Welcome to Day 4 of the bloggers’ favourite paint colour series. If you missed anything, there’s a recap of the other participants at the bottom of the post. I’m already inspired to paint a room in our home! What about you?
Today let’s say “hello” to Amanda from Sincerely, Marie Designs. I love Amanda’s fresh take on traditional style. I’m certain any one of us would feel very comfortable spending time in her home. It’s cozy, warm and inviting with so many charming details scattered throughout. I think you’ll agree!
Amanda’s Favourite Paint Colours
Hi everyone! I’m Amanda Marie from Sincerely, Marie Designs. I’m so happy Shauna invited me to share a few of my favorite home paint colors with you! My husband and I have been renovating a colonial home for the last five years. We love warm, cozy colors that work well with the historical feel of our home. You’ll find soft neutrals and pops of color on my favorite colors’ list!
Neutral Paint Colors
Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore has been a popular color for some time, but it’s a new favorite of mine. It’s is a warm, creamy white. I recently chose it for our kitchen walls, trim, cabinetry and planked ceilings. It works beautifully in spaces that get low sun light and have lots of warm woods to play off of. Swiss Coffee can take on a pink undertone in certain lighting. I found this to be true in my dining room, where there is much more natural lighting. It’s name fits it perfectly, because in the right space, it’s the coziest white!
Simply White by Benjamin Moore is one of my all-time favorite paint colors. It can be used for walls, trim, ceilings and cabinetry. It’s a beautiful white with a nice warm undertone. We chose this bright and welcoming color for our foyer, family room, my office and master bathroom. We used it on the trim in these spaces as well for a tone on tone look. This color is a warm white and can take on a pink undertone in certain spaces. Always test a sample in your space first.
Our foyer is flooded with sunlight, so Simply White is bright and crisp.
In our family room and master bathroom, it takes on a warmer tone due to less natural light.
I love Navajo White by Benjamin Moore. If you’re looking for an off-white that isn’t too sterile, this is a wonderful color. I chose it for our two fireplace mantels in our living room and dining room. It’s a warm color that pairs with Simply White beautifully. I’m currently considering it for my entire dining room, because it’s such an sophisticated color. It has a historic look to it and really gives a warm feel to a room. Beware, it can take on a peachy tone in certain spaces, so I wouldn’t say this color is for everyone.
Green Paint Color Picks
Svelte Sage by Sherwin Williams is one of my favorite shades of green! I chose it for the trim and built-in desk and window seat for my newly renovated office. It’s a soft classic for trim and cabinetry. It fits our colonial home’s style perfectly. It’s a very friendly, inviting color and pairs with my Simply White walls very well. My office gets great natural lighting, so the color takes on a soft green with a slight beige undertone. However, I have seen this color look very beige in other spaces.
I’m a big fan of green. I’ve used different shades of it throughout my home. One of the newest greens I’ve used is Calke Green by Farrow & Ball. Last year I chose it for our guest bedroom. It has quickly become a favorite of mine! It’s a traditional, rich green that has given our guest bedroom so much warmth. I love the English feel to this color.
Adding a Deep Paint Color for Contrast
Years ago I chose Benjamin Moore Graphite for our interior doors and staircase bannister & treads. I wanted a dark, dusty color that wasn’t too harsh. This color fits those requirements perfectly. It works well in our neutral wall colors and doesn’t show up grim like a lighter color would on our doors. It can take on a navy color in certain lighting, so just keep that in mind with this color.
