Bye-bye, 50 Shades! 3 Paint Colors That Aren't At All Boring

Designers love grey. It’s elegant, tasteful and goes with everything. That being said, if every wall in your house is one of fifty shades of grey, it can get pretty boring. So I’m here to tell you that you have options. And if you’re having trouble picking a hue (I know that’s the hardest part!), let me just tell you a few that I’m loving. Live in color, my friends!

Spring Green Bedroom

Spring Green

Great for a master bedroom or kitchen, a peppy grey-green is a more fun than grey or beige, without going so bright that it fights with your furnishings.

Indigo Bedroom


A sort of retro royal blue, this deep shade has an opulent earthiness to it. Love it for a dining room or office—start with an accent wall if you’re not ready to go the whole hog.

Pink Living Room

Pale Pink

Yes, pink can be grown-up! This versatile shade pairs just as well with modern greys as it does with rich berry tones or masculine browns. Try it in a living room or powder room.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️

This photo was taken the day my mom brought me back to the US from Panama, where I was born. She had jet-black hair and a tan, whereas I was basically translucent, with white hair and big blue eyes. Security guards stopped her in the airport because they thought she was smuggling someone else’s baby out of the country. So, I guess it’s time for everyone to come clean. I was indeed stolen. I am actually a Norwegian prince. Where’s my 👑, Terri?!?! Where. Is. My. #%^*ing. 👑?!? 🤪 Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you. Sorry I’m so weird. ❤️
