Paint Colors!

Paint colors can be one of the easiest ways to change the look and feel of a room, but one of the hardest to choose! I'm linking up to the Nesters Paint Party , so be sure to check out all the great paint combinations there!
This is an amazing Color by Ben.Moore Called "Rapture"~ A beautiful deep, rich red. I used it only on a feature wall, so it wasnt' too overpowering. I used The Aura paint in this red, dried super fast.

All my trim work, mouldings, and built ins are in Ben.Moore Cloud White. My favourite white and I have used it over and over for years now! It is a warm, true white, no crazy undertones!

My living room, well I'm not a huge fan of this color looking to change it....hint, hint.....But if you like it, it's called Naturally Calm by Glidden. (ulti-matte) I also, need some art, area rug etc.....feel free to give ideas!!! (wondering if I should paint that staircase post white)

My cabinets are Cloud White ( color-matched) in a lacquer for durability. We had them custom made and sprayed .
The wall above the sink and it's wrapped around the rest of the kitchen is Benj. Moore "Gentle Cream"~ eggshell. Its a nice neutral backdrop.
Hope you go visit Nesting Place and see all the paint inspiration colors. Let me know what you think of my colors. What is your favourite paint colors in your home?


  1. Theres nothing like paint to change & freshen up a room and give it a new look!
    I love white...I used an antique white at the advice of a trusted friend, and I love it...for in my living room and then used the same colour with a bit of a gloss for some furniture I painted.
    Your home looks great Cindy!
    Is that the Ikea couch in there? :)
    Have a fun week!

  2. What a gorgeous kitchen! Would love to see more photos of it!

  3. Hi Cindy ~ I always love seeing photos of your beautiful home! I have to tell you ... the colours are right up my alley and my home has all similiar tones (with the exception of the red). Although I do love colour, I cannot live with too much of it on the walls. I need my space to be peaceful and serene and I love to introduce colour through accessories. Cloud White is my fav. BM colour, by far!

  4. Beautiful colors! The red is gorgeous and the white is so pretty! I am going to paint my living room white and I have seen many here in blogland mention the Cloud White. I think I will have to look into that!


Thanks for stopping by, your comments make me smile!
