FAQ – paint colors

I’ve had a number of emails asking me about the paint colors used in my home.  So, I thought it might be helpful to put all that info in one post.  You can click the photo to take you to the post with more photos.  Don’t you just love how paint is fickle and changes colors on different walls and with different light 😉

I’m feeling the need for a change.  After painting Izzy’s room gray, I’m thinking my walls downstairs need to slip into this color as well.  And after 3 years of tiny, sticky hands – they could use a little refreshing 😉

    Your spaces are so pretty, Shelley! I do love that grey in Izzy's room. It's so soft and easy on the eyes.

    i think that nimbus cloud is a favorite- it's the perfect shade to let those fun colors pop and still be very soothing.

    Hi I just found your blog and I'm wondering if you can tell me the name of the fabric you used on your living room window treatments.

    Thanks, Shari

    Ever since I saw your daughter's room I've been obsessed with Nimbus Gray and hope to use it at some point.

    Do you know the color on your island as well? Did you paint a lot of your furniture black or paint it yourself? I need to paint pretty much my entire house and have been partial to tan with white and black and pops of red. I was thinking of doing my kitchen green but now after seeing yours, I'm thinking of using a beigish color throughout.

      Not sure you'll see this or not Vicki, but the kitchen island is a basic premixed black I picked up at the hardware store. The buffet in the kitchen is painted with the same black. Hope this helps!
