Hey guys, I have so many fun house updates coming to the blog soon, but I’m waiting on some deliveries to arrive. Anyone else completely stalk their online purchases? Since I can’t share the stuff for my own house while it’s making it’s way to me on a blessed brown truck with my saint of a UPS man, I thought we would pop back over to my parent’s house today and share the Coastal Paint Colors we used throughout their home renovation. It’s always nice to see all the colors in one spot and see how they all flow together, so I put this little graphic together for you.
Here are the brands of each individual paint color.
- Sherwin Williams Topsail
- Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue
- Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray
- Sherwin Williams Natural Choice
- Sherwin Williams Watery
- Sherwin Williams Extra White
Also, I know some of the colors you haven’t seen yet, but we are taking the kids for a visit next week for spring break! I shipped my tripod down, so new photos and posts will be coming soon. I’ll break it down here on the next image so you can see where we used what.
I’ll link to each post here so you can see the colors in action too (I’ll come back and edit this post when I have every thing shot).

Picking paint colors can be SO tricky, but my biggest advice when you are planning an entire color scheme for a house is to look at all of the colors together. They don’t necessarily need to all match, especially if they are on different floors, but there still should be a sense of flow to all of the colors.
Oh, and a little note on sheen. I get lots of questions about this, so I will throw my 2 cents in here. In our own home and in my parent’s home all of the trim and cabinets are painted in satin sheen. I just like the more casual softer look of that as opposed to semi gloss and it still cleans up easily.
All of the actual walls were done in a matte paint. Some people are scared this will be hard to clean with kids, but if you use a high quality paint and let it cure properly (my painter said not to scrub walls for at least 30 days so the paint can really cure), I gently take a magic eraser to my walls with no problems.
Let me know if you have any other paint questions, I’m happy to help!
