Coloring our World

With the walls primed and the ceilings finished with the sprayer, it was time to select and begin painting the interior walls.  Although Rob gave the pressure roller a whirl in the gameroom, we've elected to do the rest of the house through good old fashioned paint rolling. 

The gameroom was done in a nice beachy peach on the Benjamin Moore Historic Color palette:

The downstairs dining, living, and utilility areas were all painted in a neutral gold tone entitled, "Beacon Hill Damask" - also on the Benjamin Moore Historic palette:

For the kitchen, we chose a sage "Kittery Point Green":

 The stucco on the fireplace received a lovely coat of oil based primer:

The upstairs hall and downstairs master bedroom were done in a stately blue/gray, "Covington Blue"- see Rob in action:

We also spent some time trying various wallpaper samples out for the downstairs breezeway - we haven't selected anything yet.

Two weeks in and the interior painting continues.  We are closing in on the home stretch (thanks to Rob, who had been painting non-stop, while I've been a weekend warrier), but we still have quite a bit of touch up, ceilings to cut in (my job!), and a few rooms to tackle.  Out of all of the interior color selections, we only had one mishap - the lovely yellow we selected for one of the guest bedrooms morphed into a taxi-cab yellow on the walls.  We caught the mistake before we went too far and quickly replaced the color with the lovely historic, "Hawthorne Yellow",  We'll be donating the two full gallons of yellow paint!

The house is coming alive with color.
