Fixer Upper- Week Four

This week some fun things began to happen.  As the designer of this place, I had to make my paint color choices!

I’ve been through my mount of paint swatches 100 times and spent some time on Pinterest looking at different rooms and paint colors.  (If you’d like to follow my Pinterest sounding board, it’s called Fixer Upper under me- Style from the Sticks.)  I wanted to do the whole and house in shades of grey. Cue 50 Shades snarky comment.

Here are the colors I picked.  Sometimes they are hard to read on a computer screen. BTW, I’m in love with Benjamin Moore paint colors.  I don’t know why but I love them SO much more than Sherwin Williams or anywhere else.  They’re so much more livable. Just my opinion.



Classic Gray- This is a Ben Moore paint that I liked because it is a true grey without too many undertones and it is very light.  This is the paint I chose for the entry, living room, kitchen and hallway.  I wanted to make the space there feel more open, larger and like one big room.  And this neutral will go with many different colors.

Silver Strand- This is one of Joanna Gaines’ favorite colors so I had to try it out somewhere. I chose to make this the bathroom color because it has a bunch of green in it and I didn’t want anything else to have that much color.  It’s from Sherwin Williams.

Decorator’s White- This BM paint will be my trim color.  It’s a very bright white but has a cool undertone that I’m hoping will pop the white accents.

Gray Owl- Another BM.  This grey has a slightly green/blue undertone.  It is the master bedroom color.

Revere Pewter- From BM.  You’ll see this color show up again and again on Pinterest.  It’s a muddy grey which makes it very desirable.  If any of you locals want to see it in person, it’s the grey color on the city library walls.  I picked this for the second bedroom to make the northeast room more cozy and warm.

So that’s the palette!  I hope to get some finished pictures up soon!
