From a white to a warm wall!

From a white to a warm wall!

Posted on: 10-06-2020
About a year ago, we painted the entire ground floor of our first home with Pure & Original paint. The living room was given the colour Sahara Dust in Classico chalk paint, the hallway was painted with chalk paint in the colour Skin PowderSkin Powder and Ashes and the bedroom we painted with Fresco lime paint in the colour Steel BlueSteel Blue.


Last time it worked very well with the paint from Pure & Original and because our top floor was still dull white it was time for a tan, again from Pure & Original! Starting at the upstairs hallway. I also have all kinds of ideas about the rest of the rooms upstairs but that will come later.

Chalky Coral for a warm atmosphere

Because we like our hallway downstairs in the colour Skin Powder, I wanted to go for a warm color that would complement this beautifully because the stairs to the upper floor connect to this hallway. I discovered the colour Chalky CoralChalky Coral, a wonderful and warm colour that goes very well with Skin Powder.

Time to paint the hallway upstairs!

The choice for the colour was made, we chose Chalky CoralCoral. We still doubted whether we would also take the sloping ceiling above the stairs down, but in the end we chose to do so and we are very happy with it.

The nice thing about the paint is, besides the mattness, how it spreads on the wall, after 1 layer you can still have some stripes, but if you go over it a second time, they all disappear. There is really a depth in the paint that gives the whole a very nice look and looks like you had it painted by a professional.

The colour of the paint changes by the influence of light

We are very happy with the end result! As expected, the colour matches the Skin Powder colour in the hallway downstairs. The colour also changes from light to dark with the incidence of light.
