Color My World Challenge - Party Time!

This challenge has been so great for me and my entry foyer.  I have to give a big, huge thank you to Suzy from Saved By Suzy and Jessamie from Bird and Branch Redesign for putting this challenge together and including me.  I actually got some stuff done, and my entry foyer looks closer to being finished than it ever has before.

I really enjoyed using my challenge color - grey.  It's a nice compliment to the red walls.

It started with some inspiration.

Then I brought in a little grey via some new art.



Next, I mixed up some homemade chalk paint and got my grey paint party on.




Last, but not least, I scored some grey fabric and covered a few photo mats to give my son's artwork center stage.




All in all, I love me some grey.  For a color I've rarely used before, it feels right at home.  I can definitely see myself adding in some more pops of grey here and there.

Be sure to check out the other bloggers included this challenge and see how they felt about their challenge color.

So now it's your turn to show us what color you've challenged yourself to use in your home.  Have you recently added any new colors in your home?  I can't wait to see!  I'll be featuring a few next Tuesday!

  5. The studs on the gray fabric are cah-razy! And since my mind is clearly on the derby, they look vaguely equestrian as well:)
