What paint color did you use?

Our Colors

Since we received so many emails asking us about the paint colors in our last catalog, we decided to share our top requests with you. For our spring/summer catalog, we actually shot on location at a house here in Atlanta, so we can’t provide an exact color. However, we’ve matched them as closely as we can, so you can color your house with style.

Color tip: Before you paint an entire room, test your choice. Purchase a sample size and paint a large patch. Live with it and view it in various light conditions. It may look entirely different on your wall!

All color matches are from Benjamin Moore paint.
