Providing the paint colors used in Ballard Designs catalogs can be difficult, because we constantly shoot at actual homes that have been painted by their owners. However, our team of stylists has chosen paint colors that are as close to the actual wall colors as we could find. These colors will blend with our furniture, accessories and fabric.

As with any paint, various light conditions can affect how the color will look in your environment. We recommend purchasing a small paint sample. Paint a large square, let it dry and look at it in both the day and at night (paint color changes as light changes). This method is inexpensive and will save you from making a much bigger and more expensive mistake. Also note that printed colors will not match paint chips exactly, so always try a sample on your wall before you start your project. For simplicity, we use Benjamin Moore paint matches. Most paint stores are happy to match any color that you bring them.

We hope that you enjoy reviewing the colors chosen. We think the colors will give you a great background for your Ballard Look.
