March-April 2016 Paint Colors

Benjamin Moore Delray Gray paint color from Ballard Designs 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.

    Thank you for posting all the colors you use for inspiration! Benjamin Moore’s Delray Gray is in my BM classic deck listed as #1614. I think the 2112-60 is a typo which is actually Cement Gray. I love this blue/gray along with Brewster Gray that was featured before.

      Hayley,
      We used two different blue colors in our Summer catalog — Benjamin Moore’s Mountain Mist and Fantasy Blue. You can find all of the color here.

    I noticed that white dove often has a slight “yellow” hue to it. I thought for sure it was a cream color, not white. I’m guessing it’s the natural light coming into the rooms that reflects a yellow tint. Do you find this to be the case? I know paint can look so different between the chip and how it appears on a wall…I’ve been looking for that perfect ivory (8 samples and 2 gallons later)… Thanks!

    What trim colors did you use on your White Dove walls-some appear to be whiter than others showing more contrast? Thanks..always love your rooms and vignettes!

      Bonny,
      I’m so sorry, we have no information about the trim colors used in these rooms! We might suggest just going to a paint store and grabbing some samples to try out. That’s probably the best way to find what you’re looking for!
