Went to the Benjamin Moore paint store today, because I hadn’t felt quite confused enough this week.
I have enough painting projects to keep me busy for a lifetime in this house, and I went in to stare at the paint chips for a while. Benjamin Moore also has paint samples, little 2 oz. jars you can bring home to test drive.
I took home 6 shades of green, 2 of yellow, and 3 of red. Didn’t pick up any periwinkle, which in retrospect was probably a mistake.
I now have paint splashed up on the walls in Em’s room, my room, and the front stairs. No decisions made yet but the Raisin Torte just about matcbes the deep red we found underneath layers of paint on the front stairs, I’m leaning toward Yellow Lotus in my bedroom and Em likes either Palisades Park green or Pale Sea Mist in her room.
And my latest fancy is to paint the closets and inner cabinets some bright shocking colors as contrast. Pear Green, or a bright coral or fuschia.
Recommendations always welcome.
