Choosing Paint Colors!!!

I am changing the paint colors in my house this week.  I can't wait!  I have had tobacco road for a whole 18 months on my walls.  It is beautiful and I get a lot of compliments from the people that come over but I am ready for a change.  I have been into the monochromatic color scheme for a little while and I really like it.  Now I am just going to have it with a cream color instead of a golden color.  I went by Benjamin Moore today and bought a sample of Cream Fleece.  It is so soft and soothing and well...creamy.  I am also going to paint my dining room a bluish gray.  I have always wanted to find a good blue/gray color and now that everybody is into that I can just copy someone else who has already figured out the perfect shade!  Yay!  I love it when I don't have to think that hard.  Just let google do all the thinking for you.  Here are some pics of cream fleece.

All of these rooms are done by interior designer Phoebe Howard.  She is amazing!  She has said in interviews that her go to colors are Cream Fleece and Winter Wheat from Bejamin Moore.  So most of the pics I found of cream fleece are hers. 

And now for the blue rooms.......

Difficult choices with the blues!  I don't know!  Which one is your favorite or do you know of a fabulous blue that you'd like to share?


  1. i hope the citrus strip works out for you. if it's a heavy duty job, it may not. i'm following you back!

  2. Cream Fleece is such a pretty color! I can't wait to see what you pick :o) Have a great weekend!

    PS. I am now following you on Linky :o)

  3. If you haven't picked a blue I love this Pale Smoke by Benjamin Moore.... here is a pic

    Can't wait to see what you decide!

  4. That color looks great in your house! I didn't know about that one. Who knew there were so many gray-blues out there? I like Pale Smoke because it's more of a warm gray. A lot of grays have blue-green in them and are more cold. I'm a warm color girl. Thanks for sharing! Love the playroom!

  5. I'm a huge fan of Gray Owl! Another blue-ish gray is Austere Gray by Sherwin Williams. I used it in our master bathroom. See it here:
    Good luck with your color choices, can't wait to see what you choose.

    1. I love the colors in your house! I had never heard of Austere Gray. It is very pretty!

  6. I'm feeling the coventry gray or gray owl-judging by the pics but they may be different in person, I loved your tablescape on top of your dresser that went with your table runner tutuorial!

    1. Thank you Brandie! I went with Quiet Moments. I can't even remember if that's one that I mentioned in my post. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't. Ha! I wish I could get a descent pic of my dining room to show the wall color.


I LOVE to read each and every one of your comments! I will always do my best to reply. Thank you for visiting!
