August – October 2014 Paint Colors

Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore

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.

Summer is winding down, the kids are readying for the new school year, and we’ve been dreaming of chillier days and cozy nights. With Fall on the brain, you’ll find our catalog pages packed with deeper colors perfectly suited to creating cozy interiors.

    Hi. Could you please tell me the wall color behind the Laurent console on page 34 of the Fall 2014 catalog? It’s so beautiful with the wood tone of the furniture. Usually, you use the same wall color across a two-page spread, but the colors on page 34 and 35 appear to be from different color families Thanks for your reply.

      Hi Traci,
      Thanks for your comment. The wall color in that room is Benjamin Moore’s Navajo White #947. As always, we suggest testing every paint color in your space before making your final decision, as colors can look very different from one space to another. Best of Luck!

      Hi Rita,

      Thanks for your comment. The color is the same actually in both rooms, Benjamin Moore’s Smoky Mountain (#AC-18). They do look slightly different, but that is usually because of the light conditions in the room! As always, we suggest testing your paint colors with swatches before settling on your final color!

    Hi!
    I was excited to speak to a customer serves rep tonight, who told me how to navigate and find your paint colors used in issues. However, I don’t see the paint color I am looking for- it’s really silly- a very basic cream, but as you know, creams can get a little yellow and I’m having trouble finding just the right one for my very sun-filled foyer.

    In the Sept, 2014 issue that just came out, pages 6 & 7 have the very light cream i am looking for.
    Can you tell me the paint swatch name? It would be such a HUGE help!!!
    Thanks so much,
    Daniella

      Hi Karen,

      Thanks for your comment. That’s a beautiful room — great choice! We suggest Linen White (#912) from Benjamin Moore. As always, be sure to paint a few swatches on your wall before making your final decision. Colors can have a very different look based on the amount of light your room gets and the directional exposure!

        Linen White has been my ‘go too’ wall color of choice for years….whether left alone, or as an aid on color selection.

      Hi Lauren,

      The paint color used in that space is Kendall Charcoal (#HC-166). 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!
