Summer 2017 Paint Colors

Paint colors from the 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.

    Which color ceiling did you do on page 93 with the Rainstorm walls? The picture is cropped so can’t see if it is same color (would that be too much?) or some shade of white. Thanks!

      Jacqueline,
      The ceiling is a shade of white, but I don’t know what color exactly!

      Hi Cathy,
      I want to make sure I can give you the right paint color! Could you be more specific to what rooms are on those pages?
      Thank you!

    All colors are lively look-wise and will go best with matching curtains.

    Love the color of the walls on pages 94 & 95 of the June 2017 catalog. It’s not any of the colors listed above, but do you know what color it is? Thank you!

      Kim,
      Unfortunately I don’t have any information about the color of the kitchen island. We shoot in real houses, so this is a paint color the homeowner chose. I’m so sorry. Of course, you can always have the catalog color matched at your local paint store which should get you pretty close to the color in real life.
      Best of luck!
      Caroline
