Hey everyone! I thought I would share a few questions from recent clients and readers with informative and useful answers:
* I’m planning on painting our lake house great room Revere Pewter. It has a pitched ceiling with black walnut beam. Stone fireplace in grayish tones. I am following your advice to do casings in White Dove. I would like to add some definition to windows/grids/sliding french doors by adding a darker version of Revere Pewter or something in same color family. Any advice?
Your home sounds beautiful! If you are looking for a darker version of Revere Pewter, take a look at Ben Moore Thunder AF-685:
Thunder is another soft, warm neutral paint color that is very popular today.
Another option you could look at if you are looking for something a little darker, I would suggest a neutral gray such as Chelsea Gray HC-168:
Chelsea Gray is a sophisticated, versatile color that will also work well with your fireplace. One more option to consider is black for your windows and doors:
* I would like to paint my 1990’s Golden Oak kitchen cabinets white, but the remainder of the house has stained trim (windows, doors, floor trim, etc. including the kitchen. How would this look? I cannot find any pictures.
Thanks for writing! Yes, I think it would work. You do not see many pictures online yet, but here are a couple photos below where you can see the white cabinets with the stained trim and I think it looks lovely. Homeowner’s are mixing white with more natural wood products and I know the trend will just keep growing!
An amazing white paint color to use for the cabinets is Ben Moore Mascarpone AF-20. With it’s creamy yellow undertones, it is a perfect choice with yellow oak trim:
* Another client I am working with now was having a hard time choosing an exterior color for his home with his red roof:
I have seen grays and white paint colors used with the red but my personal favorite is tan:
I hope you have learned something new, beneficial and useful to you! Have a great week everyone.
