Foyer Update: Choosing a Paint Color

The foyer chest have been painted and they look awesome! So, the next thing on my to do list was to paint the foyer. I mulled over paint swatches for several days and came up with zilch. Since paint was going to play a major role in this project, I needed to find the perfect paint color ASAP! So I decided to go in search of some paintspiration. ( Don't laugh I just made that word up and it will be in the dictionary one day!) So I jumped into my Tucson and headed to the Home Depot.  I immediately went to the paint section. I started pulling out paint chips one by one. Nope, nope, nope, that's not the color, so I kept pulling. Low and behold I pulled out this Amazing color. Bare with me, the theme song from "Hawaii five 0" is playing in my head. And I hear Steve McGarrett saying, "Book him Danno." Okay, I've kept you in suspense long enough. The name of the color is Island Oasis by Behr. And it sums up the style that I am creating in our home. Is that a coincidence or what? I love the island beachy feel of this color, and I can't wait to share the reveal.                           
               

Paint colors look different on monitors. Paint chips and samples give a true representation of the color.
 

  
 
  Just in case you're wondering, I used the paint and primer in one and it turned out Great!
  Gotta run I have several things to do before the big reveal.

***I don't know anyone at the Behr Corporation. However, I have been using their paint for the past 15 years and I love it!
