In the basement, we built a guest suite for our au pair and used Eider White on the walls.

The garden level of this home had a large rock fireplace that made the room feel dark and dated. To brighten up the space, I painted the stone fireplace Eider White to match the upper walls in the room.

The beadboard on the lower section of the walls is Mindful Gray and the fireplace hearth is Dorian Gray by Sherwin Williams.
