Life on Cedar Lane Paint Guide

Happy Sunday everyone! Paint is by far my most asked about question regarding my home, so I decided it was finally time to update this post with some more recent photos. I hope you all find this helpful!

I totally agonized over selecting paint colors when building our home, I mean it’s hard enough picking for one room let alone a whole house! As we all know, paint can look different in two different spaces largely due to the amount of light that room may get. It will also look different with natural light compared to artificial light. And when working with the ever popular grey color scheme, paint can skew so many different ways…purple, blue, green…bring on the stress right?

I am so happy that almost all the colors I chose turned out to be perfect for us. The only room that was repainted was my son’s bedroom, which doesn’t get a ton of natural light and the shade of gray I picked was way too dark and blue. But one room out of a whole house isn’t too bad, right? All color listed below are by Benjamin Moore.  Hope you find this useful!!
