Reader’s Questions Answered

April 2, 2017

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:

Selecting a Sofa For Beige Painted Walls

November 12, 2016

My sister-in-law recently asked if I could help her find a new sofa for her family room. It is a well used, busy room for an active family and is a really nice and bright sunny spot in their home.

Lynn’s existing family room wall color is Ben Moore Shaker Beige:

Before she even went shopping, I gave her a few tips to remember:

*   Bring a painted sample  of your wall color to the store. The bigger the better I say.

*   FYI- When looking at various sofas, if you like the comfort and design of the piece, but not the fabric, there are other choices of fabric to choose from. There are usually around six to twelve other colors of fabric that you can choose from for the same cost. There are also other fabric options, but that is getting into custom and that means the price tag will go up. Just so you know that you have other choices besides the sample on the floor. The store never seems to mention that!Read More
