While celebrating Easter in Northern Virginia, my parents dropped a copy of The Washington Post in my lap that featured a BIG collection of articles on the blog world’s recent love affair with paint color. Blogs? Paint? Yes please.
The lead article focuses on two colorful blogs. (And no, Young House Love wasn’t one of them- but you can read about our own adventures in wall color selection here.) The first blog, Color For Your Home, is authored by several home color experts who dispense rules, tips and even personalized advice about color selection for the interior and exterior of your home. The second blog, Hue, is less about what to put on your walls and more about color’s impact on our lives – from what products we buy to, well okay, what we paint our walls. Both are definitely worth a look.
But back to the Washington Post feature. While there, be sure to check out all the items grouped under this story. You’ll find some pretty useful paint info including the difference between “eggshell” “satin” and all those other finishes, how to steer clear of an ugly exterior paint job and required reading for the paint enthusiast.
Our favorite feature, though, was the list of designer’s favorite paint colors. Can’t say I’d let all of these guys pick paint for my house (can a person who loves “Nacho Cheese” paint really call himself a designer?), but it’s always fun to see what the experts have to say. You can click here for the full graphic.
