Picking the blue for our dining room was pretty frustrating. I wish I could have taken my new car (very pretty midnight blue) into Home Depot and had them color match it. But even then I’m sure it wouldn’t have been perfect because we did try color matching for a few things and boy was it off.
Before (no idea what Bear is doing and I have no other shots so this will have to do!):
Anywho, we did try a million and settled on Behr’s Daring Indigo…the grey was a color match from Valspar’s Blind Date. We are giving it a few days to darken as the guy said and may change it if it doesn’t because sometimes it seems a little too blue for me and not dark enough. We shall see but either way I do love the combination and it’s definitely the look I was going for.
What do you guys think?
We are going to cover the walls with all the vintage gold mirrors we collect (every one is under $10, it’s a rule) and replacing the chandelier. Started to buy some of the furniture and are picking out the flooring this weekend. Again, we can’t wait!
