We previously painted this home owners house. They hired us again to paint the condo they were downsizing into. The entire condo was originally one colour. All the walls, trim work and doors were the same golden-green. The owner found it too monotone and somewhat lifeless.
We repainted the walls in a colour called Grant Beige. It could be described as a neutral beige with a slight hint of gray. When picking a colour for the trim work we took into consideration that the vinyl windows were almond. If we used white it would be too stark for the warmth in the floors and cabinets and would have clashed with the almond colour windows. It may look white in the photos, but the trim colour we used is a very light beige.
It took three coats of paint to change the doors and trim from the original green colour to the new off-white, but it was well worth the effort. Our client is much happier with the look of their condo.
The first four photos immediately below show the difference between the mono toned walls, doors and trim work and the new look with the doors and trim work painted in off-white.
