Paint

Choosing paint colors can be so overwhelming!  I spent hours staring at paint swatches, standing in Sherwin Williams and looking for pictures on Pinterest.  As we know, paint looks totally different when you get it on the wall. I really wanted our home to have a simple, comfortable feel.  In the past I have used pretty dramatic colors on our walls.  I’m certainly not afraid of color, I have just chosen a more simple pallette this time.  For our Great Room, Kitchen and most of the house I landed on Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams.  Here are a few pictures of how it looks on the walls.  It is a light, warm gray…almost a clay color.  I like that it blends well with our darker gray (SW Iron Ore) on the cabinetry, doors and railing, but it also looks nice against our wood floors.

In our bedroom, we took a risk by painting our ceiling a darker gray (SW Grizzly Gray).  I like that it adds some drama and sets off the crown molding.

The back wall is also a darker gray (SW) and the remaining three walls are SW Passive.

Aren’t the pendant lights gorgeous!?! I love them!.  It’s hard to tell from the picture, but they have a large crystal hanging in the middle and a smaller one on the bottom.

Our kitchen cabinets and all of our trim is painted in SW Snowbound.  I decided on this white because it works well with gray and doesn’t have a yellow hue to it.  It is close to a bright white, but has a little more pearl to it.  You can see more of it in my post about cabinets!  Here is a glimpse of our foyer and catwalk with the railing painted in SW Snowbound and SW Iron Ore.
