My Favorite Paint Color...

Melissa at 320 Sycamore is hosting a Paint Party today where everyone is linking up and sharing their favorite paint colors. I have been so excited to share my "secret" paint color, until Melissa shared it a couple of days ago as one of her favorites. Well,the fact that Melissa likes it just proves how great Monroe Bisque by Benjamin Moore really is! It is that perfect gold-khaki-neutral that is just warm enough and can be used everywhere. I used it all over the house, along with Quincy Tan (also by Benjamin Moore.) Here are a few pictures...

From the Living Room to the foyer, I used Monroe Bisque on the walls, and Quincy Tan below the chair rail.
In the Kitchen, I used Quincy Tan above the cabinets, and Monroe Bisque on the walls.
In the Family Room in the back of the bookshelves:

Dining Room:
Hallway:

When we bought this house, I was trying to spend every penny wisely, so I had EVERYTHING painted these colors because I could buy it in bulk and save a ton of money. I knew I loved them and they were nuetral but warm. I have lived with it for almost a year now, and we still like it. I hope if you choose to try it that you will love it too!

Now head on over to Melissa's paint party and get some inspiration. I can't wait to see everyone else's paint choices.
