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 and Jessica Bradley Interiors 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!
