MEET MY FOODIE FRIEND (UPDATE)
This is Aimee.
she is my 12 year old blogger friend and a fellow foodie
who has, appropriately so, a food blog
I don't have the time to blog about food,
but I do have years of collected recipes
and then, well, there's Pinterest
my food bulletin board is huge!
oh, how will I ever get the chance to try these recipes, let alone share them?
I'll have Ms. Jones try some out for me.
She has been baking since she was 3....
she is probably better at it than me...
and she's getting darn good at photography, too...
check out one of her delicious blog posts here
(we may make this a regular feature - especially if I get to taste test!)
QUESTIONS FROM READERS....
|Gray Mirage - Benjamin Moore (full strength)|
If everything is looking too dark or turning beige, it is probably the lighting in your home. First make sure you have adequate lighting that you can control - most of us don't - both overhead and task lighting.
Next, look for a gray with a slight green to blue undertone - not enough to actually look green or blue, but enough to stop it from turning beige. Gray Mirage may work for you because it has a slight green undertone. Here are a few more to try that are both lighter in hue and lacking a beige undertone - but that still have that beachy feel:
|Gray Owl, Benjamin Moore|
|Horizon - Benjamin Moore|
|Harbor Gray - Benjamin Moore|
|Classic Gray - Benjamin Moore|
|Halo - Benjamin Moore|
|Moonshine - Benjamin Moore|
|Pale Smoke - Benjamin Moore|
|Silver Crest - Benjamin Moore|
These are all lighter and for the most part have less beige undertone in them. Try some on the walls.
Can you recommend a white to match bottom cabinets in kendall charcoal as well as a warmer neutral for the walls? BM has so many paints and I want to go with a safe combination.
My go to white with Benjamin Moore is White Dove. It never turns yellow and it isn't a stark, cold white. It looks especially nice with grays, so Kendall Charcoal should be great with it.
Try Revere Pewter on the walls. It is a light gray with a beige undertone - it will have that warm undertone, but still be neutral and in the gray family.
Another to try is Ashwood. Both should go with nearly everything you throw at it! Good luck!
