The original painting was not done well in some areas of this home. It’s only had one paint job and some of the walls felt rough so our guess is that the sanding was not adequately done after the drywall was primed. In addition the paint was applied far too heavy in the tall entry and hallway, perhaps in an attempt to do only one coat. This left excessive texture, rolling irregularities and paint sagging. We spent hours sanding down the walls to smooth them out before re-painting.
The large open concept living space was originally painted taupe with several darker green accent walls. The clients had us re-paint with Balboa Mist. It’s one of Benjamin Moore’s go-to neutrals and considered a pale greige. Greige colours have been a popular choice over the last few years as homeowners have wanted to transition out of the gray trend and into something more timeless and warm. Balboa Mist amplifies the light well in this large open space giving it a light and airy feeling.
