Blue & Beige Bedroom Consultation

January 28, 2016

I have been working online with a woman from Chicago on her bedroom redesign. She found me on Pinterest on my design boards here.  Her design plan is coming out so nice I just wanted to share. Her bedroom was already painted in Revere Pewter and she just needed a little help finding bedding, window treatments and a few accessories that would work well together with the Revere.

Online Color Consultation

September 16, 2015

I was recently contacted by a gentleman in Dallas, Texas. He wondered if I could help him choose colors for the first floor of his large open concept home:

He was great at giving me details:

* Our new home is predominately painted in warm neutral colors – brown, gold, cream.
* The current color of all trim (base/crown/doors/windows and Kitchen) is Huntington Beige.
* My goal is really to just update the colors in the home. While I like the existing colors – I would like to move away from the golds and browns and move towards a “newer” color pallet.
* Thus far, I have the intention of painting the formal dining room chelsea gray since it is a warmer gray.
* I would really like to focus on the living room, foyer, and kitchen – since they all connect with one another.
* The kitchen cabinets are also painted in Huntington Beige, but were glazed with what appears to be light brown.

So we have two major items to consider when choosing a paint color for this space which is the green undertones of the Huntington Beige trim and the stone fireplace.

The first color I thought of was Grant Beige HC-83. It may be a little boring for a color, but it is just beautiful on the walls! Plus, it will work well with both the trim and the stone in fireplace:

Another color I suggested he sample is Sandyhook Gray HC-108. It would be a little more dramatic than the Grant Beige and just as gorgeous:

My thinking behind my choices are that they are both great ‘updated’ neutrals  and both get away from the golds and browns. The Grant Beige and the Sandyhook Gray also have the same undertones as the trim and the stone which will work perfect!

He also stated that he would like to paint the dining room with Chelsea Gray HC-168 which will also work well with either the Grant Beige or Sandyhook Gray.

Both colors can be used with greens, blues, turquoise, grays and many more in accessories and fabric.

He is now looking at my suggestions and going to sample both. I will let you know what he chooses. Hopefully I can ask him to send after photos! What do you think of these color selections?

I am getting on a plane again tomorrow for the next week. I am going to Chicago for my sister’s wedding and the whole family is going! So excited!

Have a great week everyone!

She said that she smiles every time she walks into the room. I think that is the best compliment I can receive, don’t you agree?

Thanks so much for sharing your after photos with us Nina!
