I am regularly asked what paint finishes I recommend for clients…flat, eggshell, semi-gloss, etc. Presently, I am working on a project that my client’s requirements for paint are 1) washability and 2) low VOC! Most of the paint that I specify is either Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams brand. And within those two brands, there are many finish choices. If you love a flat finish, Sherwin Williams has two relativity new solutions to gain increased washability and other performance benefits. New technology at Sherwin Williams has given us two truly flat finishes that have excellent washability. These products are Emerald and Duration Home.
Both of these paints feature anti-microbial agents that inhibit the growth of mold and mildew on the paint surface. Also, both paints are available in all Sherwin Williams colors and custom tints.
I’ll share with you a few interesting paint color palettes from the Sherwin Williams line.
For a luxurious feel in the kitchen…
For Cabinets and Trim…
SW 7008 Alabaster
And for the walls…
SW 7037 Balanced Beige
This is a similar palette that I used on a beach house project. It gives a fresh, crisp feel to both kitchens and baths!
I love combining these colors with blue!
For another kitchen palette, you might like a cool color scheme of…
Dover White SW 6385 , Filmy Green SW 6190 and Underseas SW 6214
This is a very restful, cool type palette that I used in the same beach project in quiet sitting room…
And for a kitchen/family room combination, maybe a little heat added to the cool greens…
Surf Green SW 6473
Alabaster SW 7008
Hazel SW 6471
Composed SW 6472
Flower Pot SW 6334
The Flower Pot might be just in accents or accessories to give a kitchen a little pop of color!
