Our Sherwin Williams Renovation Paint Palette 

We went with cool shades of blue and gray including Sherwin Williams Heron Plume, Sea Salt, Comfort Gray and Rainwashed

I love paint. I love to paint rooms. My husband is a control freak with perfectionist tendencies so he hates when I volunteer to paint. Luckily for him, paint was included in the price of our renovation.
That didn't mean that I didn't get to have a grand ol' time selecting paint colors. I did.

Once again we went with our ol' standby - Sherwin Williams. Actually, our contractor's choice, but also the paint we used in our last house exclusively. I really like the Sherwin color palette and felt like I was comfortable navigating their swatches.

Not gonna lie, Pinterest was my guiding light in this department. With such a clean slate in front of me, I felt immense pressure to ensure that everything felt cohesive. At this time, in 2015 my point of reference was more Coastal, opposed to Farmhouse. But I totally see this color palette very much aligned with Farmhouse now.

You can see some of my research in these two boards.

I fell in love with Sherwin William's Sea Salt first. There were so many inspiring bathrooms using that beautiful color on Pinterest that I just had to have it paired up with my new dark gray slate floor, white cabinets and tile. 

From there, the search was on to find coordinating hues that would leave the upstairs with a fresh, coastal feel. Surprisingly, it took me a until the last minute and the painters were literally on the way to the paint store for me to decide to go with Comfort Gray for the master bedroom (Sea Salt was designated for the bathroom). Of course it's going to coordinate with Sea Salt, it's right next to it on the swatch.

Terrible lighting, and I apologize for that, but here is a look at Rainwashed in Grace's room.
