For our bedroom, we wanted something that would look good with our white furniture. We've been having a gray moment, but after learning the hard way that only dummies paint a room without trying out paint samples, we tested a few options. After painting our apartment's entry a lovely gray that was really more of a lavender, we wanted to make sure we avoided purple undertones. As you can see by the samples, we found even more lavender grays:
When we moved in and were sleeping on a mattress on the floor in what looked like a heroin den, having a painted, put together bedroom was the only thing that kept me from freaking out over the disorganization. It didn't matter quite so much that we had boxes all over the place, or that our kitchen was in various states of disarray, because we could close the door and in that one room, everything was done.

TJ had a hankering to paint something a dark brown, so we thought this was a great place to experiment. Except for our existing bookshelves, it is a clean slate of a room - we'll have to completely furnish it. Our plan is to take advantage of the neutral brown to add some bright colors like orange. We're cray like that.
