Benjamin Moore Paint Color
One of my all time favorite paint colors is Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore. I suggest it often to clients for cabinets, accent walls, ceilings and moody rooms. I wanted to take some time today to highlight this gorgeous paint color and it's great hue.
When I suggested Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore Paints to my client for the cabinets above, they were a bit nervous. They asked, will the room look too dark? I assured them that the room would not feel dark, but custom and updated. We chose Edgecomb Gray for the walls which provides a nice neutral backdrop.
This color is beautiful against a clean white trim or paint color for crest contrast. It is a green gray paint meaning there is a slight green undertone to it.
Front Door Makeover
So excited to be sharing my front entry transformation with you all! Our entry way has been neglected since we moved in. I also wanted to buy a new front entry door so didn't do a color on the main front door when we painted the home, but now that we have decided to stick with what we have I knew that paint would make the entry way more interesting and welcoming.
Here is a photo of the entry before. The door was Urbane Bronze from Sherwin Williams, (a great color for trim and doors by the way!) It is also the same color as my fascia and garage door trim. I had painted the entry flooring a couple of years ago with an indoor / outdoor paint that didn't last long with the wear and tear of the winter here. Plus, I chose a light color that matched our trim, but isn't great for hiding dirt and wear and tear. (Even though I do like the contrast)
When clients are looking for a light cool gray, I always review Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl with them. A favorite Benjamin Moore Color with a very light tone.
Gray Owl from Benjamin Moore is a popular paint color. That's why I have decided to highlight it today. It isn't really one of my go-to colors, but many clients ask me about it so I feel it's an important one to cover.
This is a very pretty color, but it does change based on what it is paired with and the light in the room. It is a cool gray green. Here it looks beautiful on the cabinets. Notice the marble is a gray blue but it still blends wonderfully with the space. The natural elements of the lighting and stools blend very well.

One of the easiest ways to add a pop of color to your home exterior is to paint your front door. I am about to change the color of my front door from bronze to RED - but I still haven't pulled the paint brush out yet! I am a little nervous... so to give me a boost of confidence and make sure I am painting my door the best color, I am sharing different door colors with you today and hopefully it will give you some painting ideas too!
I recently helped a client choose pavers hardscape and a fire pit rock for her exterior. We originally met at her home where I helped her choose colors for her exterior. Here is her home and the colors that she is using to update her house.
NEW COLORS: Tin Lizzie for the body and Natural Choice for the trim
With all that busy stone, she needed extra help in choosing the pavers leading up to her home and wrapping the hardscape around to make a patio in her back yard. She was overwhelmed with color choice, style and texture so she asked if I could help.
