My friend Julia from Hooked on Houses is hosting her first ever Hooked on Fridays party today! Here's what I'm hooked on this week.
That is how I usually feel when I'm standing in front of one of these.
Too many choices! Too many possibilities that would leave me with a kitchen the color of a giant pumpkin. (Remind me to share that story with you sometime.) Maybe you've had the same problem.
I take home 253 of those little sample chips, then narrow it down to 48 colors which I will test on my walls before deciding on a color that I end up painting over the next week. I've repainted more rooms than I care to admit. (ok, ok, The Hubster has repainted more rooms than I care to admit.)
Well, I have two words for you...
Did you know that they sell paint in stores and online? And not just any paint. Magnificently, beautifully, gloriously colored paint.
It's perfect for someone like me because there are only about 30 colors to choose from. But each color is perfect. And why wouldn't they be? They pay designers big bucks to make sure their colors are wonderful.
So far I have used the Cappuccino in my bedroom, Latte in the master bath and Silver Sage in the playroom. Love them all!
The quality of the paint is great too. I've always been very loyal to one particular brand that starts with the letters S W. The Restoration Hardware paint went on beautifully and covered just as well.
And it's 20% off through January so that makes it about $25 a can for the Velvet (eggshell) finish.
Restoration Hardware isn't paying me to tell you this (but they should). I just had a hard time finding a Restoration Hardware paint review before buying it so I thought I'd share my love with the world.
P.S. - Many thanks to The Hubster's cousin, Paul, who shared this little secret with me.
