Whole House Paint Colors

Looking for the perfect coastal colors for a beach cottage look? See the details and photos of the paint colors we used in our farmhouse by the sea!

I have a slight obsession of researching colors from other people’s homes.  Do you identify at all??  (Please say yes!Smile)  For any of you who might have tendencies like mine, I thought a list of all our house colors in one spot would be helpful and save you time researching.  Here they are.    {Some of these colors I’ve had color matched at different paint stores than the brand mentioned.}

As you can see, the actual color swatches look a LOT different than they do in the actual rooms sometimes.  Lighting makes all the difference!

  1. Hi, hope you can help me pick some colors. living room & dining room are BM coyote trail 1224 with thick white trim & ceiling. Central point of the room is the fireplace that is stone, & is shades of light beige to a redish color. floor is hardwood mahogany. Dining room is same, with lots of white trim.
    Need color for foyer, kitchen & den. They all flow into each other. Foyer has brown stone floor (I think it is marble) and dark mahogany color door, has high ceiling. Kitchen has chocolate wood cabinets floor is travetine with gold veins. den is open to kitchen, floor is mahogony stained. Was thinking same color in each room, perhaps in beige but different shades. Do you think this would work? Do you have any suggestions on what color & what shades would work? I need to get it right because I will not be painting again for a very long time!, Thank you.
