Hemlock

This is a paint submission I got from an awesome reader. She said this:
“After searching through about 5 fan decks, stressing like crazy (and maybe shedding a tear), and purchasing about a HUNDRED dollars worth of paint samples (I know, crazy), I finally found the perfect paint colors for my home.  I love every color I chose... Revere Pewter @ 150% (50% more pigment) for the majority of my house, regular Revere Pewter for my family room, Quiet Moments for my kitchen, and attached to this email is Benjamin Moore's Hemlock in my dining room.
I wanted to go with something a little more bold for the dining room.  It is bold, but not too much.  It is a color that looks more blue in the morning, and more green in the evening, but always a kind of teal, and always with a grey undertone.
Thanks for keeping this helpful blog!  I definitely used it a lot during my paint search, and felt a need to contribute as well.”

Home Tours {paint color scheme ideas}

A few weeks ago I was down in Utah visiting family and had the chance to go to the Utah Valley Parade of Homes. Love this – because not only does it show you the new and best trends happening in the home world, and awesome decorating ideas, but I love seeing what paint colors the designers chose and what color schemes they put together. So for the next few posts I am going to show a few of the homes I went to and of course give you the paint colors.
First off – a lovely blue/green door. Paint color: Green Trance by Sherwin-Williams.

In this cute sitting room the paint color behind the stenciling is also Green Trance by Sherwin Williams, and the paint color to the left of it is Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams.
Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams - warm gray
 Agreeable Gray was the main color throughout the home. This is one of my favorite “warm” grays and is a wonderful neutral. It’s the perfect back drop for the accent accessories used throughout the home (notice how many colors it goes with).Agreeable Gray - family room paint colorAgreeable Gray - Favorite Paint ColorsAgreeable Gray - Favorite Paint ColorsAgreeable Gray - Favorite Paint Colors for bedroom
Don’t you love the play ball frames above the bed?
Next up is the office – painted Foggy Day by Sherwin Williams.

I know picking out a color scheme for a home can be kind of overwhelming and it definitely helps to see what others have done. Stay tuned for more paint colors and color schemes from the Parade of Homes. I hope ya’ll are having an awesome summer!
