Paint Colors

I often get asked about the paint colors in my house, especially in the nursery and the living/dining room, so I thought I would share a few.
In the nursery I used Martha Stewart  "Flagstone" from Home Depot.


I recently had someone ask about my bedroom. I used Glidden "China Rain," but it was a couple years ago when I painted so I'm not sure if they still have that color available.


The living room was a color I found while I was still in school in a really old Benjamin Moore swatch book that was in our sample library. I think the date on it was from sometime in the 80's. Anyway, the paint swatch only had a number on the back so I never new the name. I had Columbia match it. Well, just a couple weeks ago I stumbled upon the swatch and guess what! I just googled the number, and Benjamin Moore still carries the paint color!! It's called Antique Pewter.


There you have it! And thanks for the questions. I love that people are stumbling upon my blog.
