Accent Color Makes the Room

This beautiful home has some new color that makes it stand out!

Stairs

When you enter, your attention is brought up by the color Retreat from Sherwin-Williams.

Hallway

From this view, Retreat meets up with Sedate Gray also by Sherwin-Williams.

Livingroom

These two colors are also used in the formal living and dining room.  Retreat accents the arch making it a standout  feature.

These colors were selected from the Neutral Nuance Color Collection from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams.

Neutralize to Sell

From Primary colors to Colony Buff

Now when buyers look at this home, the bright colors won’t make them run. Note – I loved the bright colors!  They were fun!

Making it Warm

After living with white walls, it was time to warm things up.

Grand Stand and Flatland

The walls were painted Dutch Boy colors Grand Stand and Flatland.

From Dark to Light

These homeowners wanted a light, bright space.

From Tan & Green to Eggwhite

Changing from colors to cream can be done but it takes some work.  To go to a cream or any white color, the walls have to be primed.  I had the primer tinted to the wall color, Eggwhite by Sherwin-Williams.  I used their Quick-Dry Stain Blocking Primer.  Two coats of the primer was used with a 4 hour dry time between coats.

Color is Eggwhite by Sherwin-Wiliams

Next day, I used Super Paint by Sherwin-Williams in Eggwhite.  Super Paint is primer and paint in one.  Two coats of this paint was also applied to get good coverage.

My Parent’s Barn Window

My parents are retired dairy farmers.  They still live on the farm.  My dad asked me to paint the barn windows.

Barn Window

I used a Exterior Wood Primer by Sherwin-Williams to protect the bare wood.  Then I painted the windows with a latex, satin white paint.  I also had to caulk the windows to get them weather tight.  These windows will be good for several years.

No More Red

For a short video clip of this painting project:  Red to Beach House

This homeowner is selling.  The red was there when they bought the house but now it is gone.

Color changed to Beach House (Sherwin-Williams)

To appeal to more buyer, neutral colors are a good idea.  This is a really nice home.
