I’ll start by saying that thank you will not come close to doing justice what I felt yesterday by your warm, uplifting, and cheerful comments. I was blown away by your support and encouragement–thank you, friends, for being mine…and for letting me be yours!
Whenever we’ve gotten our room redo on, the most frequently asked questions always involve paint. I also received a lot of questions yesterday, so…
I decided it was time to have all of our paint colors in one place.
The playroom– Valspar’s Sea Breath
On a side note, I get tons of questions on our flooring upstairs. We found this laminate whitewashed flooring at a lumber liquidation center on clearance and being discontinued. If I ever run across it again, you guys will be the first to know!
Writing Room– Benjamin Moore’s White Diamond (my go-to fav)
The writing room bath is painted another Benjamin Moore color, and that one I’ll have to look into. I’ve literally forgotten, but no worries. I’m sure there is a paint can with a name on it. Somewhere.
All of our trim and cabinetry was painted a bright white when we built our home 8 years ago.
Kitchen– (and all other main living areas) Benjamin Moore White Diamond
The barstools were given a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence.
The painted laundry room door– Olympic Alpine Valley
Guest Room– Olympic Misty Surf
Living Room– Benjamin Moore White Diamond
Coffee Table– Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old Ochre
Dining Room– Can you guess? Benjamin Moore White Diamond
The recess bits in the coffered ceiling are Benjamin Moore Crushed Ice.
I don’t actually know the color of this dresser, BUT, the closest I’ve found to it is Provence chalk paint…and if you want a little more green, mix in some Duck Egg Blue chalk paint.
I hope that answers all of the paint questions of the casa de West. Let me know if you have any more!
Before we change them all.
I happened across the Nate show for the first time ever yesterday (yes, I live under a rock) and was like, “Oooo… oooo… I know that fabulous space!!!” Hahaha 😀 Congrats, congrats – that is so exciting!
It was so fun to see you on the Nate Show! I know you were probably nervous but I thought you look very natural and at ease!
Shaunna, I recorded Nate’s show yesterday so I could watch you last night. You were just awesome! I was so excited for you!! Great Job!
And I love all of these colors….especially the laundry room door in Alpine Valley. SO pretty!
Watched the show last night. You did great! Your home is beautiful – looks like fresh air.
We have a few identical design choices in common that I will have to share with you one day. Kind of funny 😉
Watched you on the Nate Show yesterday! You did a wonderful job. Your house looks even more amazing on video. What a great style you have. Thank you for sharing your paint colors. I have a lot of brown on my walls. You are inspiring me to wipe the slate clean with some white.
I’ve PVR’d the show to enjoy on the weekend. This is just the start of even more exciting things.
i love your home, it’s gorgeous. and the ceilings in the dining room are to die for. great color choices. what are some of your fave ASCP colors? the old ochre looks great on your coffee table, would it pair well with duck egg?
Great job all the way around. Wish Nate would spend a little more time showing the house. Your interview was wonderful. You can channel that feeling for a long time to come!
It was great to see you on The Nate Show yesterday. I made sure my husband recorded it for me. I told him “My friend is going to be on the show”. He asked how I knew you. “From her blog”. Your blog is famous. It has been fun to see 2 Alabama girls on the show this month (with Ashley of The Handmade Home). You guys rock!!!
I brought Grace and Patience in to watch it with me yesterday. We were all excited and saying, “We’ve been there!” When your segment was over we started clapping, which made the rest of the family come rushing in so we watched it again. Hooray! Lisa~
I watched you on the Nate Show and was feeling all proud inside for you! You did wonderful!!
Love all your paint choices!
Ok, So…my question is…why chalk paint? Is it a texture thing or what? Just curious. Am I missing out on something cool?
Love them all! Might have to come back to this 🙂
Yes Nature girl…you are missing out on something very cool…Annie Sloan’s chalk paint rocks!
Shaunna…your home is so lovely and calming. I have one question…
Is the guest room available????
Oooh….ok. I guess I need to check this out!
I was thinking your writing room bath was painted Benjamin Moore Iceberg. But then, it’s possible I was high from the fumes of my paint samples.
YES IT IS!!! Thank you, Dorothy! You got it. Saved me on that one.
You house is fantastic, and as I discovered you 3 rooms into my little brown ranch, I have been vetoed on going back to change, but the most recent room and the one big yet to come room isngoing to be my attempt at bringing a little imperfect perfectness to my house! But it is very awesome to seeing you give all your thanks back to the Creator. God bless you!
You are SUCH a talented decorator. I’m always so impressed. Your colors are amazing! Thanks so much for always supplying lots of inspiration!
I’m so sorry I missed you on The Nate Show. I read your blog the afternoon after it aired. ;-(
So enjoy your creations.
I wonder if you or any of your readers can tell me how to get that “driftwood gray” color on a piece of furniture? I have someone who’ll build a farm table, but I need to tell him how to achieve the color I want. It’s very similar to the Restoration Hardware table colors….kinda “greige”. I would think it would be a process of painting and sanding, etc. or antiquing in order to give it some depth. I think he’ll be using cypress wood. Any ideas would be so appreciated!!
I discovered your blog through the Nate Berkus show and immediately fell in love with your home! You mentioned painting furniture with milk paint and finishing it with furniture wax. What type of milk paint and wax do you use?
I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs reallly nice, keep it up!
I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later on.
Love the playroom storage furniture (shelves/drawers). Would greatly appreciate knowing where to buy it! Thanks . . .
Thanks! We love them too! Matt built them for us based loosely on the ones that pottery barn sells. If you are interested in building them, I’m sure he would be happy to give you some measurements and tips if you would like. 🙂
