Drowning in greige choices. Please help me pick one...or two
We have just bought a benignly neglected 50's ranch/beach cottage in a seaside community in Southern California. We're in the process of a light remodel - new floors, paint, recessed lighting, moldings/trim and kitchen cabinets/appliances (the bathrooms and windows will have to wait until the summer).
I'm struck with paralyzing indecision on which greige to paint the main room (living room, dining area which flows into kitchen- its a large rectangular-ish room with 2 large north-facing windows, 1 west-facing window) (first two photos). I know Benjamin Moore's "Revere Pewter" is the greige of the moment but I think it might be too light for the space. I'm also considering "Northern Cliffs", "Gray Horse", and "Pashmina" - all by Benjamin Moore. I'd love advice on which paint to pick and with which white for the trim (atrium white, white dove, decorators white or ??).
Adjacent to the living room is a family room with stone fireplace - the paneling is going away but the fireplace has to stay for now (second two photos). This is fairly dark room with only one (large) east facing window that doesn't filter much light due to the neighboring property. I'm considering "Edgecomb gray" (BM) for this room and the interior hallway that also doesn't get any natural light. Other ideas for paint? although I'd like to stay in the grey - light taupe family, although I could be swayed toward a calm blue.
The floors throughout are being changed to a dark stained maple.
The kitchen will be to the left of the dining space and will have the same flooring as the rest of the house, white cabinets (which white??), grey-brown granite (labrador antique) and stainless appliances.
Thanks in advance for your thoughtful suggestions. I'll be back with more questions about lighting and window coverings!
