Remember this room?
It all started with the perfect white paint.
If you have ever tried to find a white paint before….you understand the impact of that statement.
Can we all agree and pinky promise and nod in understanding and tell future generations…..
….that all white paint is not or ever has been….the same.
When we bought our first house…..the bathroom had beautiful blue tile. And let’s be clear…..I use the word beautiful in retrospect. I look back now on that tile in the way that someone does who no longer lives at the house with the challenge of brilliant blue tile.
But at the time?
It was BLUE.
Capital letter blue.
And that brilliant blue tile needed to be surrounded by the calm serenity of white paint.
I went to a home improvement store and asked for some white paint and came home and painted the bathroom.
Except it wasn’t really white. Somehow the blue managed to edge its way in and take over and make the white look pink.
And not the look anyone should strive for.
I didn’t understand?
Wasn’t white paint…..always just white?
And the answer (just in case you needed it for party conversation) is…..
All white paints are not the same.
And that’s why the white for this room was so important.
It needed a warm white with the tiniest bit of yellow to warm up the space and make it feel welcoming.
If the white was too white….the room would feel sterile.
If the white was too gray…..the room would feel dingy.
So beach bedroom…..meet SW 6385 Dover White.
And the best part? If you have paint questions like me….you can always ask.
Because they know the answers.
Like helping me find the perfect white paint for my beach bedroom makeover and knowing the best color for a room and how to choose the paint that works for your space.
So next time you have a paint question….your local Sherwin-Williams store has the answers.
Even for a room…..
….full of capital blue tile. 🙂
