Moody and Modern Color Palette for a 20-Year-Old House Refresh
One of our frequently asked questions is always about paint colors. Today, we are highlighting the colors we selected for our Adrian Circle, whole house project to create a perfect moody and modern color palette.
Go Bold with Cabinetry Colors
Did you know the moody trend still leans neutral? We love to add color to kitchens, especially with the custom cabinetry element for a statement piece. Benjamin Moore knew what they were doing when they created Dark Olive. This is the perfect color for a forest green and pairs nicely with Benjamin Moore’s White Dove as shown in our Adrian Circle’s Kitchen, creating an ideal balance and contrast.
We also carried the Dark Olive to the adjacent powder bathroom baseboard, casing, and interior of the bathroom door. This pairs nicely with the William Morris Pimpernel wallpaper we can’t get enough of.
Dramatic Black Paint
The ample amount of natural light flooding in, paired with Benjamin Moore’s Wrought Iron walls and cabinetry creates the perfect moody library for reading a book or working from home. In some cases dark paint can make a room look smaller, we lean toward the opposite while adding depth and visually expanding the room.
Mixing White Paints
All white paints may look the same, especially when considering online images, but we love to use contrasting whites to bring interest to white walls and trim. As shown below the walls are Benjamin Moore Dove Wing paired with Benjamin Moore Simply White baseboard and window casing.
Painted Bathroom Vanities
Not only do painted vanities add interest to any bathroom, but they also help with reflecting light and making the space feel more significant than it is. We designed this kids’ bathroom around Sherwin Williams Quiver Tan, paired with black accents and it is to die for. Check out our Jkath custom vanity collection, available in 10 finishes, 7 painted, and 3 stain colors for your next bathroom project. Also, highlighting favorite bathroom vanity hardware here.
While we love a classic paint color, we can’t forget a natural white oak with a subtle stain finish, as in the primary bathroom vanity shown here. The textured reeded details make this an heirloom piece for decades to come.
Go ahead, and use any or all of these colors in your next project, with newly added inspiration to take it up one notch for a stunning and unexpected reveal.
