For Drama, Use the Perfect Gray

bWe have found that one of the most important things when selling a house is simply to draw as many people as possible to the house.B We want any buyer to look at our completed staging projects and say, bHey my furniture would look great with this paint.bB We have also found that there are many paint colors out there, but very few have the versatility of the Spade and Archer line by Miller Paint Company. The palette only consists of five (5) simple colors.B But they have proven to be winnersb& every time.B Here is a photo from a recent project using the perfect grey.
Spade and Archer No. 4 is the drama maker. B A rich charcoal gray; this one is great for drawing the eye and make a room give the viewer a visual embrace. B Grays can often lean toward blue or brown, but not this one, it is perfectly in the middle, not too warm, not too cool. B We use it to highlight fireplaces, make small rooms feel bigger or add an accent wall and help define a focal point in a room. If you are looking for focused drama, look no farther than No. 4.
