Hello bloggers, hope you are enjoying your last few weeks of summer. I have already begun to turn my attention to my new place. I need your help though. I know some of you may think to yourselves really girl, you want to paint your place beige, cream or off white when you can choose anything?? Are you crazy? Well, yep that's what I'm looking for. Honestly, it's the perfect backdrop to my primitive goodies. Not too mention I have red, blue checked furniture, lots of woods and color all over my house. My colors are primarily dark barn red, dark navy and black, mustard. I'm trying to let my things stand out rather than the walls. I have orange, browns, yellows and whites in the Fall. Christmas brings out the red/green classic colors. With all the constant changing I need a color that will go with everything. So with that said I read a magazine which I can't find for the life of me that had the perfect neutral color. The owner described it as candlelight for your walls. I have turned my magazine stash upside down looking for it. If you have painted you probably know that Ralph Lauren, Eddie Bauer and Shermin Williams are somewhat pricey. I am on a budget so I'm trying to go with (Behr, Valspar, Olympic) Lowes and Home Depot brands. I would love to hear from someone about what they've used on their walls. I had know idea they had that many off white, tan, beige colors to choose from. I'm leaning more toward lighter than darker. I would eventually like to stencil a few of the rooms too. Any suggestions would really be appreciated. I'm painting the kitchen, dining room, kids game room, and kids rooms for sure. Probably the guest room and bathrooms eventually. We figure it's best to do this when there's nothing in the house.
Have a good weekend,
