Paint Colors


OK , I am so sorry for being so late with this post. I had to go out of town unexpectedly and did not get to post before I left. Melissa at 320 Sycamore is hosting on June 4th.

I hope you will get to see this anyway. I love painting with color. It is so much fun and easy to change when you tire of a color. Hopefully you choose colors that you love,so you don't have to change so often.

I love using Benjamin Moore paints the best. Their color palette is fabulous and always has a great selection of warm colors. The paint is easy to roll on and usually covers in one coat.

My newest color that is a favorite of mine is Warm Cognac. I painted a bathroom we renovated this color. I love it.
It is a fairly new color and paint from Benjamin Moore. The paint is a little more difficult to work with, only because you have to do your trim work first and let it completely dry for 24 hrs. You paint it on and leave it do not go over again and again or you start taking off the color. Then the next day you can roll the color on, only rolling down once and overlap your strokes. Use a thick roller. Once you get the technique down it is fabulous paint and has a great depth of color. Only one coat needed and touching up is really easy.

I also recently re-painted my daughter's room. I also used a Benjamin Moore Aura paint. The color is Turmeric. It is a warm neutral tone with a touch of gold look to it.

Unfortunately when you take pictures with natural light and artificial light the color changes. Both the above picture and below are the same color and same room. I hate when that happens.

Again I so apologize for being tardy with this post. I hope you enjoy it and head on over to Melissa at 320 Sycamore for more awesome colors. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Come again soon!
