My 5 Top White Paint Colors

Lately I have had quite a few questions about picking out the right white paint. So today we’re going to talk about a few of the most versatile, fail-proof, go with everything white paint colors there are. When it comes down to picking out the perfect white paint and you have dozens of choices to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. Warm whites, cool whites, ultra whites, creamy whites – it’s kind of hard to know what to pick. So I have taken my number one choice from 5 popular paint brands (Benjamin Moore, Behr, Glidden, Sherwin-Williams and Valspar) to hopefully help you narrow down your choice. I love these whites because they will work for anything and go with pretty much any color. Whether you are painting trim, wainscoting, walls, cabinets or a piece of furniture, these colors will work beautifully.

Curb Appeal {Front Door Inspiration + Paint Colors}

My husband and I have been doing a little bit of house hunting lately and one of the first things that I notice when we see a potential house is the front door. It’s amazing to me how something this simple can either make a home look warm and inviting, or trashy and run down. I have compiled a few fun and inviting doors that give the whole home a personality. There are so many fun colors out there, why not add your personality to your front door? Here are a few of my favorites, complete with paint colors.
