With each Instagram post I receive questions about our paint colors. I don’t take selecting paint colors lightly. In fact, I slightly panic over them. Okay, completely panic over them. But you don’t need to. I have you covered!

We utilize the help of painters and once it goes on, I feel committed to the color, so I want to make sure I get it right, the first time.

It was our hope when we purchased our current home we would just use 1-2 paint colors for the entire home. However, the lighting is vastly different in different areas of our home, so I used several different shades of cream to best fit each space.

To help you decide which paint color is right for you, I’m breaking them down with pros and cons of each, where they’re best used, etc.

We first used Farrow & Ball White Tie in the garage. Yes, the garage. I wanted it to feel bright, cheery and fresh and we accomplished just that with Farrow & Ball White Tie.

We loved it so much we painted the lake cottage entryway, hall, living room, kitchen, stairwell and lower living room with it as well. It’s a beautiful fit for our slightly more modern lake home.

I first considered this color after seeing it in my friend Ina Garten’s home. I loved how warm, yet airy it made the bedroom and office appear. (And yes, I’m dreaming).

It also appears to be a close fit to what Serena and Lily used in catalogs in 2019.
