My New Color!

I am having major comp problems here again so I am going to make this quick before it cuts me off again. I painted my dining rm light silver sage, it looks really blue though. I have to get used to it but I do like it . What do you all think do ya like it?? I am still playing around with the decor, did you notice my oval mirror over the fireplace remember it used to be gold I painted it white, I have more to show you but my house,the part you can't see in the picture, is still a mess, LOL.
Hugs~Kelly
The paint color is LIGHT silver sage from Restoration Hardware they also have silver sage which I don't think would look quit as blue but my son liked this one so I gave it a try(;
The red & white polk a dot dishes came from Homegoods.
The slipcovers are from Target.

Good luck with the comp. problems, seems to be going around.

What a pretty room. I have my kitchen and bath that color as well. Another color that is amazing is Heavenly Blue from Benjamin Moore. I have painted my entire store that color. It's really similiar but a little bluer.

Thanks for sharing your pictures.
