Best of Blog: Paint Guides

We have been doing a little website refreshing this past week. Same look, but a little cleaner and easier to navigate. We love sharing insider tips and resources to help you get a designer look and want to make sure that you can easily find what you are looking for.

In the “Categories” section of the navigation bar at the top of our site, you’ll find all our guides and most helpful posts. One of the most popular, is our Paint Guides.  A fresh coat of paint can create a total transformation but choosing a color can be overwhelming. We keep up with color trends and try out lots of different brands and hues to find our favorites. See some of our most popular Paint Guides below, but check out the navigation bar to see them all.

New Neutrals: Griege + Paint Guide

Becki Owens



Griege is a beautiful alternative neutral  that is warmer than gray, but more sophisticated feeling than beige. I am especially liking it on painted cabinetry. Although it is not a new color, it is a neutral that feels fresh when paired with cool marble, warm natural woods, and brass accents. See more griege inspiration here.

Annual Paint Guides

We love new color trends and finding our favorites to recommend. Last year, design took a dramatic turn toward color and we put out a blue paint guide, green paint guide, and blush paint guide to help you find a color to embrace. This year we are still considering favorite new looks (we have our eye on sage green) but are still loving some favorites from 2017.
