Favorite Paint Colors

I’m joining Melissa over at 320 Sycamore for a paint party today, so I’ll show you a few paint colors I have in my home...the ones I can identify at least. I now only use Sherwin Williams paint, but before I discovered Sherwin Williams I used paint mainly from Lowes or had it custom mixed at Lowes so I don't have names for those paint colors.

If you are looking for a great fresh lime about Sherwin Williams Sassy Green? That is the color Callie chose for her bedroom. I think it looks great! Not too bright, just right!

Now my 20 yr old daughter, Aubrie wanted a serene grey on her walls, so she chose Sherwin Williams Gray Screen. Her room is very calming...just what she wanted.

When I tore down my wallpaper in my kitchen I thought, hmmm...what color should I paint the walls. Well the best way to get a good flow from room to room is to use colors from the attached rooms. So my living room/dining room is attached to my kitchen so I pulled in the sage green from my sofa and chose Sherwin Williams Clary Sage.

Take Care

I am a Sherwin Williams fan also. I especially like the Sassy Green and the black furniture looks sharp against it. I am getting ready to paint my guest bath Svelte Sage, but Clary Sage was a close second. You have a lovely home. ~Cathy~

LOve the green - and zebra, my youngest two are putting a similar color on their walls and my oldest two are using zebra bedding for half their stuff. Your daughter's room looks very fun!
