Cindy from Miami contacted me to help her choose colours for her kitchen cabinets in her weekend home in the Florida Keys (I am virtually in Florida a lot, and it is a colourful place!). Their beach house overlooks John Pennekamp State Park which contains the only living coral reef park in North America. I thought the exterior was so pretty I asked if I could share the colour with you and here it is along with the views from her weekend home.

Cindy chose Benjamin Moore ‘White Dove’ for the entire interior (below) and this was her inspiration photo. However the Carrara is much whiter and grayer than the creamy cabinets pictured above. The reason why it works in this case is because the white is repeated in the subway tile and the cabinet colour extends into the walls and ceilings. If the backsplash was cream as well the Carrara would look totally out of place. Personally, I think even ‘Cloud White’ is too creamy for Carrara countertops.
Love this floor she chose, very beachy and timeless in my opinion.
Now that exterior season is officially here, I have a few more exteriors from last year that I’ll post as well to help you choose your colours! If you are painting your house this year, make sure you read this post to get the scoop on testing your colours accurately and you can always contact me for an on-line consultation if you get stuck.
If you are painting your exterior this year, which colour will you choose?
