A Touch of Color

Whew! Sans our upstairs bath, we’ve now painted every. single. room. in this house. If this baby wasn’t cramping my bubbly consumption, I’d toast to that.

This house is so far from done I could snort laugh, but having the rooms painted, I must confess, makes it feel that much more livable. No more wallpaper, no more yucky gross walls that hadn’t been painted in decades. It was time, time to bring this house into the 21st century.

It took me a quick second to hunt all the room colors down, but I finally did. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present, our house colors!

If you’re looking for bright pinks and sea green blue, you’ll have to jump over to a neighbor’s shack, since I’ve gotta say, when it comes to wall colors, I like to keep the palette nice and simple. Accessories, people. That’s where I add the spicey nicey. But that big old backdrop, I like to keep that simple. :)

Here’s how each of the colors look live and in color in our joint.

In our hallway, we went with Revere Pewter. I’m a fan, man.

In our bedroom, and living room we used one of my tried and true staples. Edgecomb Gray.

For our future little mister, we went with ballet white from Benjamin Moore. (see his new room in our current house, here)

This reads a bit more blue in person than the swatch. I actually wanted the gray tone, so this room might get a quick paint down the line! 😉

And in our Guest Room, we’re rocking it out with some green walls. So nice, so green, so clean.

We’ve been switching up the colors a bit in our new house – like this deep dark navy color in the babe’s room. Always fun to try something different!

  1. Paint does wonders to a house! Matt and I painted our entryway, stairway, and bedroom Benjamin Moore Barley, and our guest room is Palladium Blue. We have a dusky blue in our office, and a dark blue in our bathroom, the names of which I can’t recall. All told, our second floor is in the blue/green range, and our first floor is going to be painted in the warm yellow/red tones along the lines of this once we get off our lazy bums. It’s kind of a subtle rainbow as you travel through the house, with the Barley color linking it all together :)

  2. Are the paint selections other than your little man’s, all from Benjamin Moore? If so, I love love love their paint and your house is coming along nicely!

  3. Looks beautiful! What color did you use on your moldings? We just added crown molding to our living room and I want it to pop…

  4. Hi! I have a dilemma with the home we just purchased. I was going to paint my walls Swiss coffee by Frazee but it turns out the trim in my home is already Swiss Coffee by Frazee. Any thoughts on a paint color that would compliment this trim while still reading white? (Not yellow or dingy). I should also note that there are soft grey cabinets with white countertops in this room. Thanks!
