Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. We’ve passed Christmas and New Year’s!!
Things have changed in our household and I’ve put my DIY projects on hold for a bit while I get a handle on things. We’ve brought in our 3 nephews to live with us and I’ve made it a priority to give them a great place to call home for now. 6 children in the home has been challenging and it leaves less time for my blog and projects, but this is what needs to happen! The boys deserve it! Please be patient as I navigate through this and definitely stay tuned as we take it day by day! Now on to business as usual..
The Benjamin Moore color trends were announced for 2017 and I would love to share them with you! Color can make or break a room and it’s just as important as the decor or furniture you put in it.
So are you ready to find out what the color of 2017 is???! Drum roll please!
Last year’s color of the year was simply white which came with excitement, but also disappointment. Benjamin Moore made up for the lack of color by choosing a deep and dark color that changes in the light between black and a blue/violet. It has the ambiance to make a room divine as the light changes through the day.
The 2017 color palette follows the same trend as the color of the year. There are some deep colors like Sea-Life, Burgundy, Salamander, Dinner Party… Benjamin Moore really loves the dark tones this year! A dining room or office would be great with any of these colors.
Some lighter colors on the list are Pink Bliss, Chalk White, Cloud Cover, and Iceberg. They are soft and light with a hint of colors such as pink, cream, and green.

I’m loving Iceberg for a bathroom. It might just make it into my master bathroom!
The current project is building a bedroom for the boys! They are picking out paint colors and I think we narrowed it down to gray walls with a thick red stripe. Who knows, it could change by the time paint is ready to go on the walls. It’s so fun to do it with them. I will be sure to post pictures of the bedroom when it’s finished!
I hope everyone is enjoying the New Year!
