The paint colors we chose for this house are fairly similar to those in our old one. They are mostly neutral. The one color palette we did change considerably was the Master Bedroom. In there, we went with cool spa like tones.
We tried to keep it all pretty simple. There are only 5 colors in the whole house. For the main areas like the garage, family room, hallways, bonus room, spare bedrooms & baths we went with the same khaki color. It’s by Benjamin Moore and called (AC – 2) Berkshire Beige. Depending on the light it gets more tan or green looking. For the wet areas we went with a Pearl finish; and for the dry rooms we used an Eggshell finish.
Since we were reusing our old dining room drapes, for this dining room we went with a custom color match. It turned out to be an exact match with an existing Benjamin Moore color, (2112 – 20) Brown Sugar. It is a really dark chocolate brown. We used this on the upper half of the dining room walls and in the coffered ceiling of the family room. The two rooms are open to each other and I thought it helped to tie them together.
The kitchen and laundry rooms are both painted Benjamin Moore (2144-30) Rosemary Sprig. My old kitchen was green, though a bit lighter, so I just thought I’d stick with what I was used to…for now.
In the master bedroom area we went with a completely different look than our old house. Where the old room was more deep jewel tones – with burgundy and olive green, this one is much more cool and serene. (I’ll show you soon – promise). The color chosen for this room is by Sherwin Williams, (SW 7642) Pavestone. It is a soft dove gray.
I have NO idea why this is so tiny. Arrrgghhh!
For the master bath we went with another Sherwin Williams color, (SW 6211) Rainwashed. It’s kind of like a sea glass green/ blue.
Again with the tiny…Sorry!!!
We also used the Rainwashed color in the coffered ceiling of the master bedroom. It really helps to highlight the coffer and tie the two rooms together.
