Selecting the perfect paint color is not an easy task! There are several things to consider. And even when you have the colour in your home it might not be *just right*.
The power of paint is pretty incredible. It can really transform a space. A fresh coat of paint can make a house look like new. Before we moved into our home is was quite dark – that’s how the previous owner liked it. I prefer a timeless look with light and bright canvas on our main living spaces.
There are literally SO MANY shades of white paint. And let’s face it, it isn’t fun to paint an entire room and decide it isn’t exactly what you were hoping for, only to turn around and paint all over again – BEEN THERE.
Let’s cut to the chase.
We used Benjamin Moore – Chantilly Lace OC-65 on our entire house. All the rooms. Doors. Baseboards. Built in Shelves. The brick on our mantle. All Vanities. Even our kitchen cabinets. ALL Chantilly Lace.
I prefer the look of a matte finish.
In my opinion white walls are where it’s at. White walls are a blank canvas and then you can incorporate colours through furniture, rugs and accessories.

“As delicate and refined as the lace it was named after, this crisp, clean white evokes images of pure silk, soft linen and simpler times.”
