Caroline’s Ethereal Color Palette

December 17, 2019

I’m thrilled to share photos that Interior Designer Caroline Alberstadt just sent me of her project where she used my Full Spectrum Paints inside and out. Besides creating stunning spaces, Caroline and her associate Maggie Lambert put together a color palette to equal the ethereal setting of this newly constructed home.

The home was constructed by Waterfront Custom Homes of Vidalia, Louisiana. The body and trim are painted “Rainbow Fog” with “Sage” doors and “Ashen Green” shutters.
Porch ceiling is painted “Oasis”. All interior and exterior paints are Manor Hall by PPG Paint’s using my full spectrum formulas.
Main colors throughout the home’s interior are “Classic Cream” walls with “Perret Ivory” trim. All ceilings are “75% Classic Cream”.
The kitchen cabinets are painted “Putty”. Walls are the same “Classic Cream” with “Perret Ivory” trim. Although I retired “Perret Ivory” when I created the new palette, it’s still available and as you can see, works really well with the “Classic Cream”. Ceilings are “75% Classic Cream” since colors tend to look darker on ceilings.
The Master Bedroom walls are “Pumice” with “Perret Ivory” trim and “75% Classic Cream” on the ceiling. “Pumice” is one of my favorite complex neutrals because although I’d describe it as a warm gray, it’s very chameleon-like as you can see in the photos below.
Love the antique gold in the accessories—especially the Rebecca Vizard antique pillows!
Master Bath walls are also “Pumice” with the same “Perret Ivory” trim and “75% Classic Cream” ceilings. Cabinets are painted “Smoke”. The antique doors are from The Corbel.
Caroline had me create a full spectrum formula for Sherwin Williams’ “Intimate White” for the daughter’s bedroom and bath walls. In the bathroom we used “Barry’s White” on the trim and cabinets. This color is also available although it started as a custom color.
Last, but certainly not least is the Powder Room where the walls are “Peridot” high gloss with “Barry’s White” trim.

Caroline is going back to the project site today to take even more photos that I’ll be adding, so check back! If you’d like to see hand-painted samples of any of these colors, visit my Online Store where you can order free cuttings or larger hand-painted samples and jars.
