Paint Colors of My Little House...

All the rooms in my house are painted with Sherwin Williams paint.  You can buy paint much cheaper at Home Depot or Lowes and I'm sure others may choose Benjamin Moore over Sherwin Williams, but I like to stick with what works and I've had great experience with SW paints.   It also helps that my brother owns a painting company and I get an amazing discount at Sherwin Williams.

Can you see a trend?  Besides the splash of color in our basement bathroom, all the other rooms are cool tones.  My house is small, so it's very important that the colors throughout our house flow nicely together.
{Living Room} 
SW Balanced Beige
This room was recently painted last year and it's one of my favorite colors in the house.   The living room gets a ton of light, so the color tends to change throughout the day.   Sometimes it leans towards gray and other times beige.  

{Dining Room}
SW Custom Color
It took me three tries to get the color right in this room.  My first attempt was too gold and the second too light.  Now, It's the right combination of yellow and green.

{Master Bedroom}
SW Worldly Gray

{Owen's Room}
SW Rainwashed

{Paige's Room}
SW Great Green
I am in the middle of redecorating my daughter's room and am currently painting her walls SW Pearly white.  Update coming soon!

{Hall Bathroom}
SW Coastal Plain

{Master Bathroom}
SW Interesting Aqua

SW Amazing Gray

{Basement Bathroom}
SW Japaleno
I definitely went out on a limb when choosing this paint color.  I wanted a fun color that wasn't too red or orange and JalapeƱo was the perfect in-between color.  It's the same color that I used on the  dresser in my son's room.

I've been known to repaint my rooms quite frequently, so these colors are bound to change in the near future.

  2. Your house is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas. Can you tell me what color your front door is?

    1. I wish I could remember, but unfortunately this was so long ago. I recently painted my front door with Sherwin Williams Iron ore, so it's no longer blue. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

  3. Your blog provided us with valuable information to work with. Each & every tips of your post are awesome. Thanks a lot for sharing. Keep blogging..
