Paint Colours In Our Home
Updated: May 16, 2019
The number one question I am asked on my Instagram page is "what are the paint colours you have used?" So I thought I would list each one below...
Interior Walls (everywhere except the bathrooms and guest bedrooms) - Haymes Polar Bear #1.
Description: it's a very light grey and I believe from memory is found in the white section at Paint Spot.
Side note: please don't ask Bunnings to mix this paint for you. I have been told over and over by my followers whom have done this that it comes out a cream colour. Instead if you are in Victoria go to Paint Spot or elsewhere in Australia pop into a specific Haymes Paint Store.
Double feature doors in master bedroom/walk in wardrobe/ensuite - Dulux Deep Storm.
Description: a very dark navy charcoal gunmetal colour.
Side note: in my Instagram photos it is hard to capture the true colour of the doors as many think they are black.
Wainscoting (wall panelling) and all trims - Dulux Vivid White in a high gloss.
Description: Dulux Vivid White is very popular here in Australia. It's a crisp white that looks amazing in all styles of homes.
Side note: Dulux Vivid White when applied as a high gloss starts to go a little creamy over time. If you are not happy with this look don't have it mixed as a high gloss.
Guest bedroom #1 -
Description: a moody gunmetal navy blue that is still light enough not to look black..
Guest bedroom #2 - Dulux Palmerin.
Description: the perfect dark green.
Ceilings - Taubmans Tradex Matt White Ceiling Paint.
Description - the whitest of white ceiling paints we could locate.
Disclaimer: I recommend always purchasing a test pot and paint a sample on a number of walls to get a true reflection of how each shade looks in darker and lighter parts of your home.
The samples above will also look different on each computer screen and however hopefully with my descriptions I have provided as much detail as possible to assist with your own paint selections.
