FIFTY SHADES OF...WHITE?! OUR GUIDE TO FINDING THE PERFECT SHADE OF WHITE PAINT

Paige Hull

It’s no secret that Smoot and I love designing with white paint. While white can seem like a no-brainer, there are actually hundreds of paint shades available--each with its own subtle variation in undertone. Pure white has no hue and reflects all visible wavelengths of light, so white paint will be very “reactive” to its environment. Now that we’ve completed four cottages with white interior paint, we want to share a few of the things we’ve learned along the way. Read on to learn our tips for choosing the perfect white for your space!

BOHO COLLABORATION: FORREST MIDDELTON

Paige Hull

Today we're sharing our collaboration with Forrest Middleton, a mastermind potter, tile maker and educator who lives in Petaluma, California. We worked with Forrest to find the most beautiful, unique tile for our bathrooms in the Boho cottage. We originally found Forrest's work through Cle Tile, and now Forrest has begun to sell directly through his website.

MODERN VINTAGE STYLE - HOME EXTERIOR

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

As I'm sure you've heard/seen by now, we re-painted the exterior of the house from blue to Nordic black! We gave a little sneak peek back in February, but today we're posting additional photos and giving a little more background into the Modern Vintage Style choice. If you haven't yet, you can read more about my family's Scandinavian heritage and how that played into our black color choice in our Sneak Peek post.

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

There are about a million different shades of black, so it's always hard to make a choice. Especially when so many are just ever so slightly different. But, we ended up picking this particular shade, which is Valspar Lincoln Cottage. We liked that is was a true black, and did not have overt purple or blue undertones. We felt like it paired best with the white trim and stained wood.

Along with picking the color, we also had to pick a finish. From flat to eggshell and satin to gloss, there are so many choices and things to think about when choosing a finish. We decided to go with the satin finish because it gives the black a silky quality and it's much more durable than flat. And we feel that the satin finish matched the Modern Vintage Style the best.

We loved the idea of black and white, not only because of my Scandinavian heritage, but also because it is very clean and modern. We added the stained wood for warmth and interest. We couldn't be happier with the outcome.

MODERN VINTAGE TRENDS - NEW COTTAGE SNEAK PEEK PART 1

Paige Hull

We spent the day in Round Top with stylist and decorator Becki Griffin of Curious Details, and designer Holly Mathis of Holly Mathis Interiors.  Smoot and I walked them through the selections we've made for the new cottage and event space.

We set up vignettes in each room to represent the colors. style, and materials we've chosen. What a blessing it was to have these two over-the-top talented friends come by to spend the day with us.

The two Instagram posts above show a sneak peek of one of the bathroom's selections. The Moroccan tile is from Cle' Tile out of Los Angeles, and the lovely faucet is from Galveston Architectural Salvage Warehouse - yes, it's worth the drive!  

We're excited to be getting to this point in the project. There are so many details to think about and to coordinate. Seeing them all come together is a dream come true!
