What a title! A Passion Fruit family room – you just have to love the name of this paint color!
My family room has really been a work in progress since we purchased our home 8 years ago. We replaced the floors and I whitewashed the brick and that really brightened and opened it up. I originally painted the room in a subtle, light yellowy/cream but it wasn’t doing it for me any longer. The room has one wall that is entirely fireplace, one wall that has a large window and french doors, and one wall that opens into the kitchen. It really only leaves one large wall of pure color. This makes it the perfect room to add a true pop of color that won’t overwhelm the space as it is so broken up.
I decided on Benjamin Moore Passion Fruit. I have my own BM paint fan and always take it with me to Home Depot and have them mix the BM color in their Behr Paint and Primer in One. It’s less expensive and great quality. Honestly, when I opened the can I was quite apprehensive! I know that the color dries darker than the paint in the can and continued. So happy with the result!I’m happy with how it ties in with the blue/grey in our kitchen. The deeper color actually complements the cooler kitchen color. I want to paint the paneling over the mantel in a brighter white that will tie in better with the Passion Fruit. I’ve been contemplating purchasing a sectional sofa but after listening to your comments and careful consideration, I am now leaning against it. I think two matching, comfy chairs will work better in the space. They should make the finishing touch!
