We all know and love Paloma. She has such a stylish outlook on decor that I knew I needed to get her to guest blog. Today she is sharing with us one of her favorite paint colors! I got to say it’s a favorite of mine as well. I’ve used in a clients home and have something similar in my own living room!
Hello, High-Heeled readers! I am happy to be filling in today while Camila enjoys her family getaway in Colombia. I hope they are having a fabulous time!
I know that many of us are perpetually on the hunt for the perfect paint color. It turns out that I am currently obsessed with one that I recently found. For the longest time, I have been faithful to Benjamin Moore paints. However, a couple of months ago, my husband and I decided to paint the tan walls in our formal living room and dining room a darker chocolate color. We tried several colors but some had too much green in them, others had too much of a mauvey quality. Then, on a trip to Home Depot, we stumbled upon BEHR’s new Premium Plus Line and decided on “Aging Barrel” which is the perfect mocha shade. It isn’t too dark, but has a deep, rich quality to it. The paint has the primer built into it, so we were able to save time by cutting a step out of the paint process.
The paint has great coverage and we only had to apply two coats. I posted pictures of the new color on La Dolce Vita back in March and it was a big hit! I have received so many compliments on the color and have even had friends and readers let me know that they decided to use it in their homes. I would highly recommend this beautiful, versatile shade to anyone who wants to add a little color to their walls.
