    I love your post on how to chose the perfect greige and would like your advice since I live in Europe and we do not have Sherwin Williams paints available in my country could you recommend greige color from Dulux for small south facing bedroom, the furniture is all white and the walls are white and it looks really bad so I want to liven it up a little with different wall color but can not decide. They do not offer samples to try some on the wall and stuff.

    1. Hello. Most paint stores can color match based on the name of a color. You might even try google searching the color formula for Requisite Grey and take it to your paint store to have it mixed.

    I am trying to hang curtains on my metal pergola. It is causing me pause as I don’t know how to hang the hinges for the curtain wire, it all says they need to be attached to a wall, and I have 4 metal post, please help me. I am working on a small budget and have to do it DIY.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Pat. If the posts are metal you can still hang them, you will just need the right screws and drill bit to attach your parts to metal. I didn’t use a wire, I used pipe. Did you read this post?

    I really like the way you presented choosing the right greige color. I have been struggling for a paint color for my room and wanted a greige color that was on the warm side.
