Paint Color House Tour

I am SUCH a bad blogger for not having a real house tour up on this site, but I always feel like nothing is ever finished enough, clean enough, organized enough… enough enough.

I promise I will have one by the end of the year. That gives me 4 months… in addition to the 2 years I’ve had since this blog got started…

In the mean time, please, join me in walking through the (incredibly not close to scale) house …divided by the colors we’ve got going on:

We’ve got a split level ranch home with a partially finished basement. The sunroom, kitchen, and living room make up the bottom level; the full bath, office, master bedroom, and guest room make up the second level; the den and half bath make up the basement (and there’s a small unfinished storage and laundry area down there too).

SOON the full bath color will be changing, since we’re redoing the space. Eventually, the guest room color will be changing because I’ve got lots and lots of ideas for that space.

  • Sunroom: Behr White Truffle, Better Homes & Garden Partridge Gray
  • Kitchen: Behr Manilla Tint
  • Living Room: Behr Wheat Bread
  • Entrance & Steps: Behr White Truffle
  • Full Bath: Behr Sand Dollar White
  • Office: Behr Smokey Blue
  • Master Bedroom: Behr Sand Dollar White
  • Guest Room: Behr Cantelope
  • Den: Clark + Kensington City Nights
  • Bathroom: Behr Waterscape

Some of these look so much different in person. Wheat Bread is a solid, steadfast gray. Manilla Tint is super yellow. Cantelope is screaming orange (and one day, will turn to White Truffle!!).

Do you have any colors that look completely different in your home then they did in the sample? Has anyone besides me every painted the same room 2 different colors in less then 24 hours beause of this? haha

  2. I love that you almost have a complementary colour palette throughout the house! I feel like, as we decorate, we keep picking the same colours – but I just like them haha! x

  3. You should make your house a palette on I’m obsessed with that site – I use it for web design inspiration. Actually, your house colors would make a sophisticated website color scheme and that would be kind of neat! 🙂
