Catalog Paint Colors & Wallpaper

Catalog Paint Colors and Wallpaper in January 2014

Catalog Paint Colors from January 2014

Because we shoot in real homes, we are not always at liberty to paint the walls. In those cases, we have chosen paint colors that best match the wall color in the photo. Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish and other factors.  Therefore, it’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first. We use Benjamin Moore paint, but most paint stores can match any color.

Old Man Winter is upon us. And we’re welcoming him with open arms. Our winter welcoming committee starts with color – neutrals of snowy white, sandalwood and gray layered in hushed tones of spa, smoky lavender and dusty rose.

Benjamin Moore's White Rain paint color

Graystone by Benjamin Moore

You may have noticed in our Winter 2014 catalog that this year marks the return of wallpaper. Wallpaper has been re-invented — it is no longer your Grandmother’s florals! Instead, it is soothing and textural, giving your room a wonderful dimension. Metallics are a hot trend colored in soft golds, coppers, and brass, or try a wall of grasscloth for added interest. For Ballard’s 2014 collection, we chose fabulous patterns and textures that will enhance the beauty of any room. We are certain you will agree that wallpaper is one of the most exciting trends of the year.

Below, you’ll see which wallpapers made it into our most recent catalog:

Ballard Designs Wallpaper in Trellis Gray

Ballard Designs Ticking wallpaper in Taffeta

Ballard Designs Grasscloth wallpaper in Blue

Ballard Designs Asian Toile wallpaper in Spa

    Hi! Beautiful stuff. What rug is in the picture with the Greystone # 1475?
    What about the various natural rugs – do you sell those?
    And the frames in the first image with the prints?

    Thank you!

      Amelia,
      Unfortunately, that rug is no longer available on our site. We do,however,currently offer a few rugs that are similar to that style:
      The Palmer Hand Knotted Rug

      Suzanne Kasler Emily Hand Knotted Rug

      As for natural rugs, we do carry a wide selection of natural fiber rugs on our site here: .
      The frames in the picture came with those prints. Unfortunately, we do not sell frames separately from the prints. We do have similar prints with a similar frame such as our Alabaster Bloom art found here: .

    From the March 2015 catalog, can you please tell me the paint colors on page 65 (bedroom), can you also tell me if most of the linens you offer in “spa” (Jardin Toille, Edith Vine, Gwenneth Check, Colette, Ava Block, Audree Pom” are close enough in color to mix and match?

    Thank you!

    I just received my 3 Marchessa runners I am going to have installed on my stairway and the 5×8 rug to use in the foyer. I would like to know what paint color you would recommend for the stairwell, upstairs hall and downstairs foyer. The color pictured in the February 2015 catalogue on page 8 with the rug is very nice. What is the color?
    Thank you,
    Martha

      Hi Martha,
      We might suggest pulling your wall color from either the gray or taupe color in the rug, but using a shade much lighter. The color you’re wondering about is Benjamin Moore’s Cascade Mountains #862.
      Best of Luck!

      Hi Diane,

      Yes, the wall color on page 6 or 7 is the same as the one on page 37 — Benjamin Moore’s Royal Silk #939. As always, we suggest you test a few colors on your wall before making your final decision as paint colors can look very different from space to space!

    Our bachelor son has bought a new home and needs to decorate around a large forest green with some blackish marbling leather sectional with rolled arms (3 seats, corner, 2 seats). It was expensive and still quite handsome. He would like paint color, fabric club chairs , area rug, and some lighting and wall suggestions. The room has cherry wood floors with white crown molding. Help please!
