FAQ

Hey all! So I get emailed a LOT of questions about where I have bought various things, paint colors, and such.  I must admit I’m not the best at returning emails right away!  I tend to stockpile them for a week or so and then sit down with some coffee for a marathon email session.

SO in case you need immediate answers to your burning questions I’m answering the most frequently asked ones here.  I’ll try to keep updating as I get them :)

WHAT COLOR PAINT DID YOU USE?

I have a handy dandy post all about the paint colors in my house, you can find them all HERE

with the exception that I recently painted my living room Brittany Blue instead of the old Santorini Blue.  I’ll be updating that post soon too.

WHERE DID YOU BUY YOUR COUCHES?

Unfortunately I bought them at a random clearance center about 7 years ago when we lived in Des Moines, IA there aren’t even any tags or helpful info on them.  You can try PB for similar styles or sometimes Joss and Main sells a really similar one for a good price as well.

HOW TO YOU KEEP WHITE COUCHES WHITE?

The truth – they are mostly white still :) I have them steam cleaned about once a year and they look brand new again.  I can’t believe how well they have held up considering how inexpensive they are.  Another tip – they started getting saggy so I added some cotton batting to the saggy parts and they look perfect again.

WHERE DID YOU BUY YOU LEATHER OTTOMAN?

Again random clearance sale…don’t hate me :) PB has a really similar albeit pricey version.

WHAT IS YOUR SIDING COLOR?

I can finally answer this, because I had paint color matched to it, the closet paint I could get was Antique Pewter by Benjamin Moore.

WHAT COLOR/TYPE OF WOOD FLOORING DO YOU HAVE?

They are Casabella Asian Walnut Antique Handscraped although I will say I hate these floors with little kids, every single crumb shows! I would so recommend lighter floors if you have small kids in the house, that said they are gorgeous when they are clean, for about 5 minutes!
