The Elegance of Beige

In my previous post I commented about painting some of my rooms in
Sparkling Sage from Valspar. 

Nice, right?

Well...there's a boring side of me you can say. 

The walls that won't have the super cool and awesome
Sparkling Sage 
will get a dose of two shades... 

Dessert Fortress by Valspar...
and two shades lighter of that color which is basically, 
you guessed it...

BEIGE. ...

okay, you can stop yawning now. 

But I think it's actually a very nice and cool
(because it has gray undertones) color.

When on the wall, Desert Fortress
and the 2 lighter shades look like this 
(depending on the time of the day, 
the amount of light in the room and 
where that light is coming from - north, south, etc.):

For all the blog friends out there who love beige and
are proud of it, I join your ranks.

Yay for Beige!

So, are you a fan of beige, indifferent,
or do you fall asleep just
thinking about it?

Much love...

    GRAY = GREIGE and I am mad about it. WHY? It serves as a soft backdrop for EYE-POPPING objets d'art such as chandeliers and other vintage finds! BEAUTIFUL MY DEAR.....I am in total agreement here! Anita

  5. Sometimes when I walk in my house and have to put my sunglasses back on... I admire you and your beige. LOL

    I have totally surprised myself by painting 3 walls in my bedroom white. Does that count? Of course... the 4th one is black. The biggest one... then I have some red lockers and various other things...
    the important thing is, I have 3 white walls.

    Can't WAIT to see your beige walls! xoxoxo
