• my home paint colors!

    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!
