Joanro, I do indeed agree with your taste. I can see much pleasure in doing business in those surroundings. That blue is a moneymaker!

by joanro on 21 November 2018 - 02:11

All right! So, how do we get the money?!

Joanro! You have been an entrepreneur your whole life! Let me know if you have a new venture that needs an πŸ˜‡ angel.

Joanro~ I really like the blue walls with the dark color wood! That’s just about what I would do in my own home! Looks marvelous!

No!!! Eggshell walls, semi-gloss trim.
Eggshell does hide imperfections and is still washable. Flat is what builders push because it hides almost everything. Semi-gloss shows everything, and if you want to patch something, you basically have to paint the whole wall, because you can see where it was patched.

Hey... you are or will be moving ... so relax, go with the program..... but when or if you know you are going to stay... for awhile, in a house or home ... lol.( 25 years and counting!) you will learn the wisdom of semi gloss walls and gloss trim!

I’ve got to ageee with Vito here !
Eggshell walls look soft and elegant!
Too much reflection with semi gloss!
Semi gloss highlights the trim and looks very fashionable!
When I had toddlers I thought I needed semigloss, but in truth it just  magnified the little finger smudges!

Google it ,..😊

I don’t need to Google it! I know what the mainstream promotes. It works, no doubt, but not for all outcomes. Consider that, and then one will know not to be discouraged with an alternate sense of style.

Here is a good guide to paint finishes and when one might want to use them.

I definitely like the satin finish and gloss trim for the kitchen/great room areas. Of course, what you love is what you should live with in your own home!
