Picking My Valspar Paint Color
This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Valspar Paint.
This has not been an easy decision. At all.
You all are so creative with your accent colors and mixing palettes. I am confused enough just trying to pick ONE Valspar Paint color. Though I will admit that now I have great ideas for all the adjoining areas.
The second most popular sugggestion was Cream in My Coffee. While I like that color by itself, when I put the swatch next to my tile floor and carpeting it was all too much of the same. It seemed really bland.
The same was true with the Lyndhurst Shady Grove. In the light of my house it looked like a really boring gray. As in go paint a battleship with the brush while you have the paint out. I think in a smaller room it would be a perfectly lovely color, but not an enormous expanse.
I really do like this paint color, alot. I love greens. But I think it would too much for such a large area. Sort of cave like.
This is the color I decided to go with:
The color looks decidedly more yellow in person than on my monitor. A sort of lemony butter? Buttery lemon?
The Gothic Tan on the swatch matches the color of the grout on my floor tile. And the tile is brown, so they all seemed to tie together nicely on the little swatch.
I am beyond excited to have this project done. I already feel more emotionally invested in this house, by painting it I am making it into the home I want it to be. Next up I can actually hang things up on the walls! Where I want! Not just where there are already nails. I know! There is no holding me back now.
I hope I survive.
So, tell me what you think so far. I must admit that I feel sort of boring going with one color now that so many of you had such great ideas for accent walls and using paint to define different areas. But I figure this is a start, right?
Tune in next week when I reveal the new paint job in its entirety. Unless, of course I die first.
Again, I will be picking one person who leaves a comment to win a $100 Lowe’s gift card. You could buy lots of paint with that money! I really hope that someone decides to paint and blog about it, because this is the most fun I have had picking a paint color. Check out some ideas of what you could do with the gift card here.
