We are busy bees over at the McCarthy household preparing for Master Rhett’s 1st Birthday party. Nothing like an event to make you do things around the house – isn’t that always true? We are renovating our powder room, laundry room and refacing a few details in the kitchen. I have never been so happy to get rid of the clothesline themed and overbearing floral wallpaper in both rooms. What a breath of fresh air! I’m going to be painting the cabinets a nice smokey grey and embellishing with polished nickel hardware. Between my signature Benjamin Moore Crystalline and a new grey, we’ll be making this space our own. I say ‘signature’ because I have finagled  this color into just about every room in the house. Here are the final paint colors and inspirations for hardware and  a sink – cannot wait to post after photos. I’ll spare you the headache of seeing the before.
