Hello my friends! I am finally getting back into the swing of things, after our big move last month, and then the passing of my sweet grandma last week. Life has really been crazy lately. I doubt it will get any less crazy any time soon, but that’s ok! I’m really excited about some things that are coming up soon – I can’t wait to share them with you!
I am very excited to share today’s post with you as well! This is my 3rd “installment” of my whole-house-paint-scheme ideas. My previous 2 have done well on Pinterest, so I say, “give the people what they want!”
The first scheme was the Soothing and Sophisticated palette, and the 2nd was Stormy Skies. Also, in my last post I shared my method for making a digital paint color floor plan, like the ones I use in these posts. This time I chose to keep the palette in shades of gray, because, hey, I just love gray!
Gray is neutral and calming, but has so many variations. It can be paired with any color scheme, design style, and many wood tones. Gray is always a good idea.
If you like the tones of the colors, but think they might feel a bit dark in your home, you can always have them mix your paint at 50% or 75% to acheive a lighter shade.
I chose colors from Benjamin Moore (BM) and Sherwin Williams (SW) because their paints are amazing, they have great online tools, and the best colors. Also, they are used by many designers and it’s easy to find example photos, as many people use their paints.
Here’s the paint scheme on the floor plan. (Here’s how you can make one)
