Color Swap

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

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

via

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 Beautiful Greige- BM Grant Beige

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

I never wrote about a specific beige before. But lately, I am drawn to this neutral medium beige with a touch of gray in it. Benjamin Moore’s Grant Beige HC-83 is nothing fancy, just a beautiful soft color for the walls:

Isn’t it beautiful? I just recently took the time to really look at it and see how subtle this beige is but with strength to not get lost in the room:

Grant Beige has green undertones which makes it easier to work with than the beiges with red or yellow undertones. Green undertones do not scream out, “ Look at me!” and will often work well with red or yellow undertones.

I love how well it works with whites, black, gray, red, green and blues. I am starting to design a room now with a color palette of grant beige, white and navy. Gorgeous!

And I love how it looks with stained trim:

What a beautiful room, isn’t it?

So, are these photos demonstrating why I am loving the Grant Beige color? Plus, this greige works with contemporary and transitional settings as well as traditional. What more can you ask of a beige?

Beautiful Kitchen Transformation

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!

I wanted to share with you an online kitchen redesign I have been working on. I have been working with Jeff for a few months. He sent me photos and asked for ideas to update and refresh his kitchen without taking out the existing oak cabinets.

Since his oak cabinets are so bossy, we had to address them first and find the right paint color. I gave Jeff a few wall color options that would work well and he decided on Benjamin Moore Agave AF-420. This paint color works beautifully with oak cabinets:

I love how Agave looks with the white trim also:

After we selected the paint color, I helped him choose his new countertops and backsplash:

I love the artwork he choose for the room and it gave us our beautiful green and blue color palette:

Blue 5 (4)

I sent him ideas with photos and links to products I knew would work well. He would choose the items he liked best that fit his budget and style.

We picked out lighting, rugs and window treatments and other accessories. Here is the design board I put together for him:

He loves it! I think it came out beautifully. So happy. We are still working on little details which I will share another day.

Happy New Year My Friends!
