Thank you, your submission has been accepted
Though I love the SECRET color, I thought for sure it would darken the room to a dungeon-esque point, but you still have lots of natural light thanks to all those windows in the reading room and the two doors in the dining room. And it really pops against that stark white trim, too.
Quick question. I just mentioned the two doors in your dining room, and I know you have at least half a dozen other doors that wrap around the first floor of your house. How many times have you actually entered or exit through those dining room doors? How many doors do you actually have?

How many of them do you actually use? I was hesitant about the paint samples but it goes so well with the white, you are definitely right about dark colors needing brightness. You are doing a beautiful job with your house. I really like seeing the difference with the picture where you can see the ugly tan colored one in the background.
It just stands out so much better. Why would anyone paint their trim tan…good job on the painting. I think I need a paint spray thing now! Love that dark color! I was thinking of something similar to that for our bedroom. Something dark and cozy. My secret room would be similar to yours with endless plush pillows and blankets but I would have to include a TV, a cupcake switch that would give me endless cupcakes, a window for gazing, and a canvas and paint in the corner. Ooh love the dark paint—so purty! I always just leave that part for hubby. LOL I knew you would pick the gray before I even scrolled down!
Do I read your blog too much or what?!! Do you use a high gloss or semi-gloss for your trim paint? I love how it gleams in the photos.

I have a house full of white trim, too. You are so right about the huge white moulding anchoring a rich dark color. I love that southern, classic charm in your mouldings. Our place was built in the 80s in a more angular, modern vein, and I just want chair rails and mouldings everywhere but I have to be cognizant of the actual architecture we have to work with.
I want frames over every doorway. The room turned out beautiful! I agree, the high amount of white balances the dark quite well. Can I have that room for my secret room? Are you still doing photography apart from things for posts? And now we have to paint it back…but I digress. Th is has completely changed my mind. And endless pizza roles. Love this color, if I change my mind from the navy, gray is definitely my second choice!
This would look gorgeous in a kitchen with all white cabinets too. WHAT a difference!! Love the colour and love the white trimmings. That color is perfection! Literally jaw-dropping. I LOVE how crisp and classy the trim work looks now that it is white… and that dark gray is so swoon-worthy. Good choice. I decided to take this year off. We have five doors that go onto our front porch besides the center double front doors …and we use one. The one that is on the side of the house to get to the little side porch area. We actually went back and forth before about it…in the end, I liked the white.
Probably not. No door knob! Just make it hinge so that you could pull the frame and go up! I hope you have all the locks keyed to the same master. Can time stop in our secret room? Contrast is so sexy! Hi Katie — where did you get the yellow curtains in the first pic? They are everything. While I adore the gray, my husband and I are looking for more of a champagne color.
I love that one. This is the view back into the foyer and the staircase and reading room. Comments So very classy! That color is beautiful! Seems perfect for sweet candlelight dinners! Love the dark gray — it looks so inviting. It looks so sophisticated and fun at the same time! Ahhh, I love the dark color with the white trim! I am in love with all of that molding you have in your home! Love that gray! Totally gorgeous with all the fabulous white trim! That looks really great against the white! Awesome color choice. That dark color looks absolutely beautiful in that room. Hey katie, what color are you using for the trim???!!!
I wish I lived in GA!! I want your old table and chairs!!! I love the color! Looks amazing! The white trim really pops! I love the contrast of the colors! Love the color! Oh man, I just drooled all over my computer after seeing your space! I love this room! Our whole interior is done in gray and I love how the white pops! You know me too well!

I would race home from the school bus to watch that! I think they are ten foot. I apologize KB. It was no biggie! I made them. Sorry I wish I could be more help! I am so sorry!
