Pink and Green Thursday: Paint the Town

Mark and I spent some time last night on the Benjamin Moore website.  They have a feature that allows you to select a room by type (living, dining, kitchen, etc.) and then choose a paint color, trim color, and accent color.  It's amazing!!!  You are able to transform any room of your choosing in just seconds.  I have found a few colors that I think will be perfect in our new house.

I like Fallen Timber for the living room and Newburg Green for the dining room.  Both rooms have a lot of windows so I think the trim to wall color ratio and the light coming in from the windows will balance out these darker shades nicely.

For the master bedroom, I like Woodlawn Blue because it feels serene and spa-like.  And for the guest bath, I think Charcoal Slate would be a fun color.  Imagine the punch you could give the room with brightly colored towels!

Can you tell that all I've been thinking about is paint colors????  I thought it would be fitting for this Thursday to paint the town Pink and Green...

Be sure to play along with Trish at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover.


  1. I used that cupcake picture today too!! Great minds? Absolutely!

    I am so excited about you getting into your new house. I simply can't wait to see it all decked out for the holidays. Sip hot chocolate in front of one of the fireplaces?! I love you, Jen!!


  2. Inspiration indeed! I need to paint so badly! I've got to freshen these rooms up a bit!

  3. Oooohhh pretty colors you've chosen!!! That Newburg Green is awesome!!!! I'd love to add some colored paint to my neutral house but I guess it works out being able to change the colors easily by choosing different accessories and furniture instead of repainting the walls. :)

  4. picking new paint colors is always sooooo much fun!

    I cannot wait to hear more about the house. OH! Did I tell you that my Mom maybe be moving to a new place off of Magazine? I am excited.

  5. Benjamin Moore is the best paint around.
