The right shade of grey !

I'm trying to find the right shade of grey to paint a wall in my bedroom. Usually I'm quite confident when choosing paint colours as I've used soooo.... many over the years but the shade of grey I'm looking for has me stumped.

Currently I have a number of samples taped to the wall but they are either too purple , too blue, too light or too dark ....  oh the choice is confusing.

I just want to paint the wall behind the bed which is currently a plum colour.
The other walls are a neutral  Dulux Hog Bristle , the floor is charcoal and the bed is black.

The American blogs show some beautiful colours but down here in Australia we seem a little limited.

If anyone can suggest a fabulous shade of grey/gray I'de be delighted to hear from you.

Beautiful coral prints and a sneak peek

When  I look around my home, I am reminded of all the beautiful bloggers that I have come across over the years.
I have so many reminders of etsy purchases, gifts and how amazing is it to be a blogger.

My latest purchase arrived today from the gorgeous Kerri Shipp of Driftwood Interiors

I absolutley love them and will frame them up soon.
 You can visit Kerri HERE
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that the transformation of Kyandra has been a long slow process. Mainly due to the fact that I wasn't sure on the style or approach that I wanted to take when redecorating.
But I think I am now becoming more comfortable with my choices.
So here is  a sneak peek of my other living area....
 So in love with my 'Revenge' sofa!!!!
 This was the same area before....
Ha ha...... how we change. It's like I've grown up!

Gorgeous rugs and the great rug chase

I am really loving all the gorgeous rug choices at the moment. I've always been a bit of a rug girl...but have usually chosen more traditinal type floor rugs.

But I find I am being drawn to these beautiful patterns and textures...

Love this gorgeous dining room!  Look at the rug underneath the table and chairs!
All about the RUG!

Dining room
dining room with tolix chairs  vintage wooden table
small chevron rug under rustic dining table
love the glass top on the dining room table
So after yearning for one to put under my dining table I happened to be shopping in KMart for a few bits and bobs when voila.... there it was. I must say I blinked a few time as I didn't quite believe what I was seeing. Although not the rug of my dreams.... it would do for now!
And the price.... well at $29.99 an absolute bargain.
They only had two in stock and as I wasn't sure of the size I needed so  I left them, went home ready to measure and return the next day...
Perfect size for our little dining spot so back I went empty shelf.....both were GONE.
Not to be out done, off I went and drove another 40 minutes to find the next nearest store and YES they were there...
So here it is...

and I am loving it.....
Have you ever chased down a bargain???
