I have a theory that choosing a paint color is like dating. Some colors are waaay too aggressive and egocentric: “Hi, I’m red! I’m really, really red. Did I mention I’m red?” Other colors, like potential mates, seem promising, but are actually kind of dull when you get to know them. Then there are the Big Men on Campus — highly in demand and totally trendy, lots of gals love them…but will you tire of him in a few years?
For my laundry room, I’m looking for the Ken of paint colors: comforting, enduring and cheerful, just like my husband (cue the awwws….or the gagging).
Here’s my laundry room in need of some TLC:
I’m thinking blue, but whether it should be a gray-blue, a green-blue, a light or dark blue…that’s where the waffling begins.
Option 1 is Benjamin Moore’s Blue Wythe, a greeny-blue:
Option 2 is Benjamin Moore’s Porcelain Blue, which has some gray in it:
Option 3 is Benjamin Moore’s Labrador Blue, made popular by the tv show Modern Family:
Option 4 is Benjamin Moore’s Harbor Haze, which has a touch of gray:
And finally, option 6 is Benjamin Moore’s Blue Seafoam, which is more of an aqua:
So there you have it: six potential mates for my laundry room. Which one do you like the best?
