I have to put my 2 cents in.., I've been a professional painter for 21 years now and we focus on what I call custom repaints. Our clientele homes are between 500k-2 million range. I also have to chuckle when I hear that the most expensive paints are the best. I've used almost every line of every brand and have tallied my own results that combined with feedback from past clients on the proformance over the years with their paint. Also I have had many homes and now live in an expensive one with a couple young kids. That all being said, Behr interior paints are some of the best and at a great price. Consumer Reports rates them #1 consistently and guess what #2 is Aura from Ben Moore at twice the price. Doesn't make sense to me except that in our industry we say that "people drink the Ben Moore kool aid." They have great advertising and going right to the source, the decorators. They do have the best color selection so I tell my clients to pick their colors and we will match them in Behr. Getting them properly matched is where I come in. I haven't had a single complaint about Behr and we paint in about 350 homes a year.
Also a good flat is scrubbable and touches up fantastic! Happy painting.

I painted for 14+ years in Newport beach, Laguna and irvine area and all we used was Dunn Edwards. The man who bought that business from me has since told me the brand is going down in quality as of late. Is that true.? Just curious. Everyone is entitled to their professional opinion but I think sometimes if you're not used to a product and are not willing to stick with it through you're own learning curve I can see how it would be frustrating, especially for do it yourself-ers. I have had The original Behr flat paints painted on my walls for 7 years. I can wash most marks off without removing paint and cannot see my touch ups. What else can you ask for in a paint. I agree with using a quality flat or eggshell too. My company now in Austin has been painting a thousand homes now in 6+ years and not a single complaint. I do use the Ultra Behr on exteriors and sometimes interiors. The new Behr Marquis is awesome but a bit pricier but well under its peers with SW and Ben.
Idimaio those are nice options but $$

Yes hint to do it yourself types: use a empty 5 gallon bucket, a bucket Grid,, Sherlock roller frame and a quality lambs wool roller cover and a nice brush. Cost a little more up front but it will make your life easier!

TURNED IN TO A…FINE ART

Hobbit
Homes

Wherein

Gnomes,

And
Teepees,

Tents of many sizes,

Early,

Porches

An evening’s breeze.

Of summer,

For

The young at heart.

Dare to Go Gray in the Garden

Use neutral gray as a soother, a buffer and a framework for plants in many colors Full Story

I love grey in the garden as well. Though I was thinking the grey palette made the green of the plants pop more not mellowing them out. Grey also looks sophisticated.

I used a deep, charcoal-y gray on my backyard fence. The fence disappears and the plants zing out. My multi-trunk crepe myrtle with their pale trunks are spectacular against the charcoal.
