Paint colors by request
I had dreams of grey walls, but the landlord put in brand new brownish carpet right before we moved in, so that was out for the living room. We chose "Dungeon Bronze" by Dutch Boy, B13-1, for the living room, since it was a greyish brown...
In that color, the dining room came out a lovely warm, pale grey:
Although Hidden Cove looks very different in different lights. We also used it in the hall/stairway (uuugh, I wish I had painted that handrail white...):
The bedroom was Dutch Boy's White Wedding, a very cool white.
In my house tour post you'll see other rooms, but Jason's office is the blah, blah, icky apartment ivory that was already there, and the bathroom paint I mixed myself from other colors, and never really loved. The kitchen was the stock white out of a gallon from Ace Hardware that we had. Ha!
I have learned some things, of course, from painting almost a whole house, and am already thinking about the next place! I want to go for a soft color throughout the house, probably light, light tan, and want to use recycled Metro Paint this time. Our regional government, Metro, has paint recycling facilities and sells really high quality recycled paint in a few colors that they mix themselves. You can buy it at Miller and Fred Meyer stores all over the Portland area and in other parts of Oregon. It's a great price and is eco-friendly!
