#newpaint!

aqua paint in the hall
Aqua is always a good choice.

 

Doesn’t everyone decide to paint the entry hall just before Christmas? Well, I did!

Out with the neutral tan—in with the Palladian Blue from Benjamin Moore. I love this shade of blue … it just makes me smile every time  walk down the hall. We originally painted the walls a neutral tan to make to make the ugly tile look better—but that is all changing because we are painting the floors!

We did an experiment with the tile floor downstairs and had amazing results. We used the Benjamin Moore new product called ‘Stix’ that forms a bond with the tile so then the paint can adhere.

I see more painting in my future—change is a Good Thing!

  1. Gorgeous Lissy! I have a client who is in love with paint color. I planked her kitchen ceiling and we painted it this color in high gloss. Makes her 8’ceilings look amazing.
    Cannot wait to see what you are going to do with those tile floors. You tease!
