Dining Nook Update with BEHR®

West Village, NY

It’s always fun to update your home.  There are so many easy ways to improve the look of a space – whether it’s with a piece of art, a rug, a throw pillow, or a fresh coat of paint.  When BEHR® reached out wanting to collaborate around their best selling BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Interior Paint & Primer I jumped at the opportunity.  I’ve been wanting to update my dining nook for a while, but didn’t want to do anything too drastic since I love how light and airy the space feels.  BEHR’s “Close Knit” paint was the perfect shade of light grey and two coats of it was just enough to make the nook really pop.  It’s elegant and subtle.  My favorite thing about the paint besides the fact that it didn’t leave behind a strong paint fume – the smell was completely gone in 2 hours.   Now that I’ve realized how easy it is to paint and see what a difference it makes – I’m already brainstorming my next project.  I plan on using BEHR’s PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® paint which is extra durable, resists stains/scuffs and can be tinted to over 2,000 colors or color match it to your perfect color.  It’s gonna be hard to choose one!  I am giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky reader, courtesy of BEHR®.  To enter for a chance to win, simply share what home project you’re excited to work on next and how you could use BEHR® paint!  What color would you choose?!  Tell me here!

    Your apartment is just dreamy, I am going to take some serious inspiration from this for my own. What a lovely little nook you’ve put together (in NYC, you really have to make every square inch count)!

    Grey is one of my favorite colors so any shade of it is beautiful to me! I must say that this shade is just beautiful, airy, fresh and elegant, Kat! May I ask what the square footage of your home is?

      Hi! I don’t know the exact square footage but it was a 2 bedroom apartment in the West Village!

    My next project is remodeling my bathroom. I don’t know what paint color I want yet. I need to pick a theme. Maybe something to match a seashell/lighthouse theme.

    We just finished converting part of the garage into an office/laundry room and giving my oldest her own room in the old office. We actually bought Behr paint for both rooms and are thrilled with the results! My next project is painting my dining/living room, as it’s a horrible brown & white speckle that’s was there when we moved in 3.5 years ago. I’m ready for it to be a much lighter shade- possibly an eggshell. I’ll definitely be using Behr paint again when we do it.

    Love this! We are considering painting our baby girl’s room in this “close knit” color. We painted a swatch in the wall. I love it, though it’s a bit hard to tell with just the small sample. Did it read blue in your room? We are looking for a very very light gray. (I don’t mind if it has some blue undertones, but don’t want it to read as entirely baby blue.) Thank you so much!

      So exciting! It has some blue undertones, but the editing in this picture just makes it look more blue grey than it really is! :)
