Paint Colors in Our Home

When I was trying to choose paint colors for our home, I had a heck of a time finding pictures on the internet to help me decide. I am adding these (both from our previous home and our current one) to assist people who are interested in using any of these colors. All of the paint used is Benjamin Moore. I used the Aura Matte finish throughout our whole home, and I have a love/hate relationship with it. It dries quickly (like, super quickly!), and if you go over it after it's dried, it will clump up. I wanted a thick paint that would cover the crappy builder's paint we had that made the walls as dry as dust. Even with the thick Aura paint, I had to go over the wall a second time (usually) to get the paint to cover well.
