all the paint colors in our house

I will be completely honest with you. This post is more for me than anyone. I am notorious for not remembering the paint colors in our house and when I’m asked for a name of a paint color that we used I usually have to run downstairs and search through the dozens of a paint cans we have to figure out which color it was! I’m also horrible at remembering which color is in each room, because – yes, we are those people that painted our entire house white with a different white in every room (SMH). That’s what you get for redoing your house room-by-room.

So, below are all the paint colors throughout our house for your reference (and mine) – including furniture!

All little bit about the paint colors and why we picked them:

Sherwin, Williams Pure White – This is a slightly softer white. It tends to still look pretty pure to my eye, but maybe not as bright or glaring as SW Extra White, because it has just a tiny bit of black and yellow in it. I love it in our kitchen because it didn’t compete with the white upper cabinets that we have, which was a big reason why I picked this particular color.

Sherwin, Williams Extra White – This is bright white. In fact, it is the base of SW colors so if you happen to buy one gallon too many you can return it because it’s un-tinted. I like this white because it is a true white, it does not look blue or yellow or gray in different lights. It is about as pure of a white you will ever get, but for some it can be too bright. I used this in our master bathroom because the shower tile is a very bright white and I knew anything different could really make the walls or tile look off so I just tried to color match the tile for a more seamless look.

Benjamin Moore, Decorators White – This is definitely a cooler white. I love it because it can look like a really light gray in some lights or even a REALLY light blue depending on the fabric that is next it to. In the daylight it just looks like a nice soft white, but at night with a lamp on it can certainly feel more like the gray color I was describing.

Benjamin Moore, Simply White – This white has certainly become one of my favorites over time. It is a pure white, meaning it doesn’t take on a ton of other color but it’s not as bright as the SW extra white. If I were to pick one white to paint my entire house again, it would be this one.

Benjamin Moore, White Dove – I wanted something warm for our fireplace without looking yellow – maybe stone-like is a better way to put it so I picked this color and could not happier with it. It is so pretty with the bright white walls next it to.

Sherwin Williams, Pearly White – This is a nice warmer white that pulls more of tan into the color. I used it as the trim color on our house. I thought it was a nice subtle contrast to the white siding and black doors that we have.

Benjamin Moore, Black Iron – This is really pretty bluer-black. In direct sunlight it can look navy, but inside a house it looks like a really pretty faded black which is why I put it on all our doors throughout the inside of our house.

Sherwin Williams, Caviar – I liked this color for our exterior doors because it is a very pure black, but slightly faded. It does not pull green or gray or blue in any way, it really is just a pretty black.
