By far the most frequent question I get is about paint colors. I totally get it. Choosing paint colors, whether for a single piece of furniture, a room, or your entire home, can be a daunting process. I love to paint – no surprise there, and I have painted and repainted (and repainted again) every room in my home. As my taste and style has changed over the years, so has the color palette in my home. I have been systematically painting the rooms in my home using soft and warm neutrals and soothing blues.
Since I get quite a few questions about the paint colors I have used, I’ve compiled them all and am sharing them today. All paint colors are Benjamin Moore.
Living Room, Dining Room, Den and Entry
The main floor of our home is very open and most of the spaces connect to one another. To give the open areas flow and a cohesive feel, I painted the entry, living room, dining room, den and hallway all in “Balboa Mist.” It is a warm and soft neutral gray. I would describe it as a “greige” with taupe undertones. All of the trim and wainscoting in our home was painted in a custom color, but it very close to Benjamin Moore “Cloud White” which is a soft creamy white without being too yellow.
I recently painted our small powder room with “Cumulus Cloud.” It is very similar to “Balboa Mist” but a shade or two darker.
There is very little wall space in the kitchen. Just a sliver above the cabinets, above the window and next to the refrigerator. I painted it in a very soft and warm light gray called “Silver Satin.”
The master bedroom has six windows so it gets a ton of natural light. I painted it in “Classic Gray” which is a very pretty light gray.
I recently gave my daughter’s bedroom a makeover. You can see her full room tour here. She wanted the walls painted a calm and relaxing blue. We chose “Glass Slipper.” It is such a pretty blue with gray undertones.
In the guest/kids’ bath, I added a bit of color with “Newburyport Blue.” The entire room tour can be found here.
The office is on the first floor, but is separated by French doors from the rest of the house, making it a good candidate for a different color. I painted it in “Gray Wisp” which is a blue/green/gray. I love it with the end tables I painted in General Finishes Tavern Green.
Those are the colors I have, and love, in my home. Thanks so much for dropping in.
