Our home is nearly completely painted! All that’s left are bedrooms and bathrooms. I am so excited that our home now feels more like “us.”
We ended up choosing Benjamin Moore’s “Revere Pewter” for the majority of our home. When your home is as open-concept as ours is, you really need to use a paint color that transitions well from space to space---so, because our kitchen, dining room and living room don’t have any walls in between them, we opted for something fresh, crisp and airy.
You may remember when I posted about choosing the perfect gray and I truly think that Revere Pewter is the lightest gray you can get that doesn’t have blue, green or purple undertones to it. It truly is a clean, gorgeous light gray. It looks very…elegant. I guess that’s a good way to describe it. It’s also very subtle…but in a good way. It contrasts nicely against bright white trim, but it’s not dramatic like darker colors can be (we are saving those for the bedrooms).
The one thing we did add is an accent wall where the double doors go out to our balcony. We wanted to have one wall that was a bit darker and we absolutely love it. We love the color so much that we are also going to use it in our master bedroom and my closet. It’s Martha Stewart’s “Flagstone” matched to BEHR’s Ultra paint.
Here are some photos of our main living area and entryway:
Other colors we are using in our home will be:
Guest Bedroom & Bath: Fashion Gray by BEHR
Half Bath: Fashion Gray by BEHR
Master Bedroom & Closet: Flagstone by Martha Stewart
Master Bath: Seine by Valspar color matched to BEHR paint
More painting updates will come as they happen! I love that I can decorate more now and put artwork on the walls. It feels good to have a home painted just like you want it.
Just as a side note, we hired painters (the same ones who painted half of our last home). They do a great job and we have high ceilings so it can be hard for just the two of us to do it. We really like how crisp and clean everything is when professionals do it, but of course it’s a total DIY project if you want it to be (we painted half of our last home).
