In my 10 years of being an Interior Designer, the main commonality that occurs is the need and/or desire to have a “quick fix” to a room or house, which can easily be fulfilled by a simple change of paint color. Changing the color on walls can determine what type of tone/mood you want to set for the room and for most people a fresh coat of paint can cause instant gratification. The best part is that a new fresh color can pack a big punch visually, but not financially!
I started to visualize what colors I wanted throughout the house and took my time to do research (it is my passion and profession after all!) and it is important you have fun with this and not let it stress you out too much about picking the “perfect” color as it can easily be changed.
I decided to remodel the top floor first, so it would be ready for out-of-town visitors, so below are the before and after pictures as well as paint colors listed out. When it comes to the best quality, I find Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams to be quite comparable so I color matched them the best I could for your convenience.
Let me know what you think and stay tuned for new wood flooring pics...!
