I only ended up deciding on it because I found it in the Oops section at our local hardware store.
I have no idea what the color was even called. As you can see it was a very neutral color, so neutral in fact that Mr. Front Porch asked me why I even bothered.
Unfortunately, I never fully completed painting our master bedroom. I had to stop and wait for Mr. Front Porch to come home from work since some areas were far too high to do on my own.
Sherwin-Williams has various color selection tools on their site to utilize in helping you with your paint color selections. I chose to use their Color Visualizer where you can picture it before you paint it. The powerful Color Visualizer will turn your computer into a virtual design studio.
With the Color Visualizer you are able to download your own picture or pick from one of their many scenes.
Since I want to redo our bedroom I picked one of their bedroom scenes to play around with. After you select your scene you can then choose what paint colors you would like to paint with.
The first selection I made was SW 0031 Dutch Tile Blue for the walls. Looks good, but I decided I wanted to see what the ceiling would look like painted even though I have always been a white ceiling kind of gal.
For the ceiling I chose SW 6164 Svelte Sage, which I have used in our home already and love. What a difference a painted ceiling makes! It totally adds the wow factor to this space.
You can spend hours playing around with the Color Visualizer tool, but I needed to get down to business. I downloaded a pic of our actual master bedroom and plugged in some of the colors I was considering using.
First up was SW 7651 Front Porch. I was looking for a color outside my norm and well, Front Porch just called out my name! ;) Not quite what I am looking for though.
SW 6211 Rainwashed it is. Sherwin-Williams asked me to try out their Harmony® Interior Acrylic Latex Paint for this project. I was very pleased to learn the many benefits of the Harmony® Paint line. It is a zero VOC formula that helps reduce common indoor odors like those from your pets, cooking and smoke to help rooms stay fresher, longer. And Harmony contains formaldehyde-eliminating technology that helps reduce VOCs from potential sources like carpet insulation and fabrics. It also gives your walls a washable, durable finish. This acrylic paint is GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GreenGuard Certified for Children and Schools.
I can hardly wait to get our entire space painted and share it with you all!
