Yesterday, I told you I tested a sample of Benjamin Moore’s Iced Slate for my son’s room. He wanted a blue-ish gray but after I painted the board, I thought it looked a little lavender in certain light. I waited to get his reaction before I said anything.
He took one look at it and said,”I don’t like it. It looks purple!”
So, it’s back to the drawing board with that!
In the meantime, I thought I would show you the paint colors that I have used in my house….
(All paints are Benjamin Moore)…
Foyer: Bone White
Living Room: Bone White
Custom Mix – similar to Sherwin Williams Red Bay
which I loved at my friend’s house. (I was trying to match the rug)
Since then, I have updated the paint in my dining room to this color.
Kitchen: Monroe Bisque (my kitchen has since been updated)
Family Room: Monroe Bisque
Back Hallway: Monroe Bisque
(Although it looks quite yellow in this picture!)
Guest Bath: Saybrook Sage
This room is now my office! You can see more of this room here – Office Reveal.
Laundry Room: Providence Olive
Conservatory: Providence Olive
(kind of a dark picture…sorry!)
Big Kid Room: Bright and Early
The color has been updated to Amsterdam.
Little Kid Room: Linen White
You might wonder why “Little Kid” has a big bed
and “Big Kid” has a twin…
Well, “Little Kid” took over the guest room
and we just never switched them.
“Big Kid” has not let me forget this though…
Ok, so what’s missing? Husband’s office…white but too messy right now, Kids’ bathroom…Hawthorne yellow, but changing some things…Kids’ basement playroom…Navajo White but WAY too messy to show! (We have all the toys piled up from the upstairs playroom)
I have not been able to keep up with certain things since our furball arrived.
So, as I said, the next painting project will be my son’s room….as soon as he decides on a color that is!
What is your next paint project?
By the way…my most asked about color is…
