I’ve loved this first big renovation project and as our first baby fixer-upper is nearly complete I’m making sure I have all the resources tucked away for easy reference down the road. I love seeing before and after photos of home renovation projects but a lot of times you only get to see just one room.
When making style and design choices it is helpful to see how each room color flows into the next and how the whole house is cohesive in its esthetic.
For this post, I’m sharing nearly every room in the home and the specific interior paint colors we chose.
It’s a creamy off-white and is a simple warm transition from the white subway tile and cabinets. We used it in a bathroom as well as in the main living area in our beach house and I feel it took on a more yellow tone.
I loved the depth and warmth of this brown in contrast with the board and batten trim (painted in White Dove by Benjamin Moore). I first fell in love with this perfect light gray when we were living in our last house and I knew I wanted to do it again in my office once we moved.
It is the most absolute perfect gray and I have now painted it in several rooms in multiple houses and it’s so consistent! Heading upstairs the master bedroom color is Gray Expose by Valspar.
As we transition into the master bathroom the walls are painted a very light gray/green color called Stony Path by Valspar. I wanted to bring in the green/gray tones from the master bedroom but on a lighter and tranquil note.
It’s a color I don’t mind at all and isn’t over-the-top pink but still satisfying for a little girl. It started getting challenging to find a color that worked for the type of room, matched the decor, and still flowed with the rest of the house.
We went with Frappe by Valspar and it’s a happy medium brown/gray that can work with both the warm and cool tones of the house. My husband painted both bathrooms when I was out of town and when I came back I wasn’t happy with how blue the color really was.
