Crushed Ice by Sherwin Williams

Favorite Paint Color of the Month {Crushed Ice}

Happy last day of February! Today I wanted to share with you another one of my favorite paint colors this month.
So many paint colors to choose from, I have so many favorites but the winner for the month of February is Crushed Ice by Sherwin Williams.  If you know me by now, you know I love grays, but I especially love warm grays, beiges, greiges, anything up that alley. This color is a warm gray and has just a hint of beige in it.*LOVE*

Thank you for letting me share another one of my favorite colors with you today. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. We are staying inside to keep warm, there is a raging blizzard outside and school is CANCELLED. School never gets cancelled in Montana so we are taking advantage of our snow day here. See you next week!

Favorite Paint Color of the Month {Winter in Paris}

Happy last day of January! I can’t believe we are already one month through the year, crazy stuff! We are finally getting snow in Montana and I love it. I figure if it’s going to be winter, we might as well have snow to go with it. Better now than in April I suppose.
So when I was looking at the paint color forecast for 2014, I loved Valspar’s “Zenergy” palette, especially Winter in Paris. You know how colors just jump out to you on the screen and you think, LOVE that! Well that’s exactly what I thought when I saw “Winter in Paris”.

Then I came across this beautiful living room makeover from The Blissful Bee and fell in love once again. The whole transformation is amazing, but I especially love the colors. I love how this paint color has a tint of gray, a little turquoise and is not too “baby” blue. Winter in Paris by Valspar - living room paint color

I’ve decided to name it my favorite paint color of the month. Now I realize this is the last day of January, but I have a ton of favorites and will feature a new one sometime next month, and then the next month and so on. Plus, the name is just fitting for this time of year.

Happy Friday everyone! Last month I featured Sherwin Williams color of the year, Exclusive Plum, and wanted to share with you a few more color trends for 2014.
Valspar just released their 2014 color outlook this week and it’s awesome! “In 2014, consumers will be redefining what matters and will feel a growing awareness of what’s important,” said Sue Kim, Valspar color strategist. “The Valspar 2014 Color Outlook draws on this trend, with color palettes that are inspired by how people are purposefully incorporating these redefined experiences into their daily lives.”
