I think it’s about time I share a blog post with answers to some of the questions I am commonly asked about my home. If there is something I’m not answering here feel free to leave a comment below and I will do my best to update this post and include it. Thanks for stopping by!
Cabinet color: Sherwin Williams Dover White. This is the perfect creamy white that isn’t too warm and isn’t too cool, we have this on our cabinets and our trim. We also used this on all the paneling updates we have done!
Wall paint color: Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray. This was a recommendation from an Interior Designer I know. It is such a great color – doesn’t pull blue or lavender, and has really nice dimension. In a corner where there are shadows it looks darker gray, but with the sun hitting it it can almost look white!
External house color: Sherwin Williams Cyberspace. We knew we wanted a navy house, but there is a fine line between blue and navy. We loved that Cyberspace is a deep navy that almost looks grey on the swatch. This deep color with white trim and bright green grass and a subtle accent of walnut really pops and makes a timeless statement (in my opinion 🙂 ).
I wrote a whole blog post on my two 10×12 rugs I have (under $200). I am asked often if they are thin and the answer is yes. Be sure to buy a carpet-grade pad to go under the rug if you are putting it in a common-space where you will be sitting or walking on it. You will be so pleased with this if you do it (and so will your bank account)! If you are putting it under a dining table, I don’t think you need a carpet pad (we don’t have one in our dining room and never think twice about it). I saved a video showing the carpet pad we have in detail on my “home” highlight on my Instagram.
Our counter-tops are quartz and the color is Ajanta. They are a grey color with little speckling and I love how well they hide things (because #littlekids, ha). I love the look of white and marble, I just wanted something with a little more contrast since I went with all white cabinets.
LIGHT FIXTURE QUESTIONS:
One thing I am really grateful for is our decision to do “builder grade” light fixtures in our whole house (because they are “included” in the base cost of our home) and then purchasing light fixtures on my own that best reflect our style! All of these are under $300.
