This summer, we embraced light paint colors to set a subtle backdrop to bold patterns in our fabrics, pillows, and drapery. The lighter colors enhance other accents without taking center stage.
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.
Benjamin Moore’s Fairest Pink
With so many clean lined furniture pieces, we love bringing in a feminine wall color like Benjamin Moore’s Fairest Pink #2092-70. It’s a light pink with a touch of gray so it’s not too sweet, the perfect backdrop to more mid-toned grays which we worked into our space through fabrics and painted furniture.
Benjamin Moore’s Hollingsworth Green #HC-141
Several of our favorite new fabrics (like Conley Stripe and Rochelle Green) have a fern green color palette, so we chose the lightest green possible to complement those tones. For a few of these rooms, we actually cut the color in half, making it even lighter.
Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl #BM2137-60
When white just doesn’t feel substantial enough, we typically go for a very light gray like Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl. It’s a very light shade with a bit of warmth to it. We love the way it balances soft pink accents and fabrics like we used in these spaces.
Sherwin Williams’ Endless Sea#SW 9150
On a front door, it really pays to go bold. It draws visitors in and gives your home’s façade a focal point. To give this coastal home a subtly nautical vibe, we chose Sherwin Williams’ Endless Sea. It’s almost navy but with a touch of green, so it feels halfway between peacock and indigo.
