Smoky Blue by Sherwin-Williams
Red is THE color this time of year, and although it might not be the most popular paint trend right now, it can add beauty, warmth, energy and personality to any room. The tricky part is getting it right. Here are a few of my favorites that are GOOD reds – not too orange or pink, and that will brighten up any space.
1. Caliente by Benjamin Moore: I have seen this color in a few different spaces and have loved it every time. I love how it pops against white trim.
2. Crabby Apple by Sherwin-Williams: The perfect rustic, old-fashioned red. Perfect for a front door or on a shed or barn, as seen below.
3. Heirloom Red by Valspar: A great red for a piece of furniture or a door in your home. Love the pop of color it adds to this room. (The coordinating color on the wall is Oyster Bay by Sherwin-Williams.)
4. Red by Benjamin Moore – The name says it all. True. Red.
5. Heartthrob by Sherwin-Williams: Wouldn’t this make a great paint color for your Valentine’s Day décor?
And another great source for no-fail reds from Real Simple

Mindful Gray by Sherwin-Williams
Do you love the show “Fixer Upper” on HGTV? It’s definitely one of my favorites, and Johanna Gaines has a blog over at Magnolia Homes where she shares some of her renovations and fun DIY projects. I love her style and am always wondering the paint colors when I see the room makeovers on HGTV. This room is painted Silver Plate by Sherwin-Williams.
We are getting soo close to moving into our house. My husband is finishing up the kitchen and I have been tackling the playroom trying to put our toys into a semi-organized state. I painted an old end-table I found at a yard sale last summer for the playroom and wanted to share it with you today.
My inspiration came a “you are my sunshine” plaque my mother-in-law gave to my girls a little while ago. My youngest at the time had to have this song every night before she went to bed, it reminds me of her so I love it, and especially love the color combination of the yellow, turquoise and coral. So when Sherwin-Williams released their color of the year for 2015, I knew I wanted to incorporate it into our playroom. They were so kind to let me try a gallon of their Pro-Classic paint in Coral Reef, and I love the results.
I was so excited to get working on it one night, I forgot to take before pictures. I know it’s an awful picture, but you get the idea of how it looked before it’s makeover. Pretty plain and ugly. And the blue painted carpet and mess in the background… so glad that’s gone.
I gave it a couple of coats of Zinsser Primer, sprayed on a couple of coats of Coral Reef, put the hardware back on ….
And here it is, so much happier.
If you are looking for a perfect Coral, I think you will love this color, not too pinky or orangy, really a great mix. I am excited to show you where else I am using it in our playroom.

Here is a paint submission I received from Lisa, one of my readers:
“After weeks of buying samples and endless debating our kitchen color, I finally saw your 10 top paint colors of 2014 and tried Manchester Tan. It is perfect for our kitchen!! We did 80% saturation. Thank you!!
I love seeing kitchen remodels and appreciate them so much more, and this is a great list of everything they updated. Soo much work! Manchester Tan is one of my go to colors and as Lisa mentioned, it was one of the top 10 colors from last year. If you missed that post, you can see it here. And go check out the befores at Lisa’s blog. The transformation is so fun to see!
