Catalog Paint Colors from January 2014

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.

Old Man Winter is upon us. And we’re welcoming him with open arms. Our winter welcoming committee starts with color – neutrals of snowy white, sandalwood and gray layered in hushed tones of spa, smoky lavender and dusty rose.

Benjamin Moore's White Rain paint color

Graystone by Benjamin Moore

You may have noticed in our Winter 2014 catalog that this year marks the return of wallpaper. Wallpaper has been re-invented — it is no longer your Grandmother’s florals! Instead, it is soothing and textural, giving your room a wonderful dimension. Metallics are a hot trend colored in soft golds, coppers, and brass, or try a wall of grasscloth for added interest. For Ballard’s 2014 collection, we chose fabulous patterns and textures that will enhance the beauty of any room. We are certain you will agree that wallpaper is one of the most exciting trends of the year.

Below, you’ll see which wallpapers made it into our most recent catalog:
