As I have posted about painting my first floor rooms,
I have received some questions about paint colors.
Here they all are in one place.
This custom creamy white is in every room in my downstairs.
Walls and trim in living and dining rooms.
Trim in entry.
Trim and cabinets in kitchen.
Walls and trim in family room.
I know nothing about paint formulas.
I included below the information from the top of my paint can.
I think it will work with any paint brand but I’m not promising anything!

This Laura Ashley yellow called Cowslip used to be on my living room walls
and below the chair rail in my dining room.
I adored it for years but eventually got tired of it.
It’s very bright and I used semi-gloss which didn’t help.
It remains on my kitchen island and I do still love it there.
Laura Ashley colors are available at Lowe’s.
Navy paint colors are hard. I have tried over the years
to find the perfect one. I didn’t have much success
until I found Naval by SW.
In my opinion, it is a classic and true navy blue.
Here it is on my front door.
I also used Naval on some shelving in my kitchen.
To make things simple,
once I found Naval I just used the lighter version
found on the paint strip for my kitchen walls.
Windy Blue has just a hint of periwinkle.
It’s very fresh and bright.
Upward is the next lightest shade from Windy Blue.
Honestly, on my entry walls I can’t really tell much difference.
I probably should have gone down 2 shades.
Live and learn.
