Which paint color do you like best?

Dear Chicago House,

Remember how everyone of your walls was brown, beige, taupe, fawn yuk, yuk yukity yuk? Well “brown makes me frown” and it is fast becoming  distant memory. You have a new color palette and as I have had quite a few requests as to the colors I have used, here we go. This is the easy going, relaxing color palette of your ground floor.

In the dining room I have used Behr Maiden Voyage and Benjamin Moore mayonnaise

In the Family Room I slapped on a couple of coats of Behr Relaxing Green

Then in the living room I selected a shade darker than the relaxing green and used Behr Herbal Mist

The sun room (which in fact was the only room that wasn’t brown) got freshened up with the lovely Mayonnaise by Benjamin Moore

And my latest paint project is my office which has come to life with Behr Aqua Breeze

The only room not pictured is the kitchen, which, while beautifully done with cherry cabinets ,is so NOT my cup of tea. I’d love to paint them but am terrified I’d ruin them forever!

Which one do you like best?

  1. Love your color choices, they're so similar to mine (:

    Hey, you left a comment on my blog the other day and I tried to write you back but you're a no-reply blogger which means people can't directly email you back when you leave a comment.

    If you want to change it, there are lots of tut's online, just an fyi (:


  2. I am about to do my great room in BM's Mayonnaise or Vanilla Ice Cream and love how bright and warm your sun room came out. I also love the Herbal Mist room, how crisp and cozy that red leather couch looks with those pillows. You did a very nice job.
