my house paint colors

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

We all know how hard it can be to find the right color of paint for our house.  You bring home a trunk full of samples, but then they all suck once you hold them up.  Ugh.  I lucked out when I chose the color in this house.  I absolutely love it.  And, thank God for that because it covers every wall and ceiling in here.  The overall feel is white, but against the bright white trim you can tell it's a light gray.

The walls and ceilings throughout are all PPG (Pittsburgh Paints) Palomino Gray.  Trim is PPG White Chip.  I've included a lot of pictures so you can see how it changes depending on the time of day and amount/type of light it gets.  You can click on the titles to visit the rooms for more info and photos.

Kitchen cabinets are Sherwin-Williams Snowbound.  I'm sorry, but I don't know the black used on the kitchen island and master vanities, but it is another Sherwin-Williams color.

Shiplap in the kids' bathrooms is Benjamin Moore Simply White.  It's almost identical to the Sherwin-Williams Snowbound used on the kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities.

The mudroom and laundry built-ins are also Benjamin Moore Simply White.

Remind me how in love with it I am should I get a wild hair 10 years from now ;)


  1. I just went today got samples of BM Simply White and PPG Palomino Gray for our new house :) Hope it looks at amazing as yours!!

    1. Woohoo!!!!! I can't wait to see what you end up going with!

  2. Your house is insane. Okay? I can't say it enough. And also, I swear I was just poking around here the other day looking for your paint colors, so thank you very much for this post, it's like you read my mind!!! Spooky.

    1. That is ca-razy!!!! Maybe I can start a side gig reading minds ;D Probably won't do very well since I can't even figure out mine most of the time, lol!

  3. I never used to care about these things until I spent a summer working in the paint section of a hardware shop; having to talk to customers about the tiniest differences in paint colours all day makes you pick up on that much more later. The subtle gradient in your paint tones is exquisite, and it really brings the different rooms together.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, you guys totally make my day!
