Before & After

My husband’s nephew Jonathan and his wife Megan recently built an addition on their existing home. They gained three bedrooms, a big new kitchen, dining room, playroom and living room. They are a young couple with a little 3 year old sweetheart named Kailey and her ten month old little brother Cameron. Meg and I were talking at a recent family gathering and I told her that I would love to help her pick colors for her new home!

The above picture is their new den/family room. Below is the before picture:

One reason I love the color Ben Moore Fernwood Green is because it works well with so many other colors. I knew the color would be great for a young family that will be growing and will always give them the flexibility to change any item throughout the room.

In the photo below, I wanted to demonstrate how a color will always lighten when painted up on the wall. See how much darker the sample is against the wall?:

It is also a beautiful color for a room with a lot of light. Below is a picture of the kitchen before:

Meg had a sample of her countertop when we choose colors so we used that to help select a color for the walls. Here is the kitchen below that was painted Shaker Beige:

Do you see the red wall? Here it is before painting:

And here it is with some personality!:

Meg wanted a fun color that would ‘pop’ so your eye would be drawn forward from the kitchen into the next room. I think the BM Caliente AF-290 did the trick and worked beautifully. Don’t you love her mirror art? Looks great!

Here is the master bedroom before:

This picture came out a little fuzzy below, but I wanted to show you how well it works with the Fernwood Green (color brought up the stairs):

Meg and Jon plan to use this room as an office someday. Did you notice how the color looks different in the different lighting?

I saved the best for last. Here is a picture of the Princess Kailey’s room before:

Below is Kailey’s room after painting with Ben Moore Angelina 1376:

The color in the photo looks pinker than the actual color sample.

Look how pretty it looks where her mom put the stencils on her headboard. And here is the beautiful princess resting for just a quick minute:

She would not let me take picture of her unless she was jumping on the bed! So I did get quite a few motion shots. And here is sweet, little Cameron:

I really had a fun visit with the family when I came to take pictures. Jon and Meg are so pleased with their new home and the new colors which really makes me happy. Kailey was sad when I had to leave, but look at the picture she made for me!:

I hope you enjoyed the tour! What do you think of our color choices?
