Yikes - more paint chips!
Kat at Kats Whimsy, http://katswhimsy.blogspot.com/, very graciously posted one of her rooms painted with Waverly's Soft Camel so I could check out the paint color. The pictures show a beautiful warm color. She also suggested Laura Ashley Gold colors which range from 1, an almost white shade to 6, a very dark gold color. I just had to make a trip to Lowe's for paint chips. While I was there, I just happened to pick up a "few" other paint chips to add to the wall.
I've taped all the little paint chips to the dining room wall and here's the YIKES part! It's down right mind boggling to look at all those little paint chips. We usually have the drapes closed downstairs so the fur babies don't bark at every person, car, or leaf blowing down the street and it's kind of dark, so DH thinks the deeper colors are too dark. I even held Chief up to the paint chips, he's a lovey warm beige color and tried to match him to a paint chip. Well, I actually held him up to the wall, then held the appropriate paint chips next to him. Valspar Martha Stewart Sesame Tahini is a close match to Chief's fur.
The funniest part of this is the color my DH likes. It's Valspar Basket and very similar to Quiche Lorraine in the guest bedroom. He disagrees. I taped it to the wall to show him, it's close, he still disagrees. I give up!
I'm going to Lowe's to buy a quart each of Sesame Tahini, Basket, and Soft Camel then to Home Depot for a gallon of Behr's Creamy White for the baseboards and moldings. We'll see how the colors look actually painted on the wall.
Wish me luck!
