How to Pick the Perfect Paint Color

The most common question I get on my Instagram and blog is “What is the paint color in that room?”. We all struggle to try to find the perfect paint color. I can’t tell you how many times I was convinced that the paint chips I had picked out were perfect for a room. Only to get them home and realize I was way off!

So what’s the secret? Should we paint sample after sample on the wall with hopes that a color that looked great in someone else’s home might look great in ours too?Or should we create mood boards that include all of the colors in a room and select the paint colors that way?

FINDS OF THE WEEK // The Fiddle Leaf Search

My recent renovations in our house have helped a lot as I have donated a ton of bags of clothing and a lot of furniture! It feels so good. But there is one thing that drives me crazy 24/7. And that is my purse.

FIND OF THE WEEK // Chalkboard Stencils

I just realized I should probably do a new blog post on collecting chalkboards. If you walk around my house I think you would be shocked to see how many I have hanging on my walls. Technically I think I have another collection … chalkboards (you can see when I’ve posted about them here, here and here). Big surprise.

The problem is … what do I put on them? I love writing funny things and messages but I don’t love my handwriting. Fortunately, I came up with a solution.
