Day 146: Relaxing Color!

by MJ Gourd


Day 146 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!

Life is stressful!  Our surroundings can calm us down or send us in a tail spin!  Why not surround yourself with soothing colors in your Happy Home?  Here are some of our favorites...

  Benjamin Moore's  Province Blue on the vanity is a nice compliment to Ben Moore's Summer Shower on the walls.  These colors, along with the marble floor and vanity top help to create this relaxing bathroom.

 White on white on white!  Ahhhhh!  The Simply White trim with the Dove white walls and the marble help relax us.  Add the polished nickle faucet and sconce plus the children's silhouettes and we just have to smile.

 More white on white with pops of blue.  Sweet dreams!

 Change rooms, change focus without losing that relaxing feeling.  Tan walls with a flat finish surrounded by chocolate brown trim with a satin finish.  Don't you just want to cozy up with a good book?

 The walls are  Ben Moore's  Woodlawn Blue and the trim is Kendall Charcoal.  It easily brings you into the office where the trim is Kendall Charcoal with Muslin walls.

 The two tone walls in this dining room help to create an intimate setting for a dinner party.  I like to use a darker color below a chair rail.  It helps to ground the space.
