Paint Colors

Believe it or not we only have like 6 paint colors in our house. (Not including my girls rooms that’s their space.) 

I have a post on all of our exterior selections you can find here


The layout of our home is so open, I felt the colors needed to mesh all together. And to be honest, it was overwhelming trying to pick a ton of colors anyway. 

I found this palette with Urbane Bronze by Sherwin Williams. It was the perfect warm gray tone I wanted. I love a warmer, brown gray as opposed to a cool, purple toned gray. 

I knew I wanted my bookcases in our living room to be this dark color. Everything sort of built around those. I needed a light, neutral gray to balance these cabinets and it so happened this color stick had all the colors. 


We used SW (Sherwin Williams) Amazing Gray 7044 on our entire bottom floor. The walls in our kitchen, great room, mudroom, foyer and stairway are all Amazing gray. 


For cabinets I initially wanted gray. The Worldly gray color is much more gray to my eyes on the color stick. For some reason, I’m not totally sure why, but this color; Worldly Gray, reads so creamy greige in our house. I have grown to kinda love it. Our kitchen cabinets, and baby gates are this color. Our island is stained using a spray stain by NGR in brown. 

Our trim color in our whole house is SW Alabaster 7008. Our dining room built in is also Alabaster. 


Our bedroom is SW Intellectual Gray 7045. It’s a beautiful and tranquil color. It looks great with our SW Sea Salt 6204 bath. This is the only color I took that wasn’t on the color stick. Sea salt is a great color that looks very different in different spaces. It’s actually more a green toned color but reads more blue in our house. 



Our basement we continued this same color scheme. We used shiplap wood instead of drywall. It’s painted SW Worldly Gray 7043.

Our cabinets are SW Intellectual Gray 7045. The bar is stained shiplap wood in Minwax Provencial. 

I hope this is helpful for all those who have asked for our paint colors.
