You all asked……so I’m finally answering. I’ve always shared what paint colors I’ve used, but I’ve never put a post together of them all in one spot before. I realize what a pain it must have been if you saw a color you liked and tried to find out what it was. Even I had a hard time trying to find the right post that mentioned the color on the walls. So in an effort to better organize the blog I’ve put all of our house colors in one easy to find post. You’ll be able to find the above button on the sidebar from here on out, and I’ll try to do my best to keep this post updated as other rooms get painted and finished.

Just fyi for the local peeps – I often have colors matched in Coronado brand paint which is sold at Perspectives, a local Lexington paint shop where most of the pros buy their paint. They are able to match paint colors extremely well, and I really love that brand although it is a bit more expensive. However, I’ve also used the Valspar brand quite a bit and have been pleased with the quality. In rooms that don’t get a ton of usage like bedrooms I rarely worry about paint quality, but in the main living areas I prefer to spend a little more for a good quality, washable paint.
Do you have a favorite brand of paint?
