I think it is so interesting that some of the colors between Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams are so similar. For instance: Ben Moore Revere Pewter HC-172: revere pewter

Sherwin Williams Collonade Gray SW 7641:

There is actually a list I have been adding to over the years. These colors not only look the same they also match based on their RGB values. A color’s RGB value indicates its red, green, and blue intensity. Each intensity value is on a scale of 0 to 255, or in hexadecimal from 00 to FF. Ben Moore Palladian Blue HC-144: bm palladian blue

Sherwin Williams Rainwashed SW 6211: sw rainwashed

So similar. This must be why these two colors are both so popular! Ben Moore Manchester Tan HC-81: man tan   Sherwin Williams Softer Tan SW 6141: SW7641sw6141 Maybe your painter only uses Sherwin Williams paint but you had your heart set on BM White Dove OC-17 for your trim color. SW has a match that looks exactly the same. It is called Greek Villa SW 7551. Ben Moore Classic Gray OC-23: bm classic gray

via

Sherwin Williams Zurich White SW 7626: sw zurich white

via

Pretty remarkable how close the colors look. Ben Moore Raspberry Truffle 2080-10: bm raspberry truffle

via

Sherwin Williams Poinsettia SW 6594: sw poinsettia

via

Ben Moore Wythe Blue HC-143: bm wythe blue2

Sherwin Williams Quietude SW 6212: sw quietude

I hope you enjoyed! I love looking at colors different ways. I have a whole list if anyone is interested. I also wanted to share with you that I received an email yesterday that stated, “We’re writing to let you know that you’ve been voted by the Houzz community as a winner of our Best of Houzz 2015 awards!” I was so excited! Hooray! houzz badge I am off to Sarasota, FL tomorrow. I am hoping it is sunny and warm! Thanks everyone!

A Few Of My Favorite Sherwin William Colors

Written by Kelly on January 13th, 2015

Rainwashed SW6211:

Rainwashed, from the Sherwin Williams paint collection, is one of the most perfect turquoise colors I have ever seen. That is why it has become one of my trusted go-to paint colors.

Look how pretty Rainwashed looks with these gorgeous coral chairs:

Speaking of coral, Sherwin Williams Coral Reef SW6606 was named the paint color of the year for 2015. That was the only color announcement for 2015 I was excited and pleased about!

So gorgeous!

And you know how I love coral and navy:

Sherwin Williams most popular gray is Agreeable Gray SW7029:

I love a paint color that changes in different lighting and what surrounds it. I consider this color a favorite greige and looks great with white as well as stained trim.

Naval SW6244:

A beautiful blue green is SW Oyster Bay6206:
