Home Paint Colors
I am asked almost every day about our home paint colors. To make it easier for all of you, I have listed all of our paint colors in one place.
Thanks so much for your interest in our home paint colors. I have consolidated all of our paint colors below and included photos so you can make sure you are looking at the right room! Please remember that I edit my photos, so the actual paint color may not be the exact same color as it is in my photo.
I wanted to try to explain how I chose our home paint colors. I wish I had a scientific explanation, but I don’t. The trim and cabinets in our entire home are Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee. I have always thought the dining room is one place where dark paint usually works and my dining room paint color is, in fact, the darkest of any color in our home.
I think our color palette is fairly neutral but we actually have eleven different wall colors in our home. I am thinking about changing some of the colors and I can’t wait to start on that project next year.

How to Match Paint Colors
Dunn Edwards is a west coast based paint company. So how can you find a matching color from a different paint brand? I like to use Encycolorpedia which allows you to type in any paint color and it will suggest matching paint colors from other brands.
I have included photos of each room so you can match the paint color to the right room.

My 100 Year Old Waco Home
You might be surprised to learn that we only used four home paint colors in our entire Waco home! The interior of the home is all the same color.
Exterior // Benjamin Moore Pure White
Exterior shutters and door //Benjamin Moore Black
Haint Blue Porch Ceiling // Sherwin Williams Sky High, SW 6504

I often get asked about the paint color on the kitchen island in our Waco home. I bought this island at the Round Top Antique Show and it is vintage. I think it could even be the original color. Sadly, I do not know what the color is. I am so sorry!

Love your color choices, your master sth was the inspiration for my color choice for mine, thank you I m so happy with the out come!!!!
I am so glad, Pam! I bet it is beautiful 🙂
Have been using Swiss Coffee, in Texas was Benjamin Moore, so when we moved back to California I continued using it, Benjamin Moore again. Didn’t realize the outside of your home was the same color…it is just the best creamy white color you could ever find, inside or outside.
It is really is, Cindy! I love that you think so too 🙂
Can you suggest a “haint” blue for my Atlanta front porch ceiling? So many are more on the turquoisey side
can you tell us your thoughts on dustruffles on the beds to hide the underpart of the bed or to use a clean bed mattress/springs stand that shows neat legs and easier to dust and vacumn under beds. i am concerned with bugs, scorpions crawling on dustruffles and other bugs. give us your opinions
I want to purchase the fall leaves wreath. Please tell me where. Thank you
Love your home, what good taste can do for a one hundred year old house.
Thank you for your blog this is what I want my house to look like
Love your style, especially because it is eclectic and full of found treasures. I also use Swiss Coffee in several rooms in my house. Question: what level of gloss do you use for kitchen cabinets and trim?
I just love the pop of color in your kitchen and butler’s pantry. It is such a soft and pretty green. Such a happy color.
Everything looks beautiful in your home.
Thank you so much Tammy! I agree, the green is such a happy color!
Ah. The light on the ceiling in the master bath is devine!!! Can you share the brand?
Isn’t it incredible Denise? It is vintage, I found it many, many years ago at a vintage flea market. The crystals throw the most amazing rainbows around the room when the light is turned on.
I really enjoy your blog! I am looking forward to future photos. You have me inspired to redo a furniture side board table. It’s a dark wood with a white marble stone top. I may white wash it. What are your thoughts 💭 using the white wash since the marble is white?
