Entryway Makeover with Benjamin Moore by Kirsten Grove of Simply Grove

Happy Wednesday! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’m partnering with Benjamin Moore to help give a paint makeover to a 1910 home that my cousins just moved into. The main area that we focused on giving a paint makeover was the entryway. This beautiful, classic home needed a modern touch. My cousins are both cool, trendy and modern by nature but because they do love a few traditional elements, we chose to mix modern with those classic touches. Below is the before————-

The green isn’t terrible by any means! In fact, a lot of you inquired about this color. (It resembles Desert Green 443 from Benjamin Moore.) But because of this cool couple and their design needs, we chose to go with more of a contrast.

In the end I chose Midnight Oil, 1631 in Eggshell and Decorators White, CC-20 in Eggshell. Both are Benjamin Moore’s Aura Interior. Aura is the ultimate in performance and color vitality. Midnight Oil is the darkest shade of blue-black and offers instant drama. We wanted the stairs to become a fun focal point so we chose to paint the stair molding in the Midnight Oil and walls surrounding in Decorators White. I can’t get over how beautiful the contrast is! It brings a modern touch to a classic, traditional space.

Let me just brag on Benjamin Moore paint for a second. When my cousins started painting their home, they used another brand in a few bedrooms and had to do several coats. After using BM, they quickly noticed a big difference and recognized that Benjamin Moore is super high quality. After only 1 coat, they were already pleasantly impressed. So friends, I really, honestly recommend Benjamin Moore!

  1. Looks beautiful! We recently switched over to Benjamin Moore as well. We did out whole main living area Super White and we love it. Do you have a source for the light? I’ve been searching for something similar. Thanks.

  2. I’m a huge BM fan; always have been. That color is very similar to “Iron Mountain” that we used on our stairs and mantel and just love. I’ve even had two people imitate/copy the color in their houses in our village!

  3. love the transformation..I too love Benjamin Moore paint..it offers
    superior quality and results are
    fantastic..keep up the good work

  4. While I love moving into a new house, and older home like this, with so much character and beauty would be spectacular! It turned out great!

  5. Love the color! Never thought it made sense for stair risers to be painted white when they scuff so easily

  6. I plan on painting my stairs ..My husband thinks we must stain instead of paint for endurance. I would rather paint if the paint is up for the job! Will BM paint work for stairs and last?

  7. Can you please share where the light is from? the three black shade chandelier? Would really appreciate a reply 🙂

  8. Hello: I LOVE this. I found it while searching for inspiration to deal with my white staircase. I was wondering what made you paint the wall gray as well? (the one where the plant is). I love it, just wondering the rationale for painting it gray vs white. Thanks!!

  9. We were looking for a bit more contrast for this project and wanted to create a bold approach to the classic staircase. Plus, it’s fun to mix things up a bit!

  10. Hi! I see you got the light from school house electric. However, when I go to the link, it doesn’t show the shades on them. Did you somehow add them or am I missing something? Looking for something like this for my stairwell for my 1938 Tudor. Love all of this!
