------to get a photo showing the true color of my new paint. I gave up until this week's snow did something lovely, it reflected through our glass back door into the front entry, and this is just about the true color, Hale Navy.
I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
These walls were already a dark charcoal so not a
huge difference - just enough that I notice
the subtle change and it works perfectly for me.
This area does not feel overly dark. There are two
large mirrors on opposite walls which bounce the light
around, plus the glass panel in the front door. Evenings,
we light the small candelabrum with crystals to
brighten the corner, and there is an overhead light.
Not sure I would paint an entire large room this dark,
however it seems to work in a small space - I love the warm
feeling when I come through the door. Rooms leading off the
hallway are painted off-white and are quite bright.
Don't be fearful when trying a new paint look. It's not
that expensive and just remember it doesn't have to be
permanent, you can always paint over it again!!!
