Today I”m so happy to be teaming up with Sherwin-Williams today to showcase some of my favorite summer paint colors.
You see…..I love to paint.
I would rather paint a room than fix a pot roast any day of the week.
Today is about fun and summer and sunshine and lemonade and green grass….
This is my home away from home.
This is my local Sherwin-Williams store.
I have been walking through those double glass doors way before I ever had a blog.
This is me at my local paint store.
(total aside: this is the first in a series of pictures where I thought it would be hilarious to toss the paint chips in the air. Ummm…..can I tell you all the awkward expressions I made in the process? Only this photo was un-award enough to make the blog).
I should have taken a picture of me waving my hands and pointing and asking a question…..
….because that’s what I’m normally doing when I’m standing in front of the paint chip display.
The best piece of advice someone ever gave me when I purchased my first home…..was to make friends with my local paint store.
And they were right.
Because sometimes when you purchase your first home or start a remodel project or re-do a kitchen or a bathroom….
….you start here.
Standing in front of the paint chips.
And it can be a little overwhelming.
That’s why I ask questions. And that’s why I’m friends with all the people that work at the Sherwin-Williams store.
They know what the best trim color is and if you should paint enamel over latex and how to paint a ceiling and what paint you should use in a bathroom…..
…..and on and on and on.
You see….when it comes to paint…..they know the answers.
And now….without further hand-waving or pointing…..
…..here’s my five favorite colors I picked for summer.
I almost sighed when this picture came up.
This is my go to coral.
It’s the perfect almost orange….but with the slightest hint of pink coral.
I love this pink.
I painted the hutch in the gatehouse SW 6855 Dragon Fruit and I love it, too.
It’s the kind of pink you would take out on the town and ask to the dance.
A little can go a long way with this vibrant color….so I recommend starting with a piece of furniture.
Kind of like dating it first. 🙂
Okay….seriously….can we start with the name?
Who wouldn’t love a paint color with a positive outlook?
This yellow is soft and warm and cheerful.
And it looks so pretty when you pair it with navy or gray.
I love this green because it reminds me of the back field here on our property.
It’s fresh and fun and vibrant and full of life.
I want to stripe a wall in this green with white and add a canvas painted with a yellow monogram.
I like a little bit of purple in all my rooms during the summer.
It’s almost a neutral….but with a little pop of color.
This purple is not overwhelming.
It doesn’t shout.
It simply whispers to you when you enter the room.
And there you have it…..five of my favorite colors for summer.
But why stop there?
There are hundreds of color choices waiting to meet you…..
….just around the corner at your Sherwin-Williams store. 🙂
PS I think I found my favorite color of all. 🙂
