August – September 2016 Paint Colors

Find the paint colors from our Fall 2016 paint colors

August - September 2016 paint colors from the Ballard Designs catalog

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.

      Hi Shele,
      While we don’t know the exact color of the wall, we recommend you try Benjamin Moore’s Spring Iris 1402 for a similar look.

    I’m sooooooo happy I found this!!! I actually called Ballard Designs to ask them what color paint was on page 22 of their late Fall 2016 catalog. I was interested in the curtains but only if I could find the paint. I’ve been searching hi and low and even purchased a paint that ended up being waaaaaay too dark (glad I haven’t used it). Thank you!!!

      Mikka,
      So happy to hear that! Just be sure to test the color in your space since paint can look drastically different from one room to the next. Thanks for your comment and good luck!

    In one of the illustrations of Benjamin Moore’s “Galapagos Turquoise”, there’s a couch with nailhead trim upholstered in a dusty teal velvet (looks greener than the wall color). What is the fabric of that couch? Th Robbinsank you!

      Okay, I think I see it is amber slate. Looks a little green-blue in that picture so I thought it might be different.
