Feature Paint Colour!!

I absolutely LOVE my work being featured on various sites, it reminds me all my hard work making things pretty again is worth it!

Our home has been a labour of love for 5 years now. Although it seems our home is constantly changing, it is a true passion of mine to repaint, redecorate and renovated. Sometimes I think it drives Ryan insane, however he has grown up with a mother who has done exactly the same as me… you would think he was used to it by now! 😉

A few weeks ago I posted about my “go-to” paint colours (refresh your memory here!), they are neutral colours that make any home fresh and welcoming.  Recently, our bathroom was featured on a popular blog that showcases paint colours called Favourite Paint Colours.

You will find Cement Grey by Benjamin Moore all over my home, it is truly my “go-to”!



Bathroom Reveal!! #2

A few months ago during a typical chaotic morning, Ryan accidentally dropped a cologne bottle into our bathroom sink. The moment the bottle hit the sink it cracked in a hundred different directions.

When we went to fix the top of the vanity, we found out the sink couldn’t be bought separately. So…. that meant an entire new vanity was required. There were parts of the bathroom that needed paint touch ups, so it was a perfect time to do that as well. The whole thing was rather unexpected, unplanned and unbudgeted. Not my usual approach but one I needed to deal with.

As a reminder this is what I started with…




I wanted to match this bathroom with the other bathroom we recently renovated. The style of the vanity we purchased was in line with what we did in our other bathroom and the paint colour was the same (Cement Gray- Benjamin Moore).

Here is the bathroom after!!




I still haven’t found the perfect photo or art décor to put above the toilet. Nothing is grabbing my attention, so I am leaving the wall blank until I find the piece that was meant to be there!

Here are some side by side comparisons…




Tomorrow I will share the cost breakdown and a few concessions made to get the most for our money!

Stay tuned 🙂


My Go-To Paint Colours!

From a decorating perspective, I prefer consistency. If you walk through our home, the tones are the same and many rooms have the same colour. Some may find this boring. Personally, I think the element of consistency will bring a home together, make it more warm and inviting.

This winter I plan to repaint our living room and bathroom, both rooms need to be tied into the rest of the house and freshened up. Both rooms are looking tired.

I am asked for paint recommendations a lot, specifically neutral colours that are not too “loud”.

If you need to freshen up a room or would like to introduce consistency into your colour pallet, here are my “Go-To” paint colours I would recommend:

Benjamin Moore- Muslin 1037


Benjamin Moore- Cement Gray 2112-60

cement gray Benjamin Moore- Stormy Monday 2112-50
