Calm and Inviting Whole House Paint Scheme

I am very excited to share today’s post with you as well! This is my 3rd “installment” of my whole-house-paint-scheme ideas. My previous 2 have proven to be very popular on Pinterest, so I say, “give the people what they want!”
The first scheme was the Soothing and Sophisticated palette, and the 2nd was Stormy Skies. Also, in my last post I shared my method for making a digital paint color floor plan, like the ones I use in these posts. This time I chose to keep the palette in shades of gray, because, hey, I just love gray!
Gray is neutral and calming, but has so many variations. It can be paired with any color scheme, design style, and many wood tones. Gray is always a good idea.

If you like the tones of the colors, but think they might feel a bit dark in your home, you can always have them mix your paint at 50% or 75% to acheive a lighter shade.

    I found your "Stormy Skies" pallet on line but only the picture and not your original post. Where can I find this original post?

    Do you have any pictures of the kitchen from your post Calm and Inviting Whole House Paint Scheme? I'm painting my kitchen repose gray and am trying to decide which white to paint my cabinets. I see you have a BM color. Do you have pictures of this kitchen? If so, I'd love to see them :)

    Wanting to do Grey's through out my house. My kitchen cabinets are hickory , not dark, but not super light either. My husband says no to painting them. I have 2 east facing windows, good morning light but gets darker as the day goes. What color Grey should I go with ? Ceiling and trims will be white.
