silhouette

Benjamin Moore’s Silhouette went up on the curved wall in our family room today. Jeff sent me this first picture at work. We love it!

What you can’t see is that the color we did around the dining area and kitchen (BM’s Weimeraner) appears to be having a bad reaction with our floor and the “red” in the room because it took on a very mauve/pink tone that we are just not digging. Luckily, Karl the Painter rocks and has offered to repaint it for us, so we spent part of yesterday trying out some new samples and have narrowed it down to one or two we think will work really well. For the time being, tomorrow he’s on to the garage entry/mudroom area and bathroom just off this room, which will both be painted the same two colors you see here (Cotswald in the mudroom; Silhouette on walls and ceiling of the bathroom).

  1. It’s beautiful! I love the contrast but also blend of the two colors. I know it will make a big difference in the entire house when you get all the painting done. I look forward to seeing it!

  2. It looks fantastic, Melinda! It must feel great to make such visual progress.
    I hope you’ll have a housewarming party when you get it {mostly} done! 🙂
