It is nearing time to install kitchen cabinets in the Coral Cottage kitchen. Up until this time I have been planning to paint all of the walls white so the small rooms would feel larger. But at the last minute I have had second thoughts.
We have ordered white kitchen cabinets and much of the decor features white furniture. So I decided we would need a little color on the walls--nothing super dark--just a little soft color. Jane Coslick, my design consultant, is particularly gifted in choosing paint colors so we met at the house and chose a beautiful watery blue that is in the same family as some of the other elements already selected to use in the house.
We chose a Sherwin Williams color called Buoyant Blue. Its number is SW 6483 and you can view it on the Sherwin Williams website here. Here is a color swatch for your viewing pleasure:
It is just a wisp of color but I think it will add something as a backdrop for the white--especially the coral chandelier that gave the house its name--you can read about it here.
Choosing paint is always the thing that freaks me out--it can look so different on the walls than in the tiny swatch. I felt much braver and confident with Jane's help. What about you? How do you feel about selecting paint colors? Please leave your comments and helpful tips...
