Paint Colors and are you a No Reply Blogger?

March has been a very busy month for me!  
It did kind of come in like a Lion.....
New wood floors, new paint colors, new headboard, 
new bedding, lots of design work 
and a few trips too! 
With everything that was going on, 
I forgot to tell you about the paint color in the 
Master Bedroom.  
A few of you asked me what the color was 
and I was planning a post on it 
but hadn't gotten around to it yet.
The original color was Topsail Sherwin Williams 6217.  
I liked the color 
but when the new darker wood floors 
went in I felt kind of hemmed in by the color.  
I wanted something warmer and neutral.
So I went with the same color 
that I painted the Master Bathroom last year.
Paints Stains And Glazes/Houzz  Patience SW7555
I chose Patience Sherwin WIlliams 7555.  
I have used this color on many of my projects 
in my own home and with my clients.   
It is such a soothing, warm light neutral color 
that is very flattering.  
But here is the catch, 
when I was painting the bedroom,  
I came home on Friday midday, 
bought the paint and started painting.  
I got one wall finished with one coat and thought, 
"this is too yellow".  
I couldn't get it out of my head.  
I wasn't sure if it was because the other walls 
were still blue or if the floor was too warm and too dark, 
all I knew was that I would never forgive myself 
if I didn't do something about it!  
I figured I would paint the first coat on all of the walls 
and then see what I could come up with.  
I looked around for a lighter color in the basement 
but couldn't find anything.  
Just about that time Mr. Beaux came home.  
He offered to return the other two gallons of paint 
to the store to see if they could lighten them.  
And that's how I came up with this color.  
I am not sure really how much white they added 
to the original color... 
but I was happy with the result.  
SO, my answer to what the paint color is..... 
Patience with white added....
divine result! 
And in other paint news....
At the same time we were painting the bedroom 
we painted the Living Room.  
This is the color it was at Christmas time.  
The color was Benjamin Moore Quincy Tan HC-25.
Paints Stains And Glazes
We painted it a much lighter color.  Maison Blanche Sherwin Williams 7526.  
Paints Stains And Glazes by Columbus Paint & Wall Coverings Sherwin-Williams
 I know that it looks very similar 
but to me it is a world away from what it was before.  
I would show you the whole room 
but there are pictures leaning against walls 
and things are not quite together yet.  
 It's funny that I had picked this color out for my BFF's 
house last year (but she is not ready to paint yet)and then 
I recently saw it on Cote De Texas's blog.  
I loved the neutral grey/beige color with the stone.
 I can't wait to get the room finished!  
I feel like I have a lot of unfinished projects in each room.  But I will get there.... 
I have a deadline...... 
Miss Beaux's graduation!  

 I do want to quickly talk about the subject 
of No Reply Bloggers.  
A No Reply Blogger is blogger 
that does not have an email associated 
with their blog.  
When they leave lovely comments on my blog 
I can't respond to them!  
This makes Jackson sad!   
He is all about good manners and kindness to others.  
I found out that I was a 
No Reply Blogger after I switched to Google+.  
Maybe this happened to you too?  
If so, here is a link that can show you how to fix it:   
No Reply Blogger-How To Fix This.  

That will make Mr. Jackson VERY Happy!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Cindy-That looks so great. I love your color but I really liked the old one, too. That No Reply thing just drives me nuts. It is why I avoid Google Plus- it changes several settings and I, personally, don't think it is worth the hassle to use it-I think ti makes you lose more connections than it does adds connections. xo Diana

Absolutely wonderful job with your choices - doesn't it just feel so fresh, new and invigorating?

Your wood floors in your bedroom are amazing, just gorgeous. YAY!!

Debra@CommonGround said...

love the new lighter paint colors Cindy, I'm going to pin this post so I'll remember. Things are looking amazing!

Jan Hermann said...

Cindy, the colors are wonderful, warm and inviting. I'll be painting several rooms real soon. I wasn't a NO REPLY blogger until I joined Google Plus...and after finding out that I was, I must have changed the setting at least a dozen times. Now, I'm no longer a NO REPLY blogger - I've left GOOGLE Plus!! :)

Have a great week.

That is just lovely! The colors are perfect. And I'm so glad you mentioned no-reply bloggers. There are SO many people who've switched to Google+ and it is like being a detective to try to track down how to respond to them and so time consuming, yet I hate not responding to anyone who has taken the time to read my blog and comment, so I usually do it. I hope they will heed your advice!!!

Alycia Nichols said...

You and that paint brush!!!! Honest to goodness, I wish I had that kind of patience to just paint at will!!! There are so many rooms in our home that I would love to switch up, but I have to always get bids and then wait for someone to do it. I've painted plenty before, but I've gotten a little too broken down body-wise now for it. I just love it that you tackle the job head on!!! Everything is looking beautiful!!!

I don't think I'm a no-reply blogger. I'm on WordPress, so it's hard to tell. I always leave both my email and blog addresses on those sites that have those options. On yours, I think I click the 1st option which has my name and then (Google) next to it, so I assume it provides my Gmail address? I'm like you...I like to be able to acknowledge the kindness when folks stop by and say hello. I figure it's the very least I can do!

Enjoy the day!

A great solution to the paint by adding the white...I have some leftover paint that I think I will be doing the same to...I am not a no-reply blogger...and yes, it is frustrating at best! Love all of your colors! said...

The rooms are all beautiful, nothing is better than freshly painted walls! Thanks for the info on no reply bloggers, I have been told that I am a no reply blogger but I use wordpress so it only happens on some blogger sites. I read the info and think I fixed it, thanks so much!

I had no idea about "No Reply Blogger" status. Thank you so much for this post! I changed my settings immediately and just received the following email from one of my favorite bloggers: "YAY i can reply to you now!!!!! wahoo!!!!" :)

I love the neutral palette of your home, Cindy. It's a very inviting tone, and it made your house feel more homey. Plus, the color you picked definitely compliments the sets of furniture you already have. So, that was really a good pick. Thanks for sharing that! All the best! :)
