When the weather starts to cool, there’s nothing more appealing than snuggling up in a warm environment. To create a cozier space, consider changing up your wall color. Muddy hues and a darker value will give your room a cocooning effect, perfect for hibernating during cold weather months.
Find all of the wall colors from our Fall 2020 catalog. 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.
Chelsea Gray #HC-168, Benjamin Moore
Balance warm and cool tones. We chose lots of warm woods and accents of browns in our decor, so we went with a cooler wall color for balance. Benjamin Moore’s Chelsea Gray is a true gray, not too light and not too dark.
Hiking Trail #CC-514, Benjamin Moore
This coffee-colored paint color from Benjamin Moore complements the brown, crimson, and purple colors in our favorite new fabric Victoria Dune. It warms up each of these spaces to create the cozy, library-inspired feel we were looking to create.
Aesthetic White #SW-7085, Sherwin Williams
We chose a white with a little warmth to it for this work from home space. It echos the warm palette of our Belgian Oak office collection, and provides a flattering glow to the room. We love it mixed with warm ochres and dark brown leather.
Glass of Milk #P260-1, Behr
This creamy white wall color from Behr plays beautifully with whitewashed furniture and natural linen materials. It’s not too cold and not too yellow, the perfect in-between when using lots of white fabrics and finishes in a single space.
Solitude #AF-545, Benjamin Moore
This gorgeous blue wall color has a touch of gray to it, giving it depth and letting it play almost like a neutral in the room. It adds energy, while still being subtle enough to let the table and chairs take center stage.
Classic Gray #OC-23, Benjamin Moore
Benjamin Moore’s Classic Gray is almost white but with a little bit more color to it. It’s a great neutral when you don’t want to go all the way white but still want to brighten up your space.
