We are getting so so close and are all very excited to see everything come together. This weekend we are painting. I honestly thought my husband was crazy, when he said we would save the painting for (one of) the last projects. A few months ago, he primed everything, and then painted the bathrooms and the ceilings in the girls’ bedrooms. His logic to save the main rooms of the house for last, was that it was easier to have the woodwork/trim installed first, and then putty all the nail holes. He also didn’t want anything getting scratched up from other projects, and then we would have to go back and do touch ups. So while our house has been a monotone (primer) white for the past few months, we are finally adding some color.. and I am so excited!
A few months ago, I met with a color consultant from Sherwin Williams. I knew I wanted our home to be bright and crisp.. accentuating all the beautiful natural light. I was so overwhelmed with the many options of white, but with the In-Home Consultation, she helped me narrow it down and coordinate the other colors. I am so grateful for her help and love every color we picked out! So here they are..
Pure White | all of our trim + doors
Zurich White | the main areas of the house (kitchen, living room + hallways, as well as the girls’ bedroom walls + bathroom)
Shoji White | master bedroom
Opaline | master bathroom
Cyberspace | this will be painted shiplap on either side of the fireplace
Heron Plume | laundry/mudroom
Crushed Ice | half bathroom
Faint Coral | painted on the ceiling of both girls’ bedrooms
Some of these colors look so similar, but are so very different with the lighting in the house. The Play of Light and Color is a great article that helped me understand the impact that lighting can have. Color changes throughout the day, and I made sure to take my swatches and compare the effects.
I can’t wait to finally have some color and share the final spaces!
