One of the questions I receive the most is about the paint colors in my house. For me, painting is the quickest, most inexpensive way to update a room, if you do it yourself. I also realize picking the perfect white paint color is harder than it seems. When I decided I was repainting my living room (for the fourth time in two years), I never would have thought picking a white paint color would be so hard. I finally narrowed it down to 5 colors and I bought samples of each. I was so excited to get home and paint a small section of my wall to see which one I liked best. To my disappointment, they all looked alike and I didn't know which one I was going to choose. I ended up leaving the sample areas there for a few days and looked at them during different times of the day to see how the paint colors changed, depending on lighting, before I made my decision. Sometimes, picking a paint color is easy and you know the one right away; other times, it may take longer to make the final decision. No matter what, remind yourself it's just paint and it can easily be changed.
For now, these are the current paint colors in my home:
