Our Boston Kitchen | Before and After
When we first moved into our Boston home a couple of months ago, I was instantly itching to redo the kitchen first. Beyond the cosmetic issues, we went from having a ton of space and storage in California to having very little in Boston. I really missed my old kitchen setup, which included a hanging post rack, knife strip, butcher block and spice racks that helped maximize the space and put everything I needed nicely into one spot, so I decided to incorporate all of that again here.
See that final color? It took a little trial and error to get there, but we did. More on that below! Its Silver Bullet by Behr, which is a beautiful grey with no purple, green, yellow, brown or red undertones—just a pure grey. Worth the hassle, because we loved the final result.
The pot rack we used is here.
The butcher block is from IKEA, although Im not sure they sell it anymore.
First step was to spackle, sand and prime.
One coat later, we knew we were stuck with doing at least three coats.
Four coats later
Now here is where we ran into trouble! I had impulsively picked out a pale blue paint (Monet by Behr) that looked light purple at some points in the day. Not the look I was going for.
I kept trying to make it look less purple-ly in my head. I looked it with one eye closed. Still purple. I added some red and navy accents throughout the rest of the kitchen. Still purple. I drank a beer and took another look. It was still purple!
After a few days of trying to convince myself otherwise, I knew this was a disaster. It was definitely not the kitchen I had in my head. This space was supposed to feel cozy and welcoming, but ended up starting to make me feel legitimately angry every time I went into the room.
So I went back to the drawing board, looking for a blue that wouldnt have a hint of purple in it. It was really hard and I agonized over what to do!!
I hopped to browns and then grey, choosing several samples before I made my choice.
Silver Bullet was the winner!!!
Im so looking forward to getting back in the kitchen to cook and blog, and love the warm space we created. Now I have the entire rest of the house to repaint, woo!

So here’s the thing about choosing a quiet blue or grey-blue paint color: you really need to forget about those paint swatches with the word ‘blue’ in the name. Stick with the grey range to avoid ‘nursery baby blue’ factor and cloying, too bright blues that read unsophisticated and give you a headache. Grey-Blue Paint Color Ideas: Timeless Grays for Interiors provides paint color ideas to get you started on your quest to choose samples!

10 Grey-Blue Paint Color Ideas: Quiet, Timeless Grays for Walls & Furniture
I shared the calm blue-grey color I used to paint the kitchen cabinets in the Arizona kitchen we gave a serene makeover, and today we’ll explore more possibilities for furniture, cabinets, walls, trim, and decor.
There is nothing like old, peeling, fading, vintage Frenchy looking blue-grey colors like we see on DreamyWhites’ glorious cupboard…
The quest to find the perfect blue-grey paint color for your project is not necessarily going to be quick and easy.
This time last year, I experimented with paint color after paint color on the walls of my little pass through, builders grade laundry room here at the fixer upper.
I hope these paint color ideas save you time and sanity!
1. BEHR Classic Silver
Let’s face it, finding a just right gray that works well with your room’s unique lighting is not always easy. I loved how finding the right grey for our Arizona getaway kitchen transformed and softened that space.
Paint Color Tip
I can’t stress enough how important it is to try samples before buying a whole gallon. Home Depot ships them for FREE so I have included links throughout!!!
The amount of light in your room affects how the paint color presents in a specific space. Behr’s Classic Silver in my Arizona kitchen with intense yellow sunlight appears to be a soft, blue-grey. In another home, it reads cooler:
When I tried Classic Silver in my window-less laundry area in Chicagoland, it read too dark and not nearly as blue.
But you know what they say about failure, right?

2. RUST-OLEUM Aged Gray
Here’s a pretty gray chalk paint to transform decor or furniture when you’re after a romantic, European inspired hue.
Here’s another testimonial for the joy of chalk paint:
3. BEHR Sterling
This is the color I chose for our little laundry room pass through. It looks great with beadboard panels installed horizontally and painted Benjamin Moore White OC
Don’t you appreciate seeing images of interior doors painted a color?
4. FARROW & BALL Pavilion Gray
F&B says this classic shade of grey with subtle blue undertones is reminiscent of an elegant 18th century Swedish hue and adds “a sense of spaciousness.”
I say…come to mama, gorgeous.
When I imagine a just right, subdued, quiet, pale grey blue paint color for trim, Brooke and Steve Giannetti’s Patina Farm project springs to mind. Only trouble is they mixed a custom color for the project!
Fortunately, I devoured every single post blogged by Brooke during the construction of Patina Farm, and she shared that their custom trim color is close to Pavilion Gray by Farrow & Ball!
We pause for this timeless tour!

5. BEHR Light French Gray
6. FARROW & BALL Blue Gray 91
You’ll note a paint color can look vastly different depending on the context and light!
You could always build a miniature model of your kitchen to try out Blue Gray on kitchen cabinets!
Farrow & Ball Blue Gray 91
“With its subtle mix of blue, green and black pigments, Blue Gray creates the most relaxed of rooms that feel as if they have always been there. It is a cooler, more weathered version of French Gray and has the same almost magical quality of gently shifting between blue and grey depending on the light and time of day.”
Blue Gray by FARROW & BALL…look at those tranquil hued steps!
7. FARROW & BALL Manor House Gray
Farrow & Ball Manor House Gray: “A cool architectural grey named after the houses traditionally inhabited by the local lord, Manor House Gray is a definite grey which retains its colour in all lights, especially when contrasted with Wevet. Cooler and cleaner in feel than Charleston Gray, this Architectural Neutral is very popular in hard-edged contemporary homes that are conducive to minimal living and is often used alongside the more dramatic Railings.”
8. BENJAMIN MOORE Silver Gray
9. BENJAMIN MOORE Silver Lake
Benjamin Moore Silver Lake is such a dreamy, peaceful, uplifting shade of calm!
BEHR Silver Screen
Here’s a pretty blue-grey with which I have experience, and I almost chose it for cabinetry I painted. Unfortunately, the room’s lighting was awful, so purple undertones in the color made it too bright. This would certainly not be a problem with warm yellow sunlight streaming upon this hue!
It often helps to see the same room painted in different shades of a similar color. In the room above, walls are painted BEHR Silver Screen, and in the same room below, the color is Silver Bullet.
They may look similar (and they are!), but when you expand the photos, you’ll see how Silver Bullet has more depth and less blue undertones.

The guy-with-the-bandage also reacted sensitively to everything that was happening, they say, what are you doing there with my girlfriend's mouth. To which the guys answered him with laughter I felt that Beth began to insert a dildo into me, and Lin began to help her. They began to move the dildo back and forth, while fingering my clitoris and inserting their fingers into my ass.My 4 Favorite Gray Paint Colors
