I have probably not actually heard that song since my early college years yet it’s the first thing that comes to mind when I say the words window and wall in the same sentence. Terrible I know. And please don’t continue on with the lyrics because it goes a little downhill after that. A lot downhill.
Okay, now on to more important things… Windows, Ceilings and Doors. If this article were a novel, the prologue would be my recent blog post “Ponder”ing your Wall Color? Or if this were New Moon, the other blog post would be Twilight. Get the idea? You must read the first one before you read this one. My ceiling, door and window colors are from the same paint card as Ponder which has some mega undertones.
When I started blogging I had a list in my phone of the first hundred or so articles I wanted to post. However, that pretty much went out the window when I saw the questions I was getting most. And since my goal is to help you, I decided to change it up! One of the questions I have gotten most is about our paint colors so here is PART TWO!
Over the last year or so, I constantly found myself pinning or screen-shotting (is that a word?) homes with dark window sashes. I knew I wanted light trim overall to keep the home light and bright but I love the elegance of dark molding.

As I’ve mentioned before, I wanted a fairly neutral canvas for our home to serve as a backdrop for my fun palette of colors. Using one paint card for most of the home is the best way to create that vanilla for all of the sprinkles. For all of the ceilings in our home, with the exception of the decorative ceilings, I chose the second lightest paint color on the card, Minute Mauve.

One thing I adore about our home is the open floor plan and the beautiful coffered ceiling in our living room. Before they had it all painted cream and light taupe so it all just blended into the oblivion. I wanted it to POP!
Another detail on my dream house wish list was dark, almost black, doors. I’ve always loved homes with this detail and I thought it would be the best way to add some architectural interest to our otherwise boring plain wooden doors.
Once again, thank you all SO much for reading my blog, loving my home and giving me such encouraging feedback. Until next time!
