Image Inspiration! 

Hello! How's the week treating you? Our dining room has been on our mind a lot lately. Picking the right paint and curtains to match our Restoration Hardware table has been a bit of a challenge. The image above has been the inspiration but to mimic it exactly would make our room a bit too dark.

So, this is our table. It looks a bit more "gray washed" in person even though it's just raw wood. We have some linen and wood chairs that match nicely, also from Restoration Hardware, but that's where it's stopped. The room functions great, but it's a grab bag of styles and it's very unfinished. So where to start...

We hopped on over to another fun tool Glidden has for free online. My Colortopia allows you to upload a photo and pulls colors from their line to help you find exactly what you are looking for. In just a few seconds we found some pretty sweet options. 

We picked the same inspirational photo we have been starting at for months and were trying to find a great grey to use that didn't feel so dense. I am really loving the Glidden Seal Grey!

Have you guys used this tool? What were your results? Did you fall in love with the results on the first try or did you keep editing until you found something you liked?

I have been sponsored by Glidden brand paint to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

I agree. The interior is an inspiration. The elements are perfect. This is genius. The green curtains are very refreshing and smooth to the eyes.
