511 Meets 39 (aka the beginning of a long and beautiful friendship)

Our besties bought a house! It is a 3 minute drive away and an 18 minute walk. It is amazing.
And they, so generously, asked me to help them with paint colors.
This is like asking me to help them to name their child. It is meaningful and something that I happen to love dearly.
I also know a pretty good deal about paint colors.

So, it’s Saturday night and I was supposed to go to sleep an hour ago, but instead I am designing the paint scheme for their new home (whether they like it or not!) and sending them emails with approximately 25 photos each of cool grays, warm grays, neutral taupes, blue grays…
They are going to be sorry they asked me for advice.
And I will love ever stinkin’ minute of this.


I have to say,

I kind of agree.

I’ve said before, every surface of our home, from bannister to bookshelf, wall to molding, is painted with Benjamin Moore.

In our home, I can personally vouch for

White Dove

Decorators White

Stonington Gray

Prussian Blue

I love You Pink


Lemon Ice

Bavarian Cream

Feather Gray


White Diamond

and will soon be experimenting with Ivory White in a big way.

I guess you can say I have a thing for this man, Ben. I can’t wait to see what he does for me next!
