Sara McLean Hi Heather-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. To make your classic Georgian stand out, I suggest playing with the accent colors on your shutters & front door. Instead of classic dark greens, black, white and red, test out brighter blues, charcoal grays and even burnt orange. To change the body color, test out sage greens and warm grays - updated from classic silver grays, whites and browns. If these sound like potential options for you, check back & I'll select color options. Happy painting! READ MORE
Sara McLean Hi Preeti-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. Let's start you out with some lighter warm neutrals to test. Your cabinets and granite have warm tones to them so these colors will work great as base color options and also complement a lot of future accent colors you may want to tie in: DE6156 Marble Dust, DE6142 Floating Feather, DE6170 Rice Bowl, DE6198 Cream Wave. Happy painting! READ MORE
