Properly, since that publish, we’ve performed much more initiatives and room reveals round right here. It was lastly time to publish a brand new weblog publish itemizing all the paint colours you could find in our house.

Our Dwelling’s Paint Shade Palette
At present, I wished to dive into our house’s paint shade palette, sharing the colours we have now all through each room in our home. Past that, I need to speak about making a cohesive look all through your private home. Should you’re portray each room a distinct shade, you need to be certain that issues work properly collectively, or else it can really feel disjointed and uneven.
Should you check out all the above colours, you’ll discover that they’re all very totally different (whites, tans, greens, blues), however they by some means work properly collectively. How? All of them have a heat and softness to them. Regardless that the blues and greens would historically be seen as “cool” colours, their bases have a heat to them.
I might counsel sticking to chill tones or heat tones when selecting colours. Listed below are a couple of different tricks to create a cohesive paint shade palette for your home…
- When you have an open flooring plan, maintain the connecting partitions the identical shade. For instance, many of the partitions in our house are painted Benjamin Moore’s “Ballet White”.
- Maintain trim and doorways constant. For instance, many of the millwork in our house is Benjamin Moore’s “Merely White.” Nevertheless, there are some exceptions. The baseboards are painted the identical because the wall shade in our bolder rooms.
- Restrict daring colours to totally enclosed rooms like bedrooms or bogs.
- Create a temper board (utilizing this tutorial) to see your whole varied paint colours collectively in a single space earlier than portray. You need to be certain that they work properly collectively earlier than you whip out that paint brush.

It’s a fairly gentle navy that works properly as a daring accent shade.
Doorways & Trim – Benjamin Moore “Merely White”
After we purchased our house, I had all the doorways and trim painted “Merely White” and it’s served us properly. Most just lately, I painted six doorways in our newly renovated basement and I opted for that very same shade. On all of our millwork and doorways, I used a satin sheen for a bit further sturdiness.
Predominant Tub – Benjamin Moore “Rockport Grey” & “Ballet White”
In the principle lavatory, we at all times had “Ballet White” on our partitions. After we renovated the area final spring, I made a decision to do beadboard on the underside portion so as to add some depth and dimension. I painted the woodwork the colour “Rockport Grey”, and I really like the distinction in opposition to the “Ballet White” up prime. It’s a heat grey that offers off moody vibes.
Predominant Bed room – Benjamin Moore “Boothbay Grey”
About two years in the past, I gave our fundamental bed room a makeover. It simply felt a tad boring and wanted some character. I really like a relaxing blue shade in a bed room and “Boothbay Grey” was the fitting name. When deciding on a blue shade, I wished one thing that might work properly with the wallpaper on our ceiling. This matches properly and it has heat undertones, making it cohesive with the furnishings within the area. In order for you a blue/grey paint shade, this is perhaps the one for you!

Fortunately, it labored out nice and it appears actually recent subsequent to the crisp white subway tile. I feel it’s a enjoyable shade for a youngsters’ area.
Ellis’ Room – Benjamin Moore “Tarrytown Inexperienced”
Welcome to the coziest room in the home…Ellis’ nursery. This darkish inexperienced simply envelopes you and makes you need to take a nap! Ellis loves his darkish and moody room and I feel he sleeps properly due to it. Every time we’ve had mates nap their youngsters at our home, they use Ellis’ room and at all times comment on how properly their kids sleep. I feel it’s due to these blackout curtains, together with the “Tarrytown Inexperienced” on the partitions. My solely remorse right here is conserving the baseboards white. If I may return, I might paint them the identical darkish inexperienced because the partitions. Sometime, I’ll get a while and do this. Sometime.
Dwelling Workplace – Valspar “Chimney Smoke”
In our workplace, the principle partitions are all “Ballet White” after which on one of many partitions I put in this wall mural with brilliant and lightweight colours. When we DIY’ed the built-ins, I knew that we needed to go daring with shade. “Chimney Smoke” ended up being the proper navy shade for these. I typically get questions in regards to the paint shade as a result of for some folks it reads extra like a darkish grey. In our home, it’s a deep navy shade and positively extra blue than grey. I even used this paint shade on our basement vainness as a result of I liked it a lot. In order for you a darkish blue, that is it!
Basement – Clare “Greige”
