My mother never worried about paint colors.
She only needed one; she was a white paint person.
When I was in high school, they built a large custom home of over 5K square feet,
and she had it painted white.....
every square inch of it.
Even the brick on the exterior!
If she were alive, she'd think that the stark white coat of primer
looks just fine the way it is....
Why even bother painting?!

Wouldn't she be surprised to know that BM now has over 140 shades of white?
However, I suspect that she wouldn't let the other 138 confuse her and she'd chose
plain old Bright White and Ceiling White as her color palette even today.
As for me, I'm narrowing down the list of candidates.
But did you know that there are over 3,500 colors of Benjamin Moore paint?
Joe thinks that I have chips and samples for almost half of them!
I'm not going to my mother's extreme,
but other than an accent wall or two
the house will be shades of sagey taupes, khaki and creams.
The brighter colors within will come via the tile and furnishings.
The zingiest of the tiles is in the laundry room. I wanted a happy room!
I may be washing clothes just to find an excuse to spend time with the tile!
