Living room paint options


For whatever reason, I’m having writer’s block, and it’s quite ironic as I’ve never had this many home projects going on at once. In theory, I should have a hecka lot of blog content. Perhaps it’s the full brain that’s keeping me from blogging my little heart out.

Anyway, today we are talking living room paint colors. I’m sure you’ll be surprised to hear we hope to paint our living room a grayish color…ha! Our last home was filled with grays and I think we’ll continue the trend at our new place. After much thought, I’ve narrowed the field down to four potential Benjamin Moore grays.

And just as a refresher, here’s the living room “before” photos…

The good news is that the room can’t get much worse.

Got a paint opinion? Spill it!

Benjamin Moore's Georgian Green

Not sure what got into me last night, but I painted my little heart out after a full days work. The bathroom needed a facelift and paint does wonders when it comes to a quick fix. Benjamin Moore’s Georgian Green was the color I choose and it’s green and I like it. Our bathroom was already green (I don’t know what color it was exactly because the owners before us painted the room) so it’s actually a fairly similar color to what we already had.

Here’s a quick instagram photo I snapped once all the painting was complete. Of course, the room looks much more like the above color than the one in the photo below. Figures. Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as bright as it looks.

More photos of the bathroom to come soon:)…

Home Tour…in paint colors

Morning folks!

Sorry for the silence – we’ve been busy bees lately. But, I’m back this week with lots of goodies, starting today with a tour of our home, in paint colors. Paint questions are the most frequently asked, so I figured I might as well do a quick show and tell…

Living Room – Benjamin Moore’s Copley Gray

Dining Room – Olympic’s Quill (more details here)

Guest Bedroom – Behr’s Pebble Stone

Kitchen/Nook – Benjamin Moore’s Rockport Gray

Upstairs Bedroom – Benjamin Moore’s Fairview Taupe

Basement – Benjamin Moore’s Pale Oak (more details here)

There you have it – our little abode in paint colors. You can bet we’ve sampled dozens of other colors, as we’ve repainted a few rooms more than once. What have we learned? Make sure you are in LOVE with your paint color before painting an entire room. Or rather, picking a color because you are in a hurry/just can’t decide is not a good idea. Paint is a big commitment, and you need to really, really like the colors you choose.

What I’m dying to know – what are your favorite paint colors? Do tell!
