Its been too long, just over here working away and enjoying life with my family. Recently we purchased our first home and we love it so much! Its crazy how much space we have now and we have just begun to really start making this space our own. I couldn’t wait to have a home so I could decorate a space with confidence knowing we wouldn’t move a year later.
Recently we were given the opportunity to work with Dunn-Edwards Paints and this opportunity has been such a dream. My Father has been a painting contractor since his early 20’s and anytime I hear about a project involving or the smell fresh paint it makes me giddy thinking of my childhood. My dad would come home in his white painting paints and white short sleeved shirt with little splatters and drips of paint on his knees, shoes, elbows and hair. I always loved seeing all the different colors he had worked with on his “uniform.”
Another favorite memory with my dad were long drives looking at his paint swatch booklet and imagining all the projects I could think that would work with each color, or pairing colors to see what odd but equally beautiful combinations I could come up with. when I went into Dunn-Edwards Paints to finalize my project I met with Caitlyn the stores Professional Color Advisor to help me determine the right colors and amount of paint needed for my project. Caitlyn not only helped me with details for this project but also helped me with other rooms in my house just based of pictures I brought in of each space. I was so impressed that she knew what I was going for and I even went home with FREE samples to try just to make sure. Make sure to get your FREE sample here, I can’t wait to show you wha I was able to do with one sample in another post.
Dunn-Edwards has just short of 2,000 in their Perfect Palette System, because of this I was so thankful for the PCA’s help. It only took us about 15 minutes to determine the colors I wanted for 3 separate rooms and her professional help was free. I love that Dunn-Edwards offers FREE consultations with the PCA, without her help I would have been lost in the Rainbow.
I was a little nervous right before I went into my consultation because I changed my mind as to which room I would be transforming with color. I decided to do our little girls room. What made me most nervous is the toxins that she would breath in days after the paint dried because it was still fresh. My PCA told me about Dunn-Edwards GREEN LEGACY and my concerns were gone. In 1983 Dunn-Edwards reformulated their paints to contain a non-toxic alternative to Ethylene Glycol. There is virtually no odor after painting. Dunn-Edwards Paints are of the highest quality ingredients and pigment.
A little bit more as to why I chose to decorate the way we did! If you know Aiva she is one spunky little doll! She lives in the moment. Her imagination and creations are centered around rainbows, unicorns, princesses, glitter, pink, tiny trinkets and clouds. My goal for her room was to be all the things found in her dreams. The sky doesn’t have to be blue it can have a touch of green. Her room is far from being finished but I can’t wait to share this little slice of our home!
Alright here it is! This is just the first of many home decor and paint creations to hit the blog.
