May – July 2014 Paint Colors

Wall color for blue bedroom

Suzanne Kasler bedroom with blue wall color

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.

Sunny skies, a warm breeze, and maybe the sound of waves crashing outside? All of these can only mean one thing, summer has arrived! This year, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the waterfront that so many of us are drawn to during this time of year. As a result, you’ll see lots of nautical-inspired spaces, breezy neutrals, and ocean hues on the pages of our Summer catalog.

      Jessica,
      Unfortunately the bedding in that space is discontinued, although we do still have a limited selection of the pieces in that collection.
      We do have lots of other striped bedding collections though. You might like our Gigi Striped Tassel Bedding which has a casual, beachy vibe like the Riviera Linen Bedding. So glad you like these pieces, and thanks for visiting our blog.

        Unfortunately, we no longer have that rug available on our site. However, we have a similar striped rug currently offered called the”Vineyard Striped Rug”. You can find it here:

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your comment. That headboard is the Ballard Designs Giselle Tufted Headboard. I believe in this photo, it’s upholstered in Suzanne Kasler 13 ounce Signature Linen in Blanc.

      Hope that helps!

    I’m confused.
    Above, you stated that the wall color in the late summer catalog on pages 56/57 and 77 were all BM Moonshine. However, the color on 56/57 is clearly different from page 77. Could you please check again for the paint color on page 56/57? Page 56 has the following items for sale: Belgard Media Console, Custom Soliloquy Glicees, Valletta Candle Sconce, Ananda Serving Table, Shipwreck Urn, Fiona Pendant, Abeille Side Table and Lauren Rug. The color is depicted on a paneled wall.
    Thank you.

      Hi Jennifer!

      Thanks for your comment. You’re right, it is very confusing! We even confuse ourselves sometimes. Throughout the summer, we have several different catalogs with the many of the same rooms in those different catalogs. The pages are shuffled around in the different catalogs, so on page 77 of the July catalog, the room is the same room that is on page 103 of the Late Summer catalog. Same room, two different catalogs, two different page numbers. Does that make sense?

      So, the room you’re wondering about from Late Summer 2014, with the items you listed above on the paneled wall, that is Benjamin Moore’s Moonshine (#2140-60). But you’re correct, it’s not the same wall color as on page 77 in the same catalog (Late Summer 2014). But on page 77 of the July 2014 catalog, it’s the same paneled wall.

      I’m so sorry it’s so confusing! Hope my explanation clears it up a bit!!

      Best,

      Hi Lori,
      We suggest Valley Forge Tan #AC-35. As always we suggest painting a few swatches on your wall before making your final decision. Depending on the lighting in your room and the furnishings, paint colors can read very differently from space to space.
      Best of luck!

    Hi! I was wondering if the design team could you tell me the color on page 56 in your latest catalogue? It’s a shot in the bottom left hand corner of the page where the valletta candle sconces are mounted onto a paneled wall? The same color/wall continues onto the next page with another picture of a white sofa placed in front of the paneling? Thanks so much!
