5 Gallons

04/13/2011

Guess who took advantage of Sherwin Williams’s 40% off sale last weekend?

You guessed it … We’re about to repaint the whole house. Almost. Master bedroom. Spare room. Living room. Kitchen. Dining Room.

In my unprofessional opinion, Sherwin Williams has the best color palettes of any paint brand. (Plus the Color Visualizer on their website is pretty cool.) We typically use Behr paint because it’s a bit cheaper but great quality. But 40%? That’s a good deal on some good paint.

In case anyone is wondering, it took us less than 30 minutes to decide on the 3 colors for those 5 rooms because we already knew what we wanted. White for the bedroom. Light gray for the spare room. White with a yellow-green accent wall for the living room – kitchen – dining room. After having NO white walls in the house for more than 4 years, we’re ready to go back to the basics.

Paint Decisions

02/10/2010

We’re considering a few paint choices for the bathroom walls, each in the pale greenish bluish gray range. I saved this photo a while back because I thought Sherwin Williams Window Pane would be perfect with our teal blue and green shower tiles.

(sorry I can’t recall the source.)

But, it’s too light & bright:

Here’s Contented (below):

Rainwashed: (Fitting name.)

And our current top choice, Sea Salt:

Sea Salt actually looks—on the chip and in the above photoshop mock-up—like Window Pane in my inspiration photo, don’t you think?

(Sidenote: I think Sherwin Williams has the best colors. They also have a very cool, interactive Color Visualizer on their website. And they just opened a new store in our neighborhood. Yay!)

Which color do you think works best with our tile?
