Interior Paint Colors

It was a very busy week with the house last week.  We had an electrical walk-through on Tuesday and a design meeting on Thursday.  We selected our interior paint colors in the Thursday meeting.  We love the builders we chose, May River Custom Homes:  They are doing such a great job.  They are a husband and wife team (about our age), and the wife is a designer who studied at SCAD.  She has been such a wonderful help with finishes, paint colors and design selections.  Here are the paint colors:

In the main living area, foyer, kitchen, dining area, hallways (open floor plan) and garage we will have Benjamin Moore (BM) Edgecomb Gray, HC-173:

In the Office we will have BM Revere Pewter, HC-172, which is one shade darker than Edgecomb Gray.  Most people probably will not even be able to tell the difference between the two shades, but it will add a slight definition as you pass from one room to the next.  (Ignore the writing on the paint swatch.  I wanted them to all look the same, and this is the one I found online).  :)

In the bedrooms (Master, Emerson's and Guest) and closets we will have BM White Dove, OC-17:

The bathrooms (Master, Guest, Emerson's and Powder) and laundry room will be BM Woodlawn Blue, HC-147:

The ceilings will be BM White Dove flat and the trim will be BM White Dove semi gloss.

We are so excited to see all of the progress on our house, and we cannot wait to move in!!  Sign up now to come visit and stay in our guest room.  :)

Friday progress!

We have had lots of action on the house this week, but it is the kind of action that is difficult to capture via camera. The electricity is run throughout the house. They ductwork and furnace are installed. The rough-in plumbing fixtures are being installed, and the roofing and siding are in progress. We had lots of meetings this week, picked paint colors and got the final details squared away!!  So ready to be in this amazing house!!
