My Favorite Colors for Spring 2012

Whether painting or adding a few new accessories or furniture, color is important to bring life into any space.

Now that the long, drear days of winter are over, Spring is the perfect time of year to paint those beige walls and/or take a risk by buying that bright orange or yellow platter or vase that you’ve had your eye on for months!  You can never go wrong with a splash of color.

My two favorite go-to paint lines are Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.  Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of other paint lines that I use and feel are a good quality, but there is just something about BM and SW that I keep going back to time and time again.  So it seemed most appropriate for me to share my favorite colors by my favorite lines.  These are not new colors for the season, but hues that I’ve chosen and are drawn to for Spring 2012!

    Jenna: You’ve mislabeled the second set of colors! Should be SW… just fyi!
