COLOR TOUR: Kim’s Overlook Neighborhood Tudor

Bauhaus Buff | E0128

Kim is a residential realtor who lives in a 1929 Tudor that she describes as “special, warm, and relaxed.” The exterior of her Overlook neighborhood home is painted Bauhaus Buff | E0128 which strikes a lovely contrast with the vintage home’s original brickwork and black front door Subway | 1209.

Just inside the front door of the Tudor is a fireplace, the centerpiece of the main room. “My color palette helps me experience each room in a unique way- I’m able to enjoy my living room art and furniture with Sugar Dust | 0011 as the backdrop.”

Sugar Dust | 0011 connects the living room and dining area, and serves as the perfect neutral background for Kim’s dining room decor. “Orange, rust and terracotta are my favorite colors, and I ADORE my orange chairs.”

What’s your favorite element of your home? “I love the gorgeous original warm wood trim throughout, and the hardwood floors.”

Opal of Lorraine | E0165

Beyond the dining room is Kim’s charming vintage kitchen. She chose Miller Paint’s Calm Thoughts | 0698 to subtly compliment the mint-colored tile. Opal of Lorraine | E0165 on the backdoor echoes the black accents in the tile, kitchen cart and cabinet hardware.

Upstairs, the Tudor’s attic has been converted into a spacious loft with a sitting area and walk-in closet, another restful space in which Kim finds solace through color and design. “Metro | 0530 bedroom with its 10-foot ceilings is a calm oasis.”
