We had to pick paint colors for all of the rooms. We had the Sherwin-Williams color samples that the builder had given us. We also had the tile and carpet samples to work with. The range of color choices was bewildering, at least to me.
My wife had a pretty good idea of what she wanted for the main living spaces, the dining room and master bedroom. The great room, foyer, loft and hallway are all the same color. The kitchen has one bold accent wall, similar to the color of the brick, and another color for the other walls. Our children had ideas about what colors they wanted in the bedrooms. We ended up choosing 10 different colors.
We were concerned about the number of colors we chose and whether that would exceed the builder’s paint cost estimate, but we heard from his office later in the week that we were within budget; great!
