Fall 2018 Catalog Paint Colors

Fall 2018 catalog paint colors from Ballard Designs
We’re always looking for design inspiration, and we know you are too. That’s why for each new season, we like to share the paint colors we used in our seasonal rooms. In this post, we’re sharing all of the colors from our Fall 2018 catalog.

Because we shoot in real homes, we’re not always at liberty to paint the walls, and in those cases, we’ve 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. It’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first.

North Cascades #1411, Benjamin Moore

Soft, serene pastels set a relaxing mood and set off warm woods and grays alike. We love how unexpected light purples feel this time of year.

New York State of Mind #805, Benjamin Moore

A little drama never hurt anyone. For these spaces, we chose a dark and moody blue from Benjamin Moore. Bring in whites, woods, and black to complement this perfect navy.

White Rain #708, Benjamin Moore

We consider spa our signature, so it’s a no-brainer to use Benjamin Moore’s White Rain on the wall of this feminine bedroom. 

Inner Balance #1522, Benjamin Moore

For a little warmth, we chose this versatile taupe from the Benjamin Moore fan deck. Beige doesn’t have to be boring, especially when you mix in warm caramel, navy blues, and tons of texture.

Chantilly Lace #OC-65, Benjamin Moore

For a crisp background, we love using Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace which has the smallest touch of yellow so it never looks cold or gray.

Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue in Miles Redd Living Room in Ballard Designs catalog

Hague Blue, Farrow & Ball

In this rich living room, designer Miles Redd chose Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue which has a touch of green. We love the way it blends dark teals and sea greens.

While the walls may feel soft and serene in light aqua, the dramatic elements in this dining room designed by Miles Redd bring the drama.

    Hi Caroline! I am redecorating my home office and love the feel of the the space on page 54 of the September 2018 catalog. Is the paint color used also Benjamin Moore, North Cascades #1411 or a different one? It looks a little more saturated, but it could just be the lighting effect. Thanks!

      Hi Tracye,
      No, this paint color isn’t North Cascades. This is actually the wall color in a home we shot in. I do not know the color because we didn’t pick it. I’m so sorry! I’d suggest taking our catalog to the paint store and having the guys match it.
      Best of luck!

    Which warm grays do you use from Benjamin Moore.
    I saw one online in a bedroom from Ballard but it didn’t say which catalog it was from. It has a couple gold sunbursts above the headboard.

      Hi Debbie,
      We love Benjamin Moore Stone Hearth #CC-490, Storm #AF-700, Herbal Escape #1487 for warmer gray options.

      The color is Benjamin Moore’s Inner Balance. I definitely think it’ll work with both the Tabitha and Marchesa rugs. Those pair so well together! Glad you liked these spaces.
      Happy decorating,
