Tavern Taupe Around Fireplace

With high vaults, it makes the space more intimate if an earthy color is brought in.

Fireplace

Though it was a light shade of taupe before, Tavern Taupe accents the fireplace walls even more.   The white walls are now Loggia which gives the perfect compliment to the room.

From White to Color

This homeowner was ready to change to color.

Out with the white, in with Barcelona Beige and Dovetail.  Dovetail is the accent wall that spans both the livingroom and diningroom area.  These colors are from the Sherwin-Williams & HGTV’s Liveable Luxe collection.

Neutralize to Sell

Painting neutral colors is a must when putting your house on the market.

From Orange to Colony Buff

Theses rooms are now Colony Buff by Sherwin-Williams.

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!

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.

Mudroom Update

This is my mudroom.  It  has a lot going on.  I have cats & dogs with stuff.  I have kids & a husband that also use this room.

I was tired of the colors and it wasn’t functioning well.  I removed the molding.  I added this cabinet which has its own story on my Fun Projects page.

New colors are Hearts of Palm and Kaffee by Sherwin-Williams

Now it is updated and functional.  I used the color blocking idea that is popular in art right now and applied it to this room.  The Hearts of Palm color by Sherwin-Williams (upper half ) is too light to hide the dirt my dogs get on the walls so I painted the bottom Kaffee by Sherwin-Williams.   I used a level and pencil to mark a line around the room.  Then I used Frog Tape to get that crisp line.

Looks Like New

This living room has new paint and new flooring.

Barcelona Beige by Sherwin-Williams

I painted the main areas in Barcelona Beige by Sherwin-Williams.  I followed the Liveable Luxe combination by Sherwin-Williams and HGTV.  I also installed a new laminate floor.  It is SwiftLock Plus Cordova Cherry.

Kitchen Update

This homeowner had a yellow kitchen and it was not her style. Now that they have lived in the house for 3 years, it was time to update to a warm neutral.

From Yellow to Bagel (Sherwin Williams).

The pictures make it look like a subtle change but it was a perfect change.  It blended well with the adjacent family room which has browns and copper colors.  Also, the color name, Bagel, fits for a kitchen!
