The Power of Paint

paint has an amazing power — one in that it transforms the look of whatever it is you are painting, and two that it can take hours for your to chose the perfect shade. so after considerable time invested into researching whites for trim and doors in the house I settled to Benjamin Moore’s Minced Onion. I wanted a more creamy white that is similar to the ones you would see in old apartments and homes.

A big decision — this will be the paint that we will be using everywhere in the house. Meanwhile, Sergey was in charge of the door color on the outdoor side. He narrowed it down pretty quickly, and in my opinion chose a pretty fantastic looking green – Bavarian Forest.

a lesson for me? spend less time choosing colors? but no, that’s too much fun to give up )

Now, you haven’t even heard of my Farrow&Ball obsession…
