I received a message asking about some paint colors in my home, and I realized how horribly outdated this original post was. No time like the present to update it, eh?
Before you come after me with torches and pitchforks, you should know that there are some rooms that I just don’t know. My guestroom, for instance, has about 15 layers of custom mixed paint on it. And by custom, I mean I just kept pouring different paints together until I liked it. So there’s that…
Let’s begin. The dining room. My apologies for the Christmas pics. My photography has definitely improved over time, and these are the most recent ones I have. It really shows the true color best.
The top half is Favorite Tan by Sherwin Williams. I love it because regardless of the light, it’s a beautiful color. The bottom half is a gloss white by Benjamin Moore (no mix).
The mudroom cabinets are Benjamin Moore’s Wind’s Breath.
I’ve been asked quite often about the finish. I’m all about DIY, but I had these professionally painted. I felt like it would hold up much better to my kids’ abuse.
My son’s room is Benjamin Moore’s Sterling Silver.
The #1 inquiry? My daughter’s room. It’s Benjamin Moore’s Iced Green. Don’t let the name fool you. It’s definitely a blue. A perfect blue.
If you remember (and I’m sure it’s all you think about), this is the room that sent me to the hospital a while back. Bad memories, but good color. It’s Benjamin Moore’s Soft Chamois.
The fireplace wall is just a shade darker than Grant Beige. It’s called Berkshire Beige. I wanted something a tinge deeper to really show off the chunky fireplace. It’s just enough that you don’t really notice the difference, but it makes me happy.
The kids’ bathroom is Cotton Balls by (shocker) Benjamin Moore. I loooove it. It’s not a stark white, and it has a very subtle creaminess to it. It’s perfect since there is no natural light in there.
Lots of people ask about the ceiling color, and I stupidly disposed of it before writing it down. I even have a patch I need to fill, and I’m waiting to figure out the color. #dummy
If I didn’t give you a room color it’s simply ‘cause I don’t know it. We have since disposed of the paint from when we built this house, and I’ve torn apart our files looking for swatches or names written down. No luck. Stay tuned–I’m sure I’ll be repainting them soon enough anyway.
