I get asked a lot about the paint colors used throughout my home. Obviously I used all blue and gray paint colors – my name isn’t by accident! I worked with the talented Alicia Weaver Designs firm to bring my vision to life. She taught me so much during the design process.
Tips for picking paint colors:
- Choose a palette you like and use them throughout entire home.
- Don’t “paint stamp.” In other words, avoid red in one room, blue in another and green in one. For a cohesive look use three or so colors throughout home within the palette.
- I prefer Matte finish for walls. It’s more expensive paint but cleans easier.
- If budget doesn’t allow painting whole house, remember the idea to “work in the direction you’re going.” Read more about that in this post I wrote!
