So while Edward has been working on the tub, painting has become my house task. I know we both really wanted to have our walls a neutral grey color. So I went to Home Depot and just chose a random grey from glidden…… I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into.
So, this glidden grey was called “North Beach.” From the swatch it looked super grey! I even painted a small patch on the wall. After deciding this was the color, I spent 3 days priming and painting a section of our house……… Only to come to the conclusion…… North Beach is blue!!!!!! I mean baby boy blue!!! Sometimes it looks grey in the shadows but in natural light it looks bright blue.
So this time I decided to do some homework before just painting. I went on Pinterest and YouTube and found Benjamin Moore “Grey owl.” Everything said that this was in fact…… The best grey. Owl grey has an LRV of like 63% which is really good. That means the paint will make the room look brighter and bigger. Any LRV under 50% will darken the room and not reflect light.
