We're planning on continuing the butternut squash from the downstairs hall through the stairs to the upstairs hall; it will be helpful mostly by not clashing with any of the bedrooms, which we made zero effort to co-ordinate.

ETA: We went with Aura for everything, matte or eggshell depending on the room. We didn't go satin (we're not, even in the kitchen) because the walls have too many imperfections that would show up.

We had one painter for the downstairs lav, and then D. for everything else. Both painters were familiar with Aura (or at least had a compatible painting style). As you can see from our selections, we are Big Believers in Color. We like Aura because it has great colors, minimal ruboff (everyone seems to claim none and/or no marking when touched, which is NOT true with really dark colors like the Tuscany Green -- but the marking problem is far less than I had with the extremely dark red I had from Ralph Lauren years ago. YMMV.), cleans well, includes an anti-mildew, IIRC, and has low/no VOCs. With a lot of paints, I have to leave the room in order to deal with the smell; with Benjamin Moore Aura, you can paint the room next to the one I am in, in the middle of winter, and I won't even think to turn a fan on.

It is double the price of a "normal" can of paint, however.

R. asked about the colors in the living room for some unrelated communication and started asking me, and we realized we had never created a full accounting of what we picked, which might be useful to have.

ETA: We are about to become The House with the Purple Door:

I was thinking more along the lines of Pinot Grigio Grape, but we've decided not to mess around.

ETA: R. notes that we forgot to add the color for the third floor.
