going dark

well, i’ve decided to go dark…and i’m not talking about my hair color.  nope, i’m referring to my trim color.

i’ve been a fan of dark trim for a while and finally decided it was time to go dark myself.

my condo doesn’t get a lot of light so i didn’t want to go too dark.  i decided to go with a smoky bronze color from sherwin williams called “brainstorm bronze.” 

scan0001editi absolutely love it!  i can’t wait until the whole place is done.  i’m painting my entry hallway and side hallway, the main room (family/dining combined) and my kitchen.  I’m keeping my bathroom, guest room and master the existing paint color, benjamin moore’s white dove.  since i’m painting it myself it’s going to be a while before it’s complete.  i’m focusing on one area at a time…as time permits.  right now i have the entry hallway completed except for the crown.  here’s a sneak peek.

i’ve also been debating on painting my hardwood flooring that runs throughout my entry hallway, main hallway and kitchen.  this picture has made up my mind.  i’m DEFINITELY painting it.  camilla just painted her kitchen floors a beautiful turquoise shade and gives a great step-by-step tutorial.  although i would love to, i’m not going as bold as she did.  i’m thinking of staying more neutral and going with a medium gray, something that is in between the color of the wall and the trim.
