Gray Painted Island

Is your kitchen white, bland and boring? Updating hardware can help and give it an instant facelift, but so can painting out your kitchen island in a gray tone. You probably notice it happening a lot in kitchen design these days, because it really does add a lot of style to a kitchen.Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 3.39.37 AMTry CSP-45 Street Chic by Benjamin Moore

The Victorian also has a gray island in the kitchen, that contrast with the stark white wall cabinets. The gray exterior paint, and the island paint are the same color: C2's  Titanium, but with different percentages.

Kids Will Be Kids

There is a whole new trend in playrooms and they aren’t painted in primary colours. These rooms have inspirational words and fun added touches, they can be easily transformed back into any type of space when kids outgrow them.

CC-500This playroom is in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-500 Ranchwood, it is a neutral taupe that will flow with most colour schemes.

Use natural elements like sisal, wood and metal to give texture and interest. Who doesn’t want a tipi in their play room?

PLAY.

2122-40This playroom feature wall has useful built-in storage and a dark wood accent wall, creating somewhat of a media section.

The baskets on the lower shelves are painted in Benjamin Moore’s 2122-40 Smoke and stencilled in white numbers. They could be painted in multiple colours, even if only in the gray tones. Tester pots are the perfect paint size for projects like this.

ADVENTURE.

CC-756These built-in’s are great for storage and the design would work for most rooms, all you need to do is add a fun rug, table/chairs and a chalkboard and you have a little class room to play. This room is painted in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-765 Avalon.

10 Ways To Dress A Hallway

Hallways are often overlooked and seem to be the last place people are willing to decorate. 

If we think about what hallways are, they are really just an area in a building or home onto which rooms open…like a corridor of doors. What do you do on the walls? Art? Photo Gallery? What is the right solution for such an awkard space?

We have you covered! Below are 10 Hallways that maximize space and look amazing…

This hallway is styled to perfection, we love the gallery wall of photos and the vignette area with dresser, mirror and rug. Fresh flowers and books are always a welcoming touch if the hallway leads to your foyer.

Black or charcoal gray paint colours really pop against the white doors and trim, this look is so elgant you don’t need much artwork. The cowhide mosaic rug is a nice piece to bring all of the colours together. A black and white fabric pattern works well too.

The eye is leading directly to this dark wall at the end of the hallway, it distracts from the light taupe wall colour that almost blends in with the doors. The casual carpet runner gentle leads the eye to the photo gallery. A great place to present your favourite family photos.

This modern hallway is more of a gallery style, photos hung low with large matting and gold pendant lights hanging to light the space…simple and stylish!

Runners can be bold and their pattern might be enough to decorate the whole hallway, this soft wall colour and doors/trim combination looks amazing paired with this tribal carpet runner.

A lot of us have laundry upstairs or have a closet we dream of moving it to. This barn door painted in a light blue really makes this hallway unique and hides the laundry perfectly.

If we don’t have a linen closet in the hallway, why not create one with an old narrow armoire or glass door cabinet.

Some people enjoy putting wainscotting or a chair rail up on the bottom of the wall, this allows you to paint it out with trim paint to match all of the doors. It really makes the walls pop on the top half, the perfect compromise to a brighter colour.

This hallway is classic and has a warm cozy glow to it, from elegant sconces to lit artwork. The shelves create an interesting area with books, boxes and accessories collected from travels.

FURNITURE & ACCESSORIES

Not ready to paint the walls or prefer lighter tones, try to introduce your accent colours in chairs, art work, vases, area rugs or drapes.
