Color Picking: You say Gray, I say Grey

Picking out the right color gray paint can be totally daunting to say the very least. They can be too green, too pink, too dark, or too light and leave you more confused with which one to choose than when you started....but have no fear... the brave designers at The Black Goose Design are here to help. We have put together some of our favorites and we are even going to tell you how and why!

SEDATE GRAY SW 6169  This color has a hint of khaki and is the perfect gray in a room with lots of sunlight.

MINDFUL GRAY SW 7016 This is the perfect go-to gray. It's not to green  and it's not to pink.

JOGGING PATH SW 7638 This is the gray that looks amazing with navy and white.

FAWN BRINDLE SW 7640 This is the best gray to pair with weathered wood and makes a fantastic accent color.

REVERE PEWTER by Benjamin Moore is a light gray with warm undertones and is perfect for an open floor plan.

KENDALL CHARCOAL by Benjamin Moore This gray pops beautifully when paired with white trim.

CAPE MAY COBBLESTONE by Benjamin Moore This color is great for small spaces like hallways, bedrooms or mudrooms.

METROPOLITAN by Benjamin Moore This gray has cool blue undertones and does well in a space that reflects modern sophistication.

The designers at The Black Goose Design are able to offer many other suggestions if you don't see one here that you like. Let us help you find comfort and ease living in a "gray area" because not all gray paint is created equal.

BIG Changes for a BIG Birthday

Some of you may know and some of you may not that The Black Goose Design is related to this guy......

This is Archibald Gardner. He is the man who the Gardner Village and Archibald's restaurant are centered around and he is turning 25 this year. (A little gray but hey...he did have 11 wives) Actually, Archibald's Restaurant is turning 25 and they are getting a makeover by The Black Goose Design. The Black Goose Design store front was purchased a few years before Archibald's opened by the same owners. It's always a pleasure to be included in exciting changes at Gardner Village.
As you well know all good remodels start with the creative process.

Then we go in and take a lot of before pictures because let's face does make you feel a little sad to say good bye to the hand painted wall murals that we all came to know and love.

 And if you're really lucky like we were you get to have the best summer intern to help out with all the planning.

We have an amazing crew of hard working movers and shakers and before we knew it we are taking midway photos of the first phase of the remodel.


 Things are looking fabulous and the entire project should be complete by mid September so watch for future blog posts with the entire remodel soon!

Happy Birthday Archibald.....we hope you like what we've done to the place!
