a grey with some brown it it. This space does’t get a ton of light, but the greige here doesn’t make it too dark. This will give you an idea of the true undertones that will show up even in the lighter hues. The second color from the top would probably be one that a lot of people would grab as a good neutral. Again using the darker colors on the swatch, look at number 1. In number 2, you can see a lot of grey, but you know there’s still a ton of brown in it by looking one color down. Then number 3 is somewhere between the two with definitely more brown, but still with some grey in it. Then if you go all the way up toward the top you will find a shade that would be suitable for your walls.

The living & dining rooms are painted a dark taupe ( including the ceiling). I dislike the color of the trim but, painting isnt an option. I just want to warm all that white up or should it be cooled down.

We don’t want blue paint and currently we have a chocolate brown in it. My kitchen cabinets are a buttery cream with some brown glaze in the cracks and nooks and crannies, back splash is tan and cream and brownish tiles and counter top has creams and tan and brown but some grey in it. See this article for advice on what color to paint a ceiling. But a lot will depend on your cabinet color, floor color, backsplash and what colors you want to bring out/ style and feel you’re going for. I know that may sound yuk but it’s a new kitchen and it looks amazing well we love it.

Our new furniture is medium wood on top and off-white legs. It is still a really nice beige because it does not have a lot of orange in it so you shouldn’t get that pink undertone that should be avoided. And should my trim match the white cabinets or would you suggest another shade?
