Happy Wednesday! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’m partnering with Benjamin Moore to help give a paint makeover to a 1910 home that my cousins just moved into. The main area that we focused on giving a paint makeover was the entryway. This beautiful, classic home needed a modern touch. My cousins are both cool, trendy and modern by nature but because they do love a few traditional elements, we chose to mix modern with those classic touches. Below is the before————-
The green isn’t terrible by any means! In fact, a lot of you inquired about this color. (It resembles Desert Green 443 from Benjamin Moore.) But because of this cool couple and their design needs, we chose to go with more of a contrast.
In the end I chose Midnight Oil, 1631 in Eggshell and Decorators White, CC-20 in Eggshell. Both are Benjamin Moore’s Aura Interior. Aura is the ultimate in performance and color vitality. Midnight Oil is the darkest shade of blue-black and offers instant drama. We wanted the stairs to become a fun focal point so we chose to paint the stair molding in the Midnight Oil and walls surrounding in Decorators White. I can’t get over how beautiful the contrast is! It brings a modern touch to a classic, traditional space.
Let me just brag on Benjamin Moore paint for a second. When my cousins started painting their home, they used another brand in a few bedrooms and had to do several coats. After using BM, they quickly noticed a big difference and recognized that Benjamin Moore is super high quality. After only 1 coat, they were already pleasantly impressed. So friends, I really, honestly recommend Benjamin Moore!
