Happy Birthday Sandi and here's to many more! Love the little silver pot:)

Personally, I like grey that has a hint of lavender to it...but that's just me:)

Happy Belated Birthday Sandi!

Good luck with your painting! I haven't painted any rooms gray yet, so I'm of no help to you in that area. I'm sure you'll find the perfect color. :)

Happy belated birthday Sandi! What a sweet gift from your friend, too. Great color combo - cream and grey. Enjoy sprucing up your room this fall - I know it will turn out amazing.

Happy Birthday. . .May your year be a continual celebration of YOU, dear friend!!!

Funny you should mention shades of gray. I, too, am preparing to make a change in the Guest Room. Yesterday, I went to our local Sherwin~Williams and picked up a trifold sampler called Essentials Classic and Contemporary. Inside are amazing choices including grays, taupes and grayed hues with undertones of violet, blue and green. I was thrilled; as I had read in a back issue of Traditional Home Magazine that gray with a green hue reflects the light within the room.
I'm leaning towards Wordly Gray Sw 7043 and Agreeable Gray SW7029.

I'll be watching to see the evolving of your bedroom, dear one!!!

Wishing you a lovely day

happy birthday to you! I love steel gray but think that's definitely too dark for a bedroom. A friend has it in her dining room and it is so beautiful. Best wishes, Tammy

Ivy and Elephants said...

Happy birthday, Sandi! You look amazing! Only the truly gorgeous can tell their age and get compliments!
The chasing on the teapot is so beautiful!

Happy birthday! Such a pretty pitcher and the flowers are gorgeous . I like farrow and ball - elephant ear and Benjamin Moore also has some gorgeous colors;)

Rebecca said...

Birthday Blessings Sandi!
Painting not my favorite thing to do... and I am also in the middle of it. Good luck, I can't seem to find the right grey. I like brown in mine.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What a pretty way to display your roses, I love tarnished silver. Happy belated 50th birthday, hope it was a fun one.

Seems grey is the color this year.

Melissa/Piney Rose said...

Two of my favorite things - white roses and old silver! Just lovely. Hope you had a wonderful birthday. You and I are the same age - I'm just a tad bit older, birthday in April. As for a good gray paint, I love Sherwin Williams' Functional Gray...

June said...

Happy, happy birthday dear Sandi!!! The rose bouquet is lovely. I think I told you before---but I'm telling you again how much I love your header!!!! I love that display!
