Hi guys, it’s Jenny from Evolution of Style back with another contributor post and Color Spotlight. Color Spotlight is where we highlight one very versatile (and popular) paint color and today we are highlighting Comfort Gray from Sherwin Williams.
When you get the urge to give a room a refresh, most of us turn to paint as a starting point since it gives you such a bang for your buck. However, when it comes to choosing a color, that can be a daunting process (which requires input from Facebook Friends). Perhaps your walls look something like mine do right now:
Paint sample overkill. But that’s what you do when you’re on the hunt for “the perfect color”, right?
Then I chatted with Cyndy, and she suggested looking at Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams, saying that it was a very popular color in her reader poll on favorite paint colors.
I have added it to my paint swatch gallery wall.
In looking around at different uses of Comfort Gray, it does prove to be very versatile, which is what many of us are looking for when painting some of the main living areas in our homes. We want to be able to change out accessories on a whim, and still have a cohesive look. We want a neutral, but not a boring neutral, right?
Let’s take a closer look. One thing I love about this color is how well it works with wood tones. While our current home has white trim, our previous two homes had stained trim, and finding colors that I loved, that also worked with the wood trim, could be a challenge. Not so, with Comfort Gray.
Look how pretty it is in this oak kitchen.
It’s equally luxurious in this master bathroom.
It’s also versatile in the sense that you can use it in any room in your home. It’s a gorgeous, tranquil color in this master bedroom (again, working with the wood tones in the furniture):
It really gives a rich feel to this kitchen/dining space at Sweet Chaos Home, doesn’t it?
So pretty in this dining room:
A stunner in this kitchen.
I’m completely smitten with this family room.
It even works in an entry area, it’s so versatile.
For a twin nursery, I don’t think you could find a more soothing color.
Am I the only one who considers how a paint color is going to work with Christmas decor? Well, no worries, Comfort Gray works for the holidays.
