I believe that a house tells you what colors it wants to be. Perrie was all very peachy and light grey inside when we got him and it didn’t feel like his walls were living up to their potential. Also, I feel like a fresh coat of paint is the quickest and easiest way to make the house your own and get the biggest bang for your buck. An immediate mood change.
Even before we arrived here I knew that I wanted to called paint John’s office a Sherwin Williams color called “Oceanside”. The whole front room was going to be painted white (very much out of character for me) so the office needed to be bold and saturated. And because you can see from one room to another, the colors needed to all look good together and draw your eye from one room to another. So then I needed a color ( and for some reason I was feeling pink ) for the bedroom. I’d considered a fuchsia or magenta, but wanted the contrast to be more significant between the office and the bedroom so it needed to be lighter than that. I called upon a dear old friend who specializes in color to ask her for some recommendations for pinks. After some discussion about what direction I was headed in ( accent colors, fabric, and feel ) she suggested Sherwin Williams “Youthful Coral”. I added in some “Tricorn Black” and I was set. To the paint store!
