I think the number one question I get lately is, “What is that paint color on the wall?” whenever I post about any room in our new home. So I wanted to do a post today sharing the first two colors in our rental. I love these two colors. We really got lucky that our rental already had some lovely paint colors on the walls & I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great neutral or a lovely navy. Here are the first two of our rental paint colors…
Well, it’s been a little more complicated than that. Since it’s a rental & I didn’t choose the colors or paint the walls I was left to dig through old paint cans in our 1800’s basement. You are welcome. Oh, & it doesn’t stop there. After finding the cans of paint & the color that was on the walls through out the majority of the home I realized it didn’t have a name on the can. Of course. I called Valspar & they said the code wasn’t a color & must have been a custom mix. So, what’s a girl to do? Bring the can to Lowe’s & compare every neutral paint sample to the can and your walls & find the perfect match. Well, I’m happy to say I found it! The color is an exact match to Valspar’s Milestone. The photos I took has a lot of natural light in them, but holding the sample up to the wall it’s a perfect match. This color is in most of the house like the upstairs guest bathroom, guest bedroom, sitting room, dining room, daybed room, & more.
This color was easier to find because the can was actually labeled. Win! I have not revealed the entire office on the blog yet, but I wanted to share the lovely navy color with you guys. I love that it’s not to dark & bold, but you still get the perfect navy touch. This room has two large windows so it gets a lot of natural light which is perfect for this darker color.
I will be back later with more paint colors in the home & of course more of the tour.
