I have come to realize that most of the images I have pinned as inspiration are light and bright so clearly I tend to gravitate that way, but our house does not reflect that at all. I've gradually been working on brightening our house by painting over the dark tan color the previous owner had chosen for the entire house. It wasn't a bad color, it just felt dark and heavy, especially since a lot of our furniture is darker. You can see what our previous color looks like in our House Tour video.
By the time I get all of our walls painted, I will have a total of 6 different colors to keep up with. I've decided to write the name of the paint color on a piece of tape (I choose pretty decorative scotch tape, but masking or painters tape would work as well) and place it on the inside of the light switch plate in that room. No one will know it's there except for me, and if I forget what color it is, I know exactly where to look to find out.
And, for those who are interested, here is the color scheme I am going with for our house.
a. Benjamin Morre Quiet Moments
(Glidden Gentle Tide is discontinued, but Quiet Momements is a close match)
b. Benjamin Moore Gray Owl
c. Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
d. Benjamin Moore Camouflage
e. Benjamin Moore Simple White
f. Benjamin Moore Wedgewood Gray
