Shades of Grey

It's not easy being green.

Actually, it is easy, but I'm just tired of it is all.

It's time for a change.

This is the status quo. Painted about 5 years ago.
I still like the way it looks, mostly.

What bugs me about this photo? Mismatched bedside tables. Uneven lamp heights. Slightly off-centre headboard. We really need to attach that to the wall.

I do like the way the green contrasts with the white,
but after 5 years, it's a little tired.

And it is awfully green.

I don't know why everything looks so dark in this photo.

What's bugging me here?

A lot. Uneven blinds. Folded blanket that Oliver loved to sleep on until I folded it. Unorganized pile of books in the basket because we have nowhere to put them since we dismantled the shelves in the still-in-progress family room.

So I'm thinking about gray.

This photo was the trigger. But maybe it's a bit too pale.

I want to create some atmosphere.

Somewhere warm and cozy for the coming winter.

I love the love of the old linens against the darker gray.

I like this photo too.

But maybe a bit too dark. It's a fine balance.

This might be a winning look. I don't plan on changing
out the linens any time soon.

But which gray?

So many options...

I'm kind of digging storm cloud gray, though do I really want to wake up to storm clouds every morning?

The one in the middle "gray timber wolf" is the same as the one in the first "gray" photo". I still think it's a bit light for what I'm trying to do in the room.

What's a girl to do?

Opinions? Anyone?
