|Coutesy of Paper Mulberry|
I , myself, have a beautiful buffet that is painted a really soft grey color. It is certainly a change from the norm, that's for sure.
Whether it is a large wall(s) or simple some accessorizing pieces within your home, you can't go wrong with something grey. Plus there are sooo many different shades, it would be very difficult to decide on which grey is the "right" grey.
That's why I love sites like Paper Mulberry where they show you actual colors in use. Visit their site for some really great photos and ideas for the cottage or farmhouse in your life.
