Day Three of Paint Color Week & today I’m sharing my favorite neutral. This color was my hardest paint color decision that I made when we were building this house because it had to meet several requirements. I knew, because of my own decorating style that I wanted a yellow-neutral over a brown-neutral because I lean toward a whimsical decor at times. And I learned from my previous house after one very long weekend that involved about 4 different paint colors, several tears, & almost as many trips to Lowes, that I am a pale-yellow-neutral kind of girl. I want to be free to use a variety of patterns and colors against my neutral paint and thru the years, I’ve found that a yellow-neutral lets me do that.Having decided on a path of yellow, there were still so many out there to choose from, so I bought several samples & had the painters paint a sample of each in every area that this was going to be used so that I could see it in the correct light. And there were several areas that I was going to use this. In fact, this paint color is in about 60% of my house, including the family room, kitchen, & breakfast areas, plus hallways, most of the basement & 2 of my girls’ bedrooms. So you see why it was a huge decision, but in the end, Morning Sun stood up to the challenge, & I have never second-guessed my decision.Here are a few pics of Morning Sun in the family room…To see a few more spaces where I used Morning Sun, click on these links:Abby’s RoomLola’s RoomFoyerKitchenBasementDon’t forget to stop back by Thursday for the Paint Color Party & link up some of your faves!
