Cake Batter



Today I chose the colour for the paint of my interior walls, Benjamin Moore's Cake Batter. I decided I would just use one colour throughout the entire main floor, including
bedrooms, bath, main entrance hall and kitchen/living area. I am still feeling a little unsure about the whole thing!!

But the show must go on!!!
 


I thought I would do a post on the feeling I hope the colour will bring to my new interiors, through a series of photos taken of my home last Christmas...it will never be like this again..
Hopefully this will be a good thing!
 


The colour Cake Batter, besides having a yummy name, is a very soft, milky colour with a lot of depth....
 


Because we live in the woods, the shadows and ombre effects played by the light filtering through the trees and coming in the windows, the paint changed colours almost by the hour after we applied a sample colour on the wall...
 


The vintage crochet lace on ecru linen I used as a cuff for this stocking last year, is a most perfect colour!
I used this as some what of a colour board for making my decision....
 


 


These German Belsnickles are also a good source of inspiration for colour matching...
 


Snowy branches and creamy hydrangeas.....
 


This sweet, tiny miniature doll held by an old world Santa, is the perfect creamy mix of froth and lace...
like frothed milk on a cappucino...
 

 


The stone tiles in the bathrooms, garden room and front entrance have a touch of grey in them...
I am hoping my tarnished brass fixtures and gilt mirror and sconces will work well with the Cake Batter....
 


We are so behind schedule, but the walls are being painted, as is the trim and new banister and spindles...I will be so happy to share this transformation with you as soon
as the kitchen is installed...this is the third postponement....originally end of October, then mid November and now mid December, if the floors are installed next week....

All of the interior trim is Cloud White and walls Cake Batter by Benjamin Moore.

Have any of you, my readers, used Cake Batter in your new or renovation projects??
I would love to hear your opinions...

The above photo more luscious colour.....

crochet cotton, old pearls and unspun wool, you get the picture...

The miniatures are the exquisite work of Rose Dolhanyk, doll creator extrordinaire!
