Home is where we come to relax, our place of security, peace, and family. We wanted out home to be serene and lovely, so when we chose colors to paint the rooms we’d be living in, we purposely chose colors that evoke a sense of calm and at the same time were fresh and pretty.
We bought a house with all white walls, and repainted with carefully chosen colors from Behr. All of the paints in this post are Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Paint, including the trim, moldings, and doors (those are Premium Plus Ultra Interior Satin Enamel in Ultra Pure White).
For our living room and dining room we chose a soft, bluish-green interior paint color by Behr called Nurture that gives a sense of freshness and airy light, while still being trendy (light blues and greens in the living room and dining room seem to have become very popular lately). It looks especially fabulous when a lot of light is shining into our house (we have great light, lots of large windows!)
The boys bedrooms are a soft, light blue color. This Behr home paint color is called Cumberland Fog, which is a dreamy color that makes me think of endless clear skies. I hope it will inspire creativity in my smart boys, and let their minds roam to discover great things (hey, genius has to start somewhere).
Our master bedroom is a gentle blue color with a hint of purple, called Blue Reflection. The blue is very relaxing after a stressful day, great for helping us feel cozy and get a good night’s sleep, but the purple undertone makes it a little more fun and exciting, very Feng Shui for a couple:
The entryway and hallways are a soft neutral color, Baked Biscotti. I loved this interior house paint color so much I used it in my home office too. It is a sort of khaki color that, according to studies on color psychology, adds a sense of steadiness and strength, the perfect color to see when getting ready to go out into the world:
The family room is a warmer neutral color called Parisian Taupe. This Behr home paint color has yellowish undertone that gives it a bit more warmth, perfect for relaxing together as a family:
