I have gotten emails here and there asking about the paint colors I have used in my house. But recently I have received a lot. So I thought it would be easier to address it in a post.
Remember the trouble I had with getting the right wall color for my office? After mixing my own color several times over I got the perfect shade. I asked you guys what I should call my new color and I loved all your responses. My mom read them too. One of the suggestions was to call it 57 Chevy Bel Air. After reading that my mom called me and told me that my dad drove that type of car (and color) a long time ago. So, that is it! That is what my office color will be called :)
I am afraid I do not know a ton about the codes they use to mix paint. I am assuming they are the same no matter what store you go to and brand you buy, but I am not sure. All these codes come from Behr paint mixed at Home Depot.
The wall color for my office was mixed in an ultra white base, the middle color was mixed in a medium base and the darkest paint was mixed in a deep base.
Both green paints used in my kitchen and dining are were mixed in a medium base.
My bedroom color was a custom tint that came from the bedding. It was mixed in an ultra white base.
I will add my hallway and bathroom later……….
