The House Colors We Picked!

Picking out paint colors is HARD! There are literally a billion options of each shade and depending on the lighting, it can show up VERY differently in your space. That being said, we did our research and I feel really good about our choices...so I'm here to share them today!


We painted our door "Iron Ore" by Sherwin Williams. It a pretty true black with just a touch of charcoal. I like the way the matte black handle is just a shade darker too!


The exterior gray paint is "Cityscape" by Sherwin Williams and as I've said before, I really feel like it's a "true" gray. Not too blue, not too purple, not too brown, not too green...it's juuuuuust right! See it here in full sun... 


And at dusk! See, still looks great!


Now this is a fun, chameleon color...depending on the light, this gray {"Evergreen Fog" by Sherwin Williams} can look very green or blue, which we LOVE actually. We went with a matte paint, which is kind of risky for a kitchen šŸ˜¬ but we love how it absorbs the light!


We came down to these three options. Our good friend {hi Tiara!} went with "Rare Gray" on the far right and so we knew we loved that color. "Retreat" was gorgeous too but perhaps a bit too dark/bold. So "Evergreen Fog" seemed to be the perfect medium, and still a bit of a risk for us! I'm so glad we went with it, we truly LOVE it!

More examples of how it changes with the light...




Also, the upper cabinets are "Pure White" by Sherwin Williams.


The rest of our house...including walls, trim and ceilings...are all painted "Chantilly Lace" by Benjamin Moore. I researched a lot on this color...like I said, there are a billion white choices! But I love how it turned out. And while I was worried about how it would go with the upper cabinets, they seem to compliment each other well.


Last, I picked different wall colors for the boys rooms. Wyatt's room is "Greyhound" by Benjamin Moore. The lighting wasn't great for these photos but this gray in real life has a tint of blue to it which is really pretty, but still masculine. We went with "Light French Gray" by Sherwin Williams in Wyatt's nursery {which is a great light gray if you're in the market} so I liked having something a little different in this house.


Again, sorry about the terrible lighting, but this was a really fun color for Ethan's room. It's called "Narragansett Green" by Benjamin Moore and is super rich and dramatic in person! We went with a dark gray {"Serious Gray by Sherwin Williams} in Ethan's room in our last house and loved having the darker color in there. This room is substantially bigger so we knew it could handle a darker color.

So there you have it! Hopefully this was helpful and if you have any questions, leave them in the comment section!
