I have the hardest time choosing a paint color.
I usually know the direction I'm headed in, but then get lost in a pile of paint samples.
My dining room is a dark tan color, and I knew I wanted to go lighter, so I went to Lowe's and picked out a few sample paints. See below.
The far Left is BM Cloud 9 ( Lowe's usually does not get a true match on Benjamin Moore colors in the sample size, they can match well in a larger size, but I have found the samples to be off)
The middle color is called, Bamboo by Olympic and the far Right is called, Sidewalk by Valspar.
At first, I was drawn to the "Bamboo" color and painted one of the walls in it.
Here it is on the left side, the original tan color on the right.
I like how much lighter it is. I also like how it flows nicely with the kitchen color, which is BM Horizon Gray.
I then thought I'd try out the "Sidewalk" sample on the full wall.
Which I also like a lot.
So now I'm torn between the two colors.
Sidewalk or Bamboo. . . . Which is your favorite?
Below are the two colors together, and actually they look good together, but I can't have them both.
I'm headed to Lowe's tomorrow to pick up the paint. I think I know which one I like best, but your opinions may change things.
Thanks for your help,
