My Dream Laundry Room

We are about to start our laundry room makeover in our house. We just finished our upstairs bathroom, which I am going to show you soon and after living here for 2 years, we almost have every room in our house updated and remodeled. As I was going through inspiration pictures the other night, trying to figure out how I wanted to start, I came across this gorgeous room from Dear Lillie. It is perfection.

Wall paint colors: Simply White by Benjamin Moore

Cabinets and window trim: Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Reader’s Question + More Paint Colors To Go With Wood (Red Pine)

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is about paint that coordinates with wood. I had a reader contact me the other day, wondering what to do about her kitchen cabinets and wall so that the colors would work well with her red pine trim and doors.

The woodwork in her home is beautiful, I love the big fat trim around the windows, the hardwood floors and the red pine doors. As you can see the ceiling is also planked wood, but she is planning on covering that up with drywall and then painting it white to lighten up the kitchen. She is also getting new custom cabinets, and a new quartz countertop.

Her question was what color to do the cabinets and the walls to coordinate with the red pine she has in her home. Her contractor suggested she go with blonde maple cabinets, and she wanted Sharkey Gray by Martha Stewart to go on her walls.

I put together a palette so that she could see what that might look like with the wood, and also added a few other greiges that I think would go great with Red Pine.

From top to bottom the paint colors are Agreeable Gray by Sherwin-Williams, Sharkey Gray by Martha Stewart, Pismo Dunes by Benjamin Moore, and Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. I love all of these colors because they are warmer greiges, which you want you have a warmer wood such as red pine.

Debbie has been going back and forth between blonde maple cabinets and painted. I told her that either one would work, it just depended on the décor style she was looking for. Mixing woods can be very beautiful, but to me the wood in her kitchen would really pop if she went with painted cabinets. I found some inspiration pictures with woodwork and I love the beauty of the wood itself when the rest of the room is a neutral color.

My go-to color for white cabinets is White Dove by Benjamin Moore. It’s got a touch of cream to warm up the color and it doesn’t have any weird undertones. Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams is an identical match to White Dove if you prefer Sherwin-Williams.

With wood, I love beiges, creams, greens, and blues.

paint colors to go with warm wood

 Here are some of my favorites from each category I listed above that would look great with warm, wood trim.

Starting at the top: Ivoire by Sherwin-Williams – a light cream with a touch of yellow.

Network Gray by Sherwin-Williams, a great blue-gray that is a good contrast with wood trim. Here is an example of blue with wood.

The middle color is Huntington Beige by Benjamin Moore. A great neutral with a hint of brown.

Crisp Khaki by Benjamin Moore– a great tan that would work well with any type of wood trim.

The last color is Svelte Sage by Sherwin-Williams. I love green with wood, as I’ve mentioned before it’s natures best combination. Here is an example of a sagey green with wood.

I hope this helps when trying to decide the best paint color to go with your wood trim. I also hope to follow up with you and show you the transformation of Debbie’s kitchen and let you know what she decides. For more posts I have done on paint colors to go with wood trim and cabinets, see here. Have a great day!

Favorite Paint Colors of Instagram

Happy Friday! I hope you all are enjoying 2017. I can’t believe we are into February! I don’t even know where January went?!

I have made some goals for this year and one of them is to use my Instagram account more. I am doing better, and as I have been on while nursing my little guy I have been amazed at how much inspiration is to be found on design and paint colors. Today I am introducing a new series that features paint inspiration solely from Instagram. Every Friday I will feature some of my favorite stories shared from others, and also give you an opportunity to share your favorite colors with me.

If you have an Instagram account and have a paint color you love, snap a picture and use the hashtag #favoritepaintcolors. I would love to feature you and see what paint colors you are crushing on.

Paint Colors of Instagram Series

Here are some beautiful colors and rooms that I have loved this past week and wanted to share:

exterior paint colors

This home is very similar to our exterior that we painted over the summer. I love the gray, black and pop of blue on the door. Oh and those flowers, how I am longing for spring and summer. We are into subzero temps and snow again today… but this photo lifts my spirits.

Siding: Pewterworks by Duron

Shutters: Urbane Bronze by Sherwin-Williams

The Painted Chandelier – Instagram:@thepaintedchandelier

dining room paint color

This color is a perfect silvery, blue-gray and works with any style. I love it with the dark wood floors in this photo. This is also a popular paint pick of Joanna from Fixer Upper.

Silver Strand by Sherwin-Williams

green vanity paint color

This vanity is perfection, I love the mix of blue and green – and that floor! So cute.

Hunter Green by Benjamin Moore

@lifestyledco

neutral bathroom paint color

If you have been following my blog for very long, you know Revere Pewter is a very popular color. I have loved it in every space, whether I see it in person or on the computer. It’s the perfect neutral that sometimes tends to look more beige, and other times more gray. I love it in this bathroom with the white bead board and neutral colors.

beautiful navy paint color

Ahhh… Navy. This would be perfect in a room with a lot of light and bright white pops of color – love the starfish and beach theme.

Relaxed Navy by Valspar
