Color Wheels

I've carried this tiny cut-out from a magazine with me for about five years.

I love everything about this room: the colors, the furniture arrangement, the cozy and bright feel. Most of our furniture and artwork mirrors this look with warm wood tones and mostly neutral furniture with colorful accents. So if I'm such a fan of warm colors, why am I trying to find the perfect shade of grey?

Beats me. I narrowed the gray paint search down to two colors and painted squares all throughout the house. I'm so glad I did because, as it turns out, I dislike both colors. They're too pale and chilly, not at all what we're looking for.

Back to the drawing board. Er, paint department at Lowe's.
