If you've been following along on Snapchat then you know that a LOT of my time lately has been occupied by paint. ;) The main areas of the house have great neutrals, but we've been switching out the bedrooms and a few other rooms and I've been picking (and re-picking) colors.
When you first walk into the house the living room and foyer are both different neutrals (which were there when we moved in).
The living room is a different neutral than the foyer and up into the game room.
Keep in mind that we're still unpacking! :)
Several of y'all have asked what paint colors our neutral areas are, so here you go! The previous owners painted all the neutrals, so I'm just going off of the touch-up paint they left.
I realize that this paint doesn't help at all. SORRY!!! hahaha
The family room is another great neutral... I think it may be the same as the living room.
The playroom loft is in the upper right hand corner of the picture below.
The family room is a great beige that we're loving so far. Here's the label for all of you who asked....
The dining room is currently painted a rusty red color. Our painter is coming today (eeeek!) and so I've been deciding on the perfect dark olive for this room. So far the winner is La Fonda Dark Olive by Valspar.
(and here's the can of the current red)
To further complicate things I added a couple of other colors last night :) But I'm still thinking the middle color.
The kitchen is making me crazy ;)
Top - Rose Pine by Behr
Second from top - La Fonda Dark Olive
Middle - Behr True Olive (front runner!)
Second from bottom - La Fonda Olive
Bottom - Behr True Olive again
I started off with the two Valspar colors and added a couple more samples last night. Right now the front runner is "True Olive" by Behr.
The cabinets are going to be antiqued white, and I can't wait to see the green up against them.
Upstairs, the kids rooms had lots of fun colors and patterns...
And while the colors were fun, we opted to switch them all out for Light French Gray by Sherwin Williams (we had it color matched into the premium Glidden paint at Home Depot to cover all the colorful paint).
We did the same color in all three kids rooms as well as the jack and jill bathroom upstairs.
I was skeptical about going gray in Griffin's room, but her sheets have gray in them and I wanted a neutral base for all of the fun colors we'll add in with decor and curtains and such.
Our master bedroom is a taupe color and the master bath was a VERY baby blue color. We had that switched out to Washed Olive by Behr last weekend and LOVE it!
It's hard to get it accurately on camera, but it's a really pretty light green that goes well with the paint as well as bedding in the master.
Our office has a similar light green in it that I LOVE! It was here when we moved in and I forgot to take a picture of the can.
We're having so much fun personalizing our home and can't wait to have the rest of the paint wrapped up in the next couple of days. I'm writing this post on Wednesday night and HOPEFULLY by the time you're reading this on Thursday morning my paint samples have dried and I've made a decision on kitchen and dining room paint :) I saw hopefully because the painter is coming today at 11 am!
So, are you a neutral lover or do you prefer bold color in your home? One color throughout or lots of different hues? Do tell!!!
Happy Thursday, friends!!!
