May-July 2016 Paint Colors

By |Catalog Paint Colors, Decorating, Featured|4 Comments

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. We use Benjamin Moore paint, but most paint stores can match any color.
