Our Paint Colors

As it gets closer to moving day, I have been thinking about cataloging some of the things we have done to our first home.  Last week, I took updated photos of our home and updated our Before and After’s, sharing a few of them with you.

In doing this I realized I never have posted about the interior paint colors used throughout our home.  I have sent out several emails answering questions about our paint colors, but have never posted them.  I have to be honest, I don’t have all of them.  Many of the colors we have used were custom mixes and I do not have records of them.

Today I put together a list of the paint colors, that I do have,  that we have used in our home over the past few years…

I hope this helps.  I use a lot of soft warm gray on the walls.  My two favorite’s in our home are Sherwin Williams 7017 Dorian Gray, used in the living room and the soft gray I recently used in our kitchen Olympic Quill.

  12. The pictures have come out so well and I am sure the colours in reality also look superb on the walls of your house. My favourite is Dorian Grey. I must mention you have done a great job with the dark tone of colours also like the Valspar Dark Fig.
