My House Paint Colors: House of Blues

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends!!  Christmas is always such a magical season each year and I hang on to all of the memories as long as I can….and then it’s back to work – LOL!!  So, here we go!!  My House Paint Colors:  House of Blues.

To continue along with this magical theme, I decided it was time to do a post about entire house paint colors.  I have been wanting to do a post on the colors we used downstairs in our rebuild (FOR.EV.ER), but time has just breezed by this fall.  

There is something truly magical about the way paint color transforms a room, and I wanted to share the names and paint colors we chose for each room.  I hope you find tons of inspiration to begin your 2019 off with a bang!!

***I’ll do a post on How to Choose Paint Colors in the next post.  This post will just contain pictures and names of our house paint colors.***

My House Paint Colors

So you can tell from the colorsnap tool, that our house paint colors have a  blue/gray base to them, with hints of a green undertone. 

I personally tend to lean green (because I am a nature lover) – so my paint colors reflect that in their base color. 

I also choose paint colors with a blue-base rather than a yellow-base.  Those are the colors I wear in clothing, and therefore the ones I like to work with.

If I had to pick a decor “style” for our house from my color palette, I would describe it as coastal farmhouse chic…..kinda – LOL!! 

What do you think?  What is your style?  Let’s get to some colors!!

  1. Your house is beautiful. You did a great job of picking beautiful colors. I love the aqua sphere. Is it more blue than green? That’s what I’ve been considering for my diningroom. But I’m a green lover.

    1. Hi Lillian! Thanks for the kind feedback, and yes Aqua-Sphere is more blue.

      This may help:
      – Go to Sherwin Williams Color Snap
      – Then scroll down and click Color Snap Visualizer for Web
      – Then click “Explore Color”
      – Then click “Digital Color Wall”
      – Then click “Color Collection” (in a block )
      – Then click “Timeless Colors”

      Aqua-Sphere is SW 7613 (3rd from left) 3rd block down. Hover and click on it. Then you can compare other colors you like with it (maybe more green color choices).

      Hope this helps-
      Jael 🙂
