April 27, 2019

Looking for a way to jazz up your staircase?  I have been researching ideas for my new home and somehow came across photos of wallpapering up the stairs. It really caught my eye and I just love the look:

Be sure to go with a dramatic, bold pattern when featuring wallpaper on one wall such as the staircase:

The Only Five Trim Whites Paints You Need to Know

April 1, 2019

Are you someone who has  just as much trouble selecting a trim color as you do the main wall color? Over the years of color consulting, I have found  that 95% of the time, I use the same few whites for trim again and again. I have worked with these Benjamin Moore trim colors so I know they work well and I trust them.

Here are my five favorite Ben Moore go- to trim colors that you will ever need to know:

White Dove OC -17

I love White Dove because it works so well with many paint colors. An off-white , not a bright white,  I think it as a creamy warm color.  White Dove works best with the popular greige paint colors such as Revere Pewter and Edgecomb Gray:
