Isn't it funny how our tastes change over time? I mean, butter pecan ice cream used to remind me of my Grama, because she loooooooves some butter pecan. But now? It's my ice cream of choice. Maybe that means I'm getting old? Oh well.
Anyway .... let's talk paint. One thing we noticed while getting our old house ready to sell, was just how different the color palette is from our new house.
That house was built in 1930 and had beautiful, original wood trim throughout. The colors we chose were deep, rich, and cozy. They looked gorgeous against the wood trim and I just LOVED choosing a new color for each room, often choosing several colors.
I love the airy quality that these paint colors bring to an already light and bright home. And yet, I try really hard to make sure that the colors still bring a cozy quality. Sherwin-Williams Silverplate was perfect for achieving this in the Living Room/Dining Room.
Even interior rooms with no natural light feel fresh and homey with the right colors. I love the color of our half bathroom (Pantone Illusion Blue) for that very reason.
