Atlanta Apartment Planning - Entry Paint Picks

I’ve been researching the perfect paint color to highlight our dreamy new Wisteria lucite console in our entry and thought I’d share my scheming (mostly pretty pics) with you. 


Whenever I’m working with a new paint hue I like to peruse Pinterest and Google spaces that feature the color I’m contemplating. This method is only to narrow down my options – one cannot assume (especially on a computer monitor) that the color will read the same in your own home. I’ll still purchase sample pints but I have found this method to help me be more efficient in my search.

I really love this color that Caitlin Wilson used for her entry, Benjamin Moore’s Key Largo green. I actually worked for Caitlin at the time and saw this space in person – it’s such a happy hue! It may be just a touch too minty for me though.


After much hunting I thought more of a Tiffany Blue would be pretty and I stumbled upon this beautiful bath by Ann Forkum, the color is Benjamin Moore’s Spirit in the Sky:


I found this playroom via House of Turquoise painted in the shade and really like it (if you are a Turquoise fan you'll love Erin's blog!):


When I look at the color on the swatch it looks considerably more gray to me then it does in the photos and I’m OK with that as I think blues can easily look too youthful or sweet.

I plan on trying both Key Largo and Spirit in the sky this weekend – wish me luck & stay tuned for the adjoining dining area plans next week!
