Okay, so I'm trying to decide what to do with the built-ins in the sitting room (the infernal sitting room). Three options:
1. The entire back of the wall white
2. The entire back of the wall Sea Salt (the same color as the dining room)
3. Just the middle section Sea Salt
I mocked up some VERY terrible, 2-minute-each (but spending more time on it wouldn't have made it any better since this is not my skill set, haha) representations of what each option might look like - one with the bare walls, the other as it might look after adding furniture and pictures to the shelves (since I want to turn it into a gallery wall of sorts).
Sea Salt is REALLY FREAKING HARD to get a good picture of, people. I cannot get it right. I might need to pull out my nice camera and give it a shot, but it just reads so different in pictures than it does online.
The walls will be Smoke Embers, the same as the rest of the house.
(Also, this post is going to vary wildly based on your specific monitor - the colors/saturation/brightness are completely different between my computer and Chris's, so if they don't look much different to you, that's probably why.)
Since these are terrible Photoshops, here's the original image as well - your mind might do a better job with these renderings than I did, ha! In these pics the back of the shelving units are white. The middle section has a couple test swatches of Sea Salt - it looks SO blue/mint in these compared to the dining room (both in pics and in real life). I think the light from the big windows is making it appear so much more saturated than the dining room, maybe? You can see the dining room through the doorway on the left.
Bonus pic thanks to Carys's amazing faces.
OPTION ONE : ALL WHITE
(My apologies to Carys's face in all of these)
OPTION TWO : ALL SEA SALT
OPTION THREE : MIDDLE SEA SALT
I really want to do something with Sea Salt because I feel like it really would complete the circle of the house colors - the kitchen is tied to the dining room with the blue/green/gray colors, the dining room would be tied to the sitting room with the Sea Salt accent, and the sitting room would be tied to the rest of the rooms with the Smoke Ember walls.
But....I'm kind of digging the all-white?????? Am I??? I think??? TELL ME WHAT I AM THINKING, INTERNET!
What say you??
