As you know we are in the process of moving. We had a little over a week before we moved in, so we got busy preparing our home.
First on the agenda was paint. I have a love-hate relationship with interior paint colors. I find selecting paint color completely overwhelming. To make my decision more daunting, we left a home with cream trim and landed in a house with dark wood trim. Yes, it makes a huge difference!
With all the windows we had and all the cream trim, we went with a darker color to warm the place up.
New home- the wood floors and dark trim dictated a lighter color.
I am absolutely thrilled with the choice. That is a first!
Next to the fireplace the color looks beige, over the molding it looks grey.
Let’s just call it Greige.
Color: Smoked Tan from HD
Finish: Washable flat
The previous owners had many colors throughout the house. The one wall in the living room was textured and a darker shade of green/brown.
The walls were sanded down and painted the same color as the rest of the house.
Daughter #1 selected a blue for her room.
The master is done in conservative grey.
We got creative in a few rooms. Creativity takes a really long time, so I can only share a peek of one of the rooms.
This is Smoked Tan and a creamy white. Both by Behr in a flat.
It isn’t often that I get an interior paint color selection right. But I am thrilled this go round. Perhaps painting our 6th house is a charm!?
I’ve been busy painting many pieces of furniture, (and ignoring the boxes). But I have some exciting news to share and can’t wait to show you some of my favorite pieces!
Have a great day!
