  12. Love your beautiful home! Could you tell me what paint color is in your living room? Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    • Thanks, Maryn! Sure… the color is Glidden Palm Springs Tan. I normally use Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams, but our builder required us to choose a Glidden color, and it turned out fine!
