Color Crush: Van Deusen Blue

September 1, 2018

Definitely one of my favorite blues. This grayish blue paint color is from the Benjamin Moore Historical Collection and has been a preferred blue for many homeowners over the years.

I love seeing it used in a semi-gloss finish on cabinets:

This color is a very popular color choice for cabinets in both kitchen and baths: (Do you see the difference in the color with different lighting? That is why it is so important for you to sample paint colors in your home with your lighting.)

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.

I am having the best time working with my new client, Shaunie. She wrote and asked for help with her entryway that she is trying to update and make beautiful:

She grew up near the ocean and loves the colors gray, white, green and blue. You can see that she incorporated these colors with her beautiful dolphin over her front door:

The color she had recently painted was perfect for the room. She had asked me about painting advice for her staircase:

She wanted to paint it black and was just looking for confirmation that it was a good idea:

I think it was a great idea! It looks beautiful so far!

Although we are not quite finished, here is a peek at her design board we put together so far:

Shaunie has been so enthusiastic throughout the project and it’s making the entire experience fun and I am having a great time helping her!

Would you like to see an after photo when she is through putting in all of the finishing touches? She is working so quickly and excitedly, she will be finished in no time! Right, Shaunie?

Whenever I am asked what my favorite gray color is, the first gray that jumps to mind is Ben Moore Revere Pewter HC-172.

I love it because it is such a warm gray and it works so well in many different rooms in the home.This gray works just as well in a kitchen as it does in the living room.

We know what a great neutral gray is and revere pewter is no exception. You can pair with blues, greens, blacks, and orange. But unlike a lot of other grays, you can use revere pewter with dark brown.

So when my new friend Rosie contacted me for an online color consultation, she asked me if I could suggest a pretty color for her dining room that would work with her artwork and existing furnishings.  She had painted the kitchen, which is visible from the dining room, with Ben Moore Flora AF-470, (a green), that we also had to work with. The before color on the wall below is Interlude AF-135.  She felt the color was reading too ‘pink’ on the walls and also boring.  She contacted me to help her because she knew the look she wanted but needed help with her color choices.

As you can see, the black furniture and the artwork would work beautifully with a gray and Rosie was excited to try a gray.  I looked at various grays with the Flora color and I kept coming back to the Revere Pewter because I have worked with it before and I knew it was a beautiful color. Plus it looked great with the kitchen color Flora. Another gray we looked at was Chelsea Gray HC-168. It also went well with the kitchen color, but we thought it might be too dark with the flooring and furniture.

After painting with revere pewter:

Don’t you think it came out beautiful?  It looks so fresh and clean. Rosie loves it and so do I.  Rosie: “WOW!   I love the Revere Pewter!  It is so pretty and goes great with Flora. The Manchester looks very nice also.  Even my husband who was very bitter because of  repainting loves it.  I am very happy!  All the rooms flow well now.  Thank you so much!  You are awesome!  I will send some pics when the sun goes down more for better lighting.  Thank you Kelly!”
