Have been to Home Depot twice now and have applied at least 6 different paint samples for a bedroom I'm turning into an

office. Reaching the frustration point as I continue to buy more and more samples and turn the wall into splotches of color to find just ONE that I like.

    That's great Jeff. Alabaster is a nice and classic color too. It was picked for the trim color in a turn-of-the-century Neal Reid home we painted. He is a famous architect here. CP

    I think a nice soft grey would be very good for your office or a light taupe which looks like a grey and and tan mix. Any color of furniture would go with those colors. I would not go with dark colors because that seems to make a room very small. Good luck and show us when you are done with it.
