Wood Smoke...

   One of the most asked questions I get is, "What color did you is your living room/dining room?" I try to respond to all the questions I get in e-mails and in comments.. but as I was browsing through this months Better Homes & Gardens I saw a whole article dedicated to the color I used. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the color. The color is Wood Smoke by Glidden. From the instant I saw this color a year ago, I fell in love. I have a slight unhealthy obsession with the color gray. Wood Smoke is the perfect neutral, & for lack of a better description, "Brown Gray". Anyways so I took a few pictures of the article.. There were some other paint colors listed in the article that are pretty amazing as well...

Wood Smoke:
"Gray is the new neatral, and it's easy to see why-this color goes with almost any other hue and makes art stand out."

Check out this article for yourself on Pg. 43 of the March edition of Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

Some Examples of Wood Smoke on my walls...

We have an open concept home.. So we carried the Wood Smoke color through the entry way, living room, dining room, & Kitchen. Have I mentioned I LOVE THIS COLOR!

Here are some other colors in the article..
Valspar: Honeysuckle Beige
Behr.Off White
BenjaminMoore.Gentle Butterfly
Glidden.Wood Smoke

So there you go, the answer to the most popular question!! Hope this was helpful!! Am I the only one who LOVES this color?? If you have used this color in your home, Go to Liz Marie Blog Facebook Page and share your 'WOOD SMOKE' photos!!

  19. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
