the colors of 210

by jennbona in , , ,

After (mostly) all the wallpaper was finally removed.. and there was a lot of it... we started painting.  We are STILL painting - mainly trim.   Most of the wallpaper came off pretty easy - only one room was really bad and took longer to remove in that room then in the rest of the house.  Just so I can feel good about the fact that it is all gone, here are progress photos.
Then came my favorite part - picking out paint colors!   That being said - it took me a lot of time putting up samples on the walls and checking everything out in all kinds of light conditions before making final selections.  I am pretty happy with the results.  We used Benjamin Moore Aura Paint throughout and I have to say I was very impressed with the paint.  It has very low odor and the coverage is great... we went with the following colors throughout the house:

White Wisp 2137-70 on all the ceilings

Skylight Blue (a Farrow and Ball color) in the bathroom

Silver Sage (Finnaran and Haley not the Ben Moore one)

Horizon 1478 - Benjamin Moore

French Press AF-170 Benjamin Moore

Edgecomb Gray HC-173 Benjamin Moore
