    What’s the light grey paint color on the walls in #3? The picture with the yellow lamps and red blanket draped on the bed. Thanks. I’m looking for a grey for my walls. Hard to pick the right Grey shade. I have red accents in my house so this shade might work!

    almost every “before” has bare walls.no wonder they look so drab.they need pictures or art and that alone would help.
