We get a lot of questions about our house….
…and most of them are asking for our paint colors.
We didn’t know that we had such an assortment, but I guess we do.
Here’s what the front of the Cavender house looks like today.
Most of the brick house was painted “vanilla cream” when we moved in. For some unknown reason, the garage and the eaves were painted “Avocado Green”.
It was not our style.
I had been touching up with the leftover vanilla cream paint the previous owner left in the garage ……….. until I accidentally threw away the can. We haven’t been able to exactly color match it yet.
All the cedar (fence, patio posts, and shutters) were stained Behr – Russett with just a 1/4 of the colorant added. To let the wood show through.
The front door is currently Behr – Sweet Mandarin. Way more “Orange” than the pic above. Like a Crayola crayon.
The interior of our house is pretty simple. Every room is the same khaki color.
We think khaki is the perfect neutral for all the red and black.
BTW, Here’s what I had to stand over to get the previous picture.
The fireplace, Jamie painted Ralph Lauren – Granite on the very first day we had keys to the house.
It’s not too black, and it’s not too grey.
Way better than the dingy olive color that was poorly slapped on it by the previous owner.
All of our rooms are painted Martha Stewart – Fawn. It’s the perfect khaki. It Looks warm all day and cool in the nighttime.
Our paint and stain colors are all available at Home Depot,
So knock yourselves out stealing our style……
