my favorite paint color PARTY!




This post may contain my affiliate link. For more information, please see my disclosure policy: Thanks! :)


Are you ready for a paint part-ay? Here we go!
Here are some paint colors in my home:
In my kitchen, we have Benjamin Moore Wilmington Tan
a tan with gold undertones~very rich, love it with red accents, but I would suggest a room with lots of light on this one.




In the family room, we have Nester's Tobacco Road (almost~it's a bit different base, but really close)

In our main bath, we have Lowe's (Valspar) Smoke Infusion. Blue is very hard to get right. I love this color, but would go even lighter next time:

In the master bath, we have Benjamin Moore Lenox Tan. Love it in the main part, but in the area behind the door, it can develop green undertones. With all of these paint colors, get a tester first, and try it out before you buy gallons.

And this weekend, I re-painted my entryway with Benjamin Moore Baby Turtle. They had to cut through the walls when we were getting some new pipe installed, so I had to re-paint.
AND I painted the inside of my door black! I loved Shannon's, and figured if the outside could be black, why not the inside?? :)
Now, it's YOUR turn. I need some ideas for paint colors for my laundry room and girls' room, so I'm looking for inspiration from all of you~

Here is the button you can add to your post:

Please remember to link to the post about your paint color(s), not your general blog address. (I'll have to delete if you link to your blog.) Remember to link back here! Now go get some paint inspiration!

  2. I love the back of the door black! All your colors are great! The blue smoky color is gorgeous! It reminds me of our Master Bath, which is Restoration Hardware Silver Sage. Thanks for being a great hostess! I have loved the posts all week!

  3. The day is finally here!! I can't wait to see what everyone shows. I love the colors of your house. I must say, I am sad to see you had to paint over your entry with all the time you spent doing it the first time around and I LOVED that. The green is a fun change though. I am still lovin' the smoke infusion at my place! I got your greens at Tai Pan--last one--plus a few extras finds of my own. They had more mark downs--thanks for the excuse to go again--Michael will thank you in his own way I am sure!:)

  4. Hey Melissa! I just wanted to tell you that Rhoda from Southern Hospitality has a Grass Cloth laundry room and office nook: http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/2008/07/happy-green-laundry-room.html

    I found her blog a few months after we painted our basement and saw my new favorite green in her beautiful laundry room! I think that her kitchen and my family room are the same color (LA Olive 4) as well! As for natural light, the only light our basement gets is through that little window you see in the picture. Hope that helps! Of course we want to see pics when you decide on a color!

  5. Thanks for getting back to me, Shelly! I'll definitely check out Rhoda's laundry room~I hope she'll feature it with some of her paint colors tomorrow :)

  7. Melissa, I love, love, love your blue bathroom. My entire house is done in earthy browns, reds, golds, greens. However my Master Bedroom & Bathroom are done in an a light Aqua color. Something so soothing and relaxing about a pale blue.

  8. I will definitely be taking notes from blogs today and then head on over to store to get samples of the ones I love the most! This party is a great idea! I need to paint my bathroom so maybe this will inspire me!

  9. thanks for hosting this! LOVE LOVE LOVE paint- I daydream about paint! I carry swatches with me and my heart starts to race when I go down the paint ilse at the home improvement stores. (my heart races at the fabric stores too but thats another story ;-) )

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm here too! Hope everyone will come on over & check out my faves too. It's always fun to see real homes with real paint colors instead of just those little chips.

    Melissa, I know lots who have used Baby Turtle as well as Tobacco Road. TB has been a popular color around Atlanta for many years.

  11. Thanks for doing this. I was great to see some colors because I have some painting projects coming up. Love your clock and the pictures beside it...very classy.

  12. Hi Melissa! I really love both of those bathrooms, they are so chic! I just joined the party and posted my favorite color. But I am Paint Color ADD, so I'm sure I'll have a new favorite color tomorrow. :)

  13. I meant to have this post up last night, but then I had "blog drama" I was dealing with. Better late than never, though, I figure!

    Thanks for hosting this fabulous party, Melissa. I've already visited a few people and I'm taking notes. Love all of your paint colors, too! :-)

  14. This is so fun. I was planning on joining in and then realized that I have no names/brands to put with my paint colors. Nothing more frustrating than seeing the color that you love on someone's wall and not knowing what it is. :)
    I have many more rooms to paint so this will give me great ideas. :)

  15. I just discovered your blog recently and I love it! You have great taste!

  16. Love all the paint colors you chose. So nice and calming! Now since we are talking about paint, how do you keep it safe for the home and the kids? Like do you air the room out for several days, avoid the room, etc. or do you use non-toxic paint? I want to paint so much around the house but I have a little toddler and worried.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love, love, love, your blog, and love, love, love your paint colors!! Thanks for hosting, and for all your amazing ideas!

  18. Dang, I just posted something yesterday about the new paint job we gave our bathroom. Since it's a product review, I am not sure I can update it with a link to here, so here it is in case you wanna see what color we chose:http://fabulouslyfrugalicious.blogspot.com/2009/06/my-bathroom-makeover-featuring-refresh.html

  19. I'm thinking of a blue-gray for my guest room, but I'm finding that gray is tricky. All those undertones make choosing just the right one a challenge! I love that smoky color in your bath.

  25. Melissa - I LOVE all the paint colors. Thanks for doing this, it gave me some great ideas. I also love your new entryway color, I can't believe you had to paint over it but it turned out wonderful. Your whole house is inspiring. :) Have a good day!

  26. Thanks again for hosting this fun party. I have my color sticks out right now and I'm putting stars next to my favorites. And randomly, I also wanted to comment on how beautiful your button is. I just love it! I know that was random.

  27. Thanks for the party! I can't wait to look at everyone's paint colors. And I love your colors by the way...especially the new color in your hallway. It's spectacular.

    P.S. I just figured out you're a Utah gal. I'm originally from there. Woo hoo!

  28. Hi Melissa,
    Thanks for throwing this wonderful paint party! I just found you through Rhoda at Southern Hospitality so decided to join in the fun. I love the Benjamin Moore Lenox tan color you used in your bath. It looks rich and draws you into the room. Now that I found you I look forward to following your blog. Drop by my site anytime; it is always nice to meet new friends.

  29. So very beautiful! I have been trying to figure out how to redo my bedroom. I have some pretty old furniture that I think could be treasures if I do something with it. I love the robin egg blue and I have been trying to find that color for months, but just having a hard time with it. My gut tells me no. I don't know why!! Then I saw the smoke infusion color and I am going to check that color out! Love your blog! Have been a reader for awhile and decided to become a blogger myself. I just have to find the time to get with it!

  36. Remember me...the crazy Mom of 5 in GA. I just love your posts and dream of having the eye like you for making over yard sale treasures. I just finished my laundry make-over a few hours ago before I even realized this great paint party was going on! The color goes right along with your new blog colors! Come check it out and let me know what you think! I hope you don't mind I posted two links...one for my laundry room and another from an old post with the Home Depot Tabacco Road paint formula.

  51. Thanks for throwing the party! I hope it's better late than never. Plus, I'm on the West Coast. It took me awhile to gather my info. I also didn't really mean to post my entire name, but too late now. I love your bathroom color. If you check out mine, you'll see some similar colors at my house. Thanks again,

  52. Your colors are all gorgeous and make the rooms! Love your decor!! We are just starting the process of redoing a whiole house, so it's a little daunting to try and pick everything at once, but fun. :)

    and ps. being slightly tired, I entered only my description, not my name in Mr. Linky. Sigh.

  53. I fixed my link (56) so if you have the power to delete the wrong one (52) please do.

  54. Hope I am not too late in joining the party. Lovin' all the colors you posted. I am seriously getting a painting-itch!

  55. Sorry! You can delete #57. I forgot to link to the post! This is my first time doing this :(

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks so much for starting the party. I've found so many great paint colors through this. I just went by Benjamin Moore today and they gave me the paint fan deck FREE!! Wahoo! I couldn't have been more excited! And I was truly prepared to pay!
    Normally we buy from Lowe's but I'm considering buying from Benjamin Moore or just matching it with Valspar at Lowe's.
    I'm painting some rooms soon so it's great to see these colors and now find them in my new fan deck.

  57. Thanks for hosting the paint party, it so much fun to peek at everyone's houses. I am loving the colors so far.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Such a great idea for a party! So sorry I am late and couldn't get to a whole post about this, but I added my post where I share my new favorite GREEN!

  59. Thanks for the great colors! And where oh where did you get that clock in your family room? Adorable!

  60. I love the blue in the first bathroom. You're right...it's a hard color to work with, as I have learned a few times. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I can't wait to get moved so I can join all the fun parties. I hope you do lots of paint parties because I will need to decide on colors once I get settled and decide what I'm going to do in the new place.

  68. I've painted my bedroom with Wilmington Tan and am debating what color to paint the trim. Can I ask what you used? Right now, I've left it the original white, but the double closets doors really seem to stand out. Should I be lazy and just paint the trim with the same color as the walls? ;-) Thanks!
