Office Painting Underway

My Mom and I are hard at work making a major change to my office here at home.

After soliciting suggestions on Facebook and checking out all the different whites I'm using Benjamin Moore's Decorator White.

Goodbye yellow office. Bring on the white paint.

    The white looks great and you can even make paint tin photographs look artistic!

    I just painted my office/craft room earlier this month. It feels so good to get a new color on the walls and rearrange some of the wall hangings. It was the first time I ever painted a room from start to finish by myself. Enjoy!

      I had the same thought as we just finished our downstairs family room in yellow. I love it though! We are using tangerine and red and brights...it feels so alive! Change is GOOD!!

    Go Ali! I think you will find your space will feel bigger and brighter with the white paint. I went from a wood paneled 3rd fl room with sloped ceilings to a much smaller room but with two windows on the 2nd floor of our house and painted it the palest blush pink with pale grey trim...it's luminescent in the morning light !

    Have fun with your mom!!

    Hope you love it! Our entire house is BM Decorator's White and I couldn't be happier with it. Makes everything feel so bright and fresh and new (a hard task in my 100 year old home!).

      Hello Sabrina,

      we want to paint our whole house white too and I am wondering what color your trim and doors are. Are they decorator's white, too? Thanks, Birgit

    From previous photos I didn't realize just how yellow your walls were!
    I love painting and how it feels when something is freshly painted! Can't wait to see the finished product!

      It's been crazy to see just how dark of a yellow it was contrasted with the new white paint. It was getting hard to see the correct colors on my projects because of the overall yellow hue in the room.

    Ugh! I don't like to paint. But I like to have a fresh room. Have fun. I can see why you want the change. I had a bright yellow room once and liked it because it drew the light. Never thought about what it did to my color choosing for projects.

    Fresh coat of paint is always nice but why did you go with white?

      I love white. It's a nice crisp blank canvas for a room - but especially because it's a darker room (windows at one end) and I'm hoping this will brighten the space. The yellow made everything in the room have a yellow cast - hard to see what were the true colors of the things I work with everyday (papers, patterns, etc).

    Love it! I never noticed that that the ceiling was yellow in your office tour from last February. What a fresh start for 2012.
