We’ve been asked on a couple of occasions for the names of our paint colors, and we thought it’d be best to dedicate a post to them. So now if anyone is ever curious about any of our colors, they can just check here. One of the perks/punishments of being married to a designer is our extensive color palette. While, yes, it would be boring to use the same shade of off-white in all your rooms, sometimes I have found myself wondering “do we really need 17 unique colors in every house we’ve ever lived in?” I can barely coordinate two colors, so I’m always amazed at how Stephanie is able to see how all the colors will relate to each other, even before they’re on the wall. My brain doesn’t work that way, so I just don’t get it. I can recall only twice where she wanted to change a color after getting the room painted…and that’s probably out of at least 40 paint jobs (scarily, we’ve lived in 4 different houses in the last 12 years). Anyway, here’s what we’ve got in this one. By the way, I copied much of this from a reply Stephanie left on another post, so if you want more detail, check here.
Foyer: the red looks much richer in real life than it does in the photo. It’s Sherwin Williams Rembrandt Ruby SW0033. This is probably my favorite color in the entire house. The ceiling is Sherwin Williams Hubbard Squash SW0044.
Living room: walls are Miller Paint Green Acre 8144M (Stephanie chose this one to match the green in the shades on our light fixtures – bungalow greens are usually a little more olive-toned.) Ceiling is Sherwin Williams Hubbard Squash SW0044.
Dining room: Walls are a Miller Paint custom mix (recipe: 05M0470,B – 6,C – 2 x 44, F – 3 x 28,W – 5 X 32, P/G). I have no idea what that all means, but supposedly it results in a pretty cool color. Stephanie says that Miller Sunburst 7845D is pretty similar to this. Ceiling is Sherwin Williams Hubbard Squash SW0044.
Kitchen: Walls are Miller Paint Fog Buoy 8574M. Ceiling was “a very custom mix – we mixed some buttery yellow paint we already had with ceiling white to achieve a creamy color that matched the caramel-swirled art glass in our kitchen light fixtures”
Bathroom: Lowe’s Spongebob Squarepants collection Seaweed. Ceiling is just standard “ceiling white” paint.
Upstairs, main room: Miller Paint’s Pekoe Tea 7673M. (Miller has changed their palette since we painted the playroom – this color is no longer in their fan deck, but they do still have the recipe in their database.)
Chloe’s room: Not recommended for anyone other than 4 year old girls! Sherwin Williams Impatient Pink 3854. I never knew the name before looking it up just now, and somehow it seems very appropriate for Chloe!
