Farrow and Ball Paint Combination

I love looking at Farrow and Ball paint colors. Their neutral palette is amazing and I don’t think you could go wrong with any of their colors. Did you know that you can order a free colour book from them? I know their paint is more expensive and not everywhere sells it, we have a local paint store here that carries Farrow and Ball, but if you want a gorgeous color and you love it, the extra money might be worth it. My sister did a post on a great paint resource that can help you “match” the Farrow and Ball colors to other paint companies, that’s also a great option. Enjoy!!

Paint Color Combination #2

Here is paint color combo #2. I received an e-mail from a reader looking for color to go with Tapestry Beige by Benjamin Moore (#4). Here are some options that I think would look great, either on the walls, accessories, or even the exterior. If I were going to do the exterior, I would use 1, 2 and 4. There are so many possibilities.

Paint Color Combinations – All Month Long!

Happy October! This is a wonderful month for so many reasons. The weather here in Montana has been absolutely perfect, the colors are amazing, the decorations are so much fun and who doesn’t love apple cider, pumpkins, and sweaters? It’s one of my favorites, and I hope to make it even a little sweeter by posting paint color combinations all month long. One of my most frequently asked questions is about coordinating paint colors, so I hope that this month will help with your color decisions, whether it’s one room or a whole home.

Paint Combo #1

With these four colors from Sherwin-Williams, you could put them together however you like. Here I have #4, Palisade by Sherwin-Williams, as the main color and the top three used as accent colors. Or you can see below how they look in individual rooms if you are looking for a whole house color scheme.

75+ Colors to Paint Your Cabinets {Other Than White}

75+ Colors to Paint Your Cabinets {other than white}

I am in the process of trying to figure out what color to paint some cabinets in our hallway…

I want to do something different than white, we painted our kitchen cabinets White Dove by Benjamin Moore, which I love, but I want a little contrast. As I was scouring my resources and the internet, I was a little overwhelmed with how many beautiful colors there were that looked amazing on cabinets in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.

When I toured some homes for the Utah Valley Parade of Homes, a BIG trend was painted cabinets (and not white!)

A blue vanity in a boys bathroom…

I LOVE this buttery yellow color in this laundry room. It cheers the space right up. Smile

And this chartreuse cabinet color in this pantry.

Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore – dark gray blues, were very popular in kitchens

Polo Blue by Benjamin Moore (navy cabinets were also super popular!)

Inspiration for Fall Paint Colors

Happy September! My kids are officially back in school, we are enjoying cooler weather, and I am so excited to get back to projects in our home that we weren’t able to get done over the summer. Bottom line, I am excited for FALL. As I was going through pinterest, I found some beautiful pictures for fall inspiration and wanted to share.

Fall front door

I love this inspiration gallery from HGTV. All of the pictures are so inviting and cozy, and this red door looks perfect with the colors from this magnolia wreath. HGTV doesn’t say the actual paint color, but it looks pretty close to Tanager by Sherwin-Williams. I love red doors.

Another ahhhh picture from HGTV. This foyer is perfection, and don’t you think this amber yellow is a perfect fall color? Especially against the white wainscoating…

This color looks like Amber Wave by Sherwin-Williams.

And check out this fall color palette from Sound Built Homes. I love the grays, blues and greens mixed together with the yellows reds and oranges.
