The four final colors:
Benjamin Moore's White Dove, Wythe Blue, Grant Beige & Texas Leather
You'll notice in the color mix that one of the colors is called "Texas Leather"... now, in all honesty I was debating about which dark color to go with and it all came down to the name. Since I'm now a Texan (does living here for two months qualify me to be a Texan?), I had to go with the Texas name! Who could pass that up?
And, of course I added one more color to the palette - Royal Fuchsia from Benjamin Moore. If you know me, then you know that I love to add a little pink (and then a little more) in my house.... so, this deep-colored pink will be popping up in a quite a few places (like it did here in this house). Whether it's paint on a chair, fabric on a pillow, or a rug on the floor, there will definitely be some Royal Fuchsia going on in this house...

There will also be a few surprises on the walls, like good ol' chalkboard paint from Hudson. The kids playroom wouldn't be complete without a big dose of this on the wall, and the fact that this chalkboard paint comes with a choice of 24 colors, makes them amazing... AMAZING!
And... a little stenciling, my new favorite! Something like this, from Cutting Edge Stencils, will likely be a project for a wall or walls once we move in the house. Think metallic trellis... gorgeousness!
So, what's the paint palette look like in your house, any surprises?
