bedroom neutral paint suggestions?


Hi Jennifer...the first contractor (if you can call him that) on my fixer upper house used Behr on my living room and the majority of the outside 4 years ago and it is still holding up fine. My late husband and I always used Sherwin Williams in my previous town and the guys were great. I use them now because the staff is so helpful-they'll remix, remix until you get a color you like. They are also much better resources than some staff members of HD if you have questions about which primer to use, etc. My more recent contractor also said it's better paint. They also have brochures with pictures of rooms with various wall and trim colors that could give you ideas.

Good luck. Gotta get back to my project of sanding.

It's been a couple of years, but if I'm not mistaken, that's MAB Rich-Lux Eggshell in a Finnaren & Haley color Arizona White. MAB is a large local company now owned by SW and F & H is, was, a small local company purchased by BM, run for a time as Haley Paint, and then dissolved.
The major paint stores have excellent color booklets that give advice/samples of using color combinations.
Where are you from and what choices are available to you?
