Hello Friends!  I'm so excited to introduce a new monthly series to you today called My Favorite Five!  Once again, I'm teaming up with my talented blog buddies-

Pam of Simple Details 

This series will replace our former monthly collaboration, Best of the Nest Link Party.  Every first Tuesday of each month we'll have a different theme to share our favorite things with you. 

We will also introduce you to a guest host each month, and we're honored to have Cassie from Primitive and Proper with us today.  Cassie is a long time blogger, savvy business woman, successful shop owner, avid DIYer, and definitely qualifies as an expert on paint!  Be sure to hop over and meet her if you're not friends yet.

For our first installment of this new series, we're sharing our five favorite paint colors with you today.  I'm sure my co-hosts would agree that one of the most frequent questions we're asked as home bloggers is about paint colors.  Here are my top 5 go-to colors I use in my home.

Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams

I've painted all of my interior doors in the common areas of the house Tricorn Black, and I love the drama they add!

This is such a great charcoal.  It looks different depending on the lighting and time of day.  I just finished a big project with this one!

I tried no less than 10 different samples of gray for our Master Bedroom.  This one was perfect in our lighting- no blue, green, or purple tint to it.

  1. Urbane Bronze is one of my FAVORITE colors! I love how you have used it. I also love your interior doors. I believe that painting them black will be a 2016 project at my house.
