Paint color answers

Some of you had questions about our paint colors and our process... so let's do this. 

We chose the neutral ceiling color first and made sure that it worked with the travertine flooring we fell in love with. {That sounds easy, but neutrals can have a green cast, pink cast etc.}The living room and studio color are from the same family on the fan deck to give a little variety, while keeping things balanced. It was the same thought process for the playroom... the laundry room color is a darker version of the playroom. Long story short- we like lots of colors in our house, just variations of a few colors to keep it simple and monochromatic.

Some people feel more comfortable in a Skittle house- a different bright color in each room and some pick one neutral color for the whole house. We are somewhere in between.
