Painting Rooms: Let’s talk color – Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore

December 25, 2013

BM Pale Oak 1We finally got around to painting our master bedroom!  Ha ha, take that builder’s beige!   It took me a long time to pick a color and I wavered between white and grey for quite a while.  The color I finally settled on, BM Pale Oak, is actually a great compromise between the two.  It is such a versatile color too.  I could totally see this fitting with any type of decor style.  It would look equally as good with modern white furniture and pops of bright color or a more country style with linen furniture and neutrals.  If you want to go with a white room but don’t want a stark white this is an excellent choice.  It doesn’t have any odd colored undertones either.  It’s just a nice reliable pale grey.

No full room pictures yet because this room is not even close to being finished.  In fact, it is in a galaxy far, far away from being finished.  But at least we aren’t on the “dark side” anymore.  Here’s what it looked like before.  (Note: This is an MLS picture from the former owners…not my decor!)

Benjamin Moore Paint Pale OakI’m really thrilled with how this color turned out.  It is going to be the perfect backdrop for what I want to do with this room.  And it’s NOT beige!!!
