TYE STREET PROJECT: PAINT PALETTE

(Missed the intro? You can read all about the Tye Street Project here and even see some before pictures!) I’ve always loved paint chips. Whenever I ended up at Home Depot when I was a kid, I would grab a handful of my favorite paint chips (visual candy? more like visual potato chips). The colors are fun to sort through, and the names are even more interesting. Oh what fun it would be to name paint colors all day! Some of the names aren’t quite right but for others the name is SPOT-ON and it makes the color even better. I had so much fun picking out colors for this project – I was shooting for a sophisticated masculine vibe that was a little edgy and dramatic. I ended up with some moody grays and a peaceful green and blue. Recognize the colors from this Instagram?

(All of these paint colors are by Behr) For the living room, dining room and kitchen, I left the ceiling and crown moldings white to keep the room from getting too dark, and in the entry the silver reflects some on the ceiling, but it is a bit dark… What do you think? Besides the kitchen, I used the French Silver on the master bedroom ceiling, reminiscent of sky-blue porch ceilings in the South. I didn’t paint the second bedroom because it was painted all white (rather than beige like the rest of the house). I’ve started moving in furniture so I can’t wait to share more inspiration and product details next week… Stay tuned!

    the colors are fantastic, and that dark entry looks so cool… i can’t wait to see what you decide to decorate it with!

    also, i’ve taken so many paint chips from home depot over the years that i almost feel guilty, even though they’re free 🙂
