I have been getting emails from readers asking about the paint colors in my home, so I thought I would devote this post to just that. (I’m planning on adding them as a page too). I know a “whole house tour” is also in order, and I’m working on it. First I need to let go of my idea that things need to be “done” before I share them. But then, when is any room truly done, right?
Here we go…
Master Bedroom – This was the first room in our home that I tackled, and is probably my favorite. The color is Mineral Deposit, by Sherwin Williams. Just the perfect blue-gray shade that is oh-so-soothing. I swear, I feel more relaxed just stepping into this room.
My daughter’s bedroom is another one that was repainted before we moved in. We went with a soft pink called “Priscilla” by Sherwin Williams. Love that name for a paint color. It looks just like you think it would.
My office has also had a facelift (still a work in progress). I chose “Muslin” by Sherwin Williams. This color could become a staple in my paint arsenal – a great neutral that is light, yet not at all cold.
There are still a multitude of colors in my home that are not my own doing. Some are better than others. 😉
Much of my home is painted in this color – “Burlap” by Sherwin Williams (although the paint that was used is Porter Paints). It’s in my family room, kitchen, main floor hallways and on my gallery wall in the basement. I think the ceiling here in the great room was painted with the same Burlap color, cutting it by 25%. (I say that because the paint cans in my basement are labeled as “Burlap 25%”). Makes sense, right?
The laundry room is painted in “Blonde” by Sherwin Williams.
Friends don’t let friends paint their rooms “Cardboard”.
Some rooms are covered in my nemesis – wallpaper.
Others, I have repainted, but still need to photograph. Again, I need to move beyond the idea that they need to be finished to be “blogworthy”.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who suffers from this affliction.
