Color Time - Benjamin Moore Merlot Red

This could be a telling sign, for the last few hours I have been searching for a happy spring like color for today's post but I keep coming back to "Merlot" Red. Maybe we should all pull a chair to this bar, end the work day a bit early and pour ourselves a glass! Want to join me? We can talk paint colors while we sip wine!

**Note: The above room is the actual paint color not just a resemblance of the color. As you can see above, the paint chip sample online looks different than what is in the actual room photo. When choosing paint for your own home never go by what you see online, the color will always be a tad different. I suggest picking up a small paint sample at the store and paint a color swatch in the actual room, than you will never be disappointed!

I could use Red Merlot in small doses. Your kitchen image is the perfect example and sipping wine in that kitchen would be twice as nice!
