Product of the Month - A Fresh Coat of Paint

If a full remodel isn't in the cards for you right now, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a space! Your walls and ceilings are the largest canvases for interior color design so put them to work for you. Below are some of our favorite shades for all over paint, but before we get started, here are a few tips:

  • If the final result you are looking for is more about a refresh and less about a specific color, consider purchasing paint from the "mistake" bin. Every store has an area in the paint department with this paint; the color doesn't come out correctly, the customer isn't happy with the color they had mixed, or possibly returns. These cans are typically sold at a greatly reduced price. Even if you need more than what is in the bin, you'll start off with savings.
  • If you are flexible on when you will complete your painting, do your homework. Paint sales are common, shop around for the best one. Also verify price matching at stores if you like a certain brand of paint.
  • Any store can create a color from any brand of paint. If you like a color from one manufacturer, you don't need to only purchase from that manufacturer or pick their color that is closest to what you want. However, you do need to provide them with something to match so make sure you bring your selected paint swatches to the store when purchasing.

 

Behr Juniper Breeze N420-1

All over color is not relegated to whites, grays, and beiges. Soft greens are lovely touch in any home, just remember to keep the undertone neutral.

 

Benjamin Moore Toasted Pecan 1209

Terra cotta is a great way to add really stunning color while not being bright. We love this shade especially knowing it won't overwhelm the space. 

 

Glidden Muslin White 82YY 85/038

If you like things on the simple side, a gorgeous ivory might be more your speed. When selecting, make sure the undertone for your ivory isn't too yellow. 

 

PPG Statue Garden PPG0996-3

When selecting a gray, we like to go one or two shades darker than the lightest shade; it adds a bit of punch but still provides a neutral backdrop to add accents. 

 

Sherwin Williams Settlement SW 9594

Ready to amp up the drama? This bold taupe is a great neutral with a lot to say. We really love the contrast it creates with crisp, white trim.

 

Valspar Nostalgia 4007-6A

Lastly, a slate blue. Slate blue is a great all-over color with a lot of sway; more gray undertone for those that lean neutral, more blue undertone for those that love color but don't want to go full bright.

 

Our residential palettes include a mix of grounded neutrals and dramatic colors. Take a look at a few of our favorites!
