Paint Colors

Keep in mind that these photos are NOT of my house.  hahaha.  It will be a while before we are painting the walls.  However, I did select the paint colors from Sherwin Williams the other day.  So, I wanted to share my choices.  I really think they are going to work really well!  What do you think?

  This one is my favorite! This color is called  Restrained Gold.  It will be going everywhere downstairs in our house.  The dining room is going to have a chair rail and I plan on painting  the lower half of the walls some variation of a chocolate brown.  But..other than that little bit, everything downstairs will be this color.  I will probably paint the powder room a different color eventually, too.  In such a little room like a powder room, I think I would prefer to have a brighter color. 

The photo above is the color that I chose to go upstairs in our house.  It is called Latte and will eventually be in our bonus room, extra bedrooms, laundry room and upstairs bathroom.  I may end up painting some of these rooms different colors in the future (you know, like for a nursery!), but I was only allowed to pick 3 colors for the whole house.  (or pay more $) So, I decided to go really neutral and then paint it later if I want.

Lastly, the bedroom above is Jubilee, the paint color that I selected for our master bedroom. I am not a huge fan of blue, but this is a very gray blue. I think it will look really nice with the tray ceiling in there.  I told them that I wanted the master bath painted this color too....but I'm not so sure anymore.  I might have them go more neutral in there so I don't have to worry about matching the tile with blue.

This is so funny - my entire downstairs is down with tan neutrals (like the shades you showed), and my bedroom is light blue (although I like your color better). Looks like it's gonna be awesome!
