The Perfect Grey Paint

Tara and husband Josh painted their house Barley Beige by ICI Paints.

"We wanted to paint our house grey but our friend Brie Gillespie, an architect and designer, warned us to be careful. Grey is a tricky colour because, depending on the light in the room, it often appears different. To make a long story short, we ended up painting our house a shade that looked purple! We had to make a desperate call to our friend come by and help us pick the right grey."
