March-April 2015 Paint Colors

Paint colors from Ballard Designs Spring 2015 catalog

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.

It may not feel like it, but it’s Spring in our book, or at least it is on the pages of our Spring catalog! This season, we love mixing neutral wall colors with cool upholstery and fabrics! We’ve fallen for turquoise, citron, and splashes of coral this season, all balanced with generous doses of neutrals.

    I like the bookcases/cabinets with the glass doors that appear in some of the pictures. Where are they from?

    Hi! I’ve been trying to figure out the wall color that you used in your March 2nd catalog. It was on page 6, Style Update: Coral. The coral color you used on the wall is beautiful!!!

    I have been debating buying the Spring Walkway Stretched Canvas for quite some time. My sofas are linen color and my walls are a light beige complemented with a medium wood coffee table and dark dining set. I love the blues and greens the picture appears to have online but not sure if they will be too vivid – too much bright blue….. Can you offer any insight?

      Erin,
      Based on your description of your room, it sounds like Spring Walkway will go beautifully! The blues and greens are very pretty, but not especially vivid. They are a bit muddy in color.
      Hopefully that answers your question!

      Sandra,
      Revere Pewter is a great choice because it has a balance of warm and cool tones. I think it’ll work nicely with your furniture, while also adding a fresh look from the gold color you’ve grown tired of. Best of luck!
