A few weeks ago, I met with Sherri at her new home to discuss painting over the colors.
During the color consult (or as Sherri would write, colour consult), we talked about the flow of the space, went over some inspiration photos, and discussed Sherri's overall style.
Sherri felt that her space was very disjointed and she wanted to pull it together to make it feel seamless. Like the rooms were really supposed to flow into each other. But most importantly she wanted to make it feel like she was living in her home.
So what did we do? I loved working with Sherri, she was actually a very easy client. She didn't know where to start, but with some guidance, she discovered what style and colors really spoke to her. After discussing her inspiration images from her homework assignment, we got started with her space.
The colors were bold, and varied wildly throughout her home. Here is a look at the "problem areas" inside:
|Kitchen in red.|
|Dining room in shades of sea-foam green.|
|Bathroom in buttery yellow.|
|Main Bedroom in white-washed blue undertones|
She spent the last week painting swatches on 12"x12" foam core boards, and viewing them throughout the space. Here is the suggested scheme (all Benjamin Moore Paints):
The Dining Room wainscoting will be painted the top of the second strip, Polar Frost #1506, with the rest of the room accented in the fifth down on the third strip: Baffin Island #243.
The Bathroom will be the third down on the forth strip, Grecian Green #507.
The primary bedroom color will be third down on the fifth strip, Pleasant Valley #696, with an accent wall in the 4th down on the last strip: del Mar Blue #704.
All of the painted trim in Sherri's home will be refreshed with Super White white.
I think the colors will flow nicely into one another and will give Sherri's space the makeover that will really feel like home.
Here is a close up of the swatches Sherri has painted and taped up on the walls:
|Kitchen: Harbour Town #493|
|Dining Room: Baffin Island (#243) & Polar Frost (#1506)|
|Bathroom: Grecian Green (#507)|
|Bedroom: del Mar Blue (#704) & Pleasant Valley (#696)|
