January – February 2017 Paint Colors

January through February paint colors for 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.

    I am in love with the urban bronze color and am using it on a shiplap look over my fireplace and kitchen island. My kitchen is ope to my living room where the fireplace is. Do you have a suggestion of what grey toned color would look good with the urban bronze? Specific color suggestions would be great! (I was looking at revere pewter, mindful grey and repose grey ) Thanks!

      Amy,
      All of these colors should work well with the Urbane Bronze because they all are a gray with warmth. The Urbane Bronze has a lot of brown in it, so when you’re choosing a lighter complementary color, also look for something with brown. I would definitely do lots of test swatches on your walls though since every paint color can look drastically different depending on the space. Test them all out on your fireplace to make sure you’re happy with the one you pick.
      Best of luck!

    What color is in the laundry room on pages 36-37 in the Jan. 2017 catalog? It looks too green to be glacier blue. Thanks so much!

      Robin,
      I would suggest looking through our paint color choices from each catalog to see if there are any options similar to what you are looking for. You can find that here: https://www.howtodecorate.com/category/decorating/paint-colors/
      Otherwise, if it is a color choice more specific to a room and furniture, we offer a free design service in which our interior designers help pick out fabric, furniture, accessories, color, etc. Just send in your question along with a picture of the space here and a designer will reach out to you with a design solution!
      Hope this helps!

    I would love it if you would include a description of the different paint swatches that includes what undertones are in the paint. Many times, the lighting in the catalog and on line makes the paint appear different than it truly is. I notice Ballard often selects paints with brown undertones, while I prefer to minimize the brown. Is there a source for finding out this information? I don’t seem to see it on the paint retailers websites either.

    There is a beautiful white bamboo console pictured above. Is this item sold by Ballard? Many thanks.

      Amy,
      I’m so sorry but I don’t have the paint color for the trim in these rooms. Since we shoot in real homes, we’ll often repaint the walls, but we don’t have any information about the existing trim color.
