Happy Friday Friends! I hope everyone’s February is going well!  I recently shared a reel on Instagram  highlighting the paint colors in our home.  I’m often asked about them, so I figured I’d cover that base here as well.  Paint colors can be tricky, I like to change décor up often, so a neutral backdrop is always at the top of my mind.  Even though I’m not always the most adventurous with color, I figured I’d share just to help others who tend to be in the same boat.

See below for the paint colors in every (presentable😆) room of our home:

The Mudroom: 

The mudroom, is still a work in progress, believe it or not, but, I’m often asked about the door color, which I mixed myself.  It consists of equal parts Behr Lite Cocoa and Behr Clay Pot

Walls, Sherwin Williams Snowbound

Sitting Room AND Living Room, Sherwin Williams Basalt Powder.  

This color was also used in our last house in the kitchen and dining room.  It’s a very light, greige which I think is perfect if you’re looking for a non-white neutral color.

So, I honestly struggle with paint colors, so a lot of times I spend about 30 minutes in the paint aisle, and then feel guilty that I spent so much time deliberating, that I just finally give in and choose a color.  That’s what happened here.

Main Bedroom and Board and Batten in Cayden’s Room, Behr Sculptor Clay

This color is a chameleon color.  It looks more brown in our bedroom that faces South East, but  in our son Cayden’s bedroom, which faces more South West, it looks more like a greige.

Kitchen Wainscoting and workshop cabinets, Behr Ginger Sugar

In our kitchen I painted the wainscoting Behr Ginger Sugar, and in my “workshop,” the cabinets are the same.

Bathroom, Behr Graphic Charcoal

In our first floor bathroom, I knew that I wanted to mimic the bathroom at our last house with the console sink and vertical shiplap, but I didn’t want it to be the same-same . . . so, I went ahead and painted it all dark.  I landed on Behr Graphic Charcoal because it was a great match to the wallpaper that inspired the entire space.

Accent Wall-Sitting Room, Behr Barnwood Gray

When we moved here, I wanted to embrace the fact that we didn’t get much light in this space by painting the whole room in a dark and moody color, but my husband had the idea to do an accent wall.  So we used paint that we had leftover from the walk-in closet in the Victorian and create a semi-moody moment here.  Barnwood Gray is another chameleon color, it looks a little green to me, but it is a beautifully saturated color.

Front door, Heritage Park

Painting our front door was one of the first projects I took on at this house.  I didn’t think I would keep the color once we did the siding over , but it’s such a versatile color that it works beautifully with pale yellow, as well a dark gray.
