Rooms Painted in Ben Moore Paint Colors

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Don’t you love looking at room pictures when they actually list the paint color?  I do. Although you are still looking through the computer screen, you get a much better idea of a color rather than just looking at a small paint sample.  Here are just a few of my Benjamin Moore favorites:

Kendall Charcoal HC-166

 Chalk White 2126-70 9 (a light gray)

Love this blue:

 Van Deusen Blue  HC-156

Merlot Red 2006-10

Bittersweet Chocolate 2114-10

Come Sail Away 846


Richmond Bisque Ext. RM

 Iceberg 2122-50

 Blue Seafoam 2056-60

This next color Storm is getting really popular as more people are noticing it:

Storm AF-700

Overcast OC-43

Nightingale AF-670

Love, love this navy:

 Old Navy 2063-10

All of the photos above were taken from House Beautiful.  Below are a few of Pottery Barn’s favorite Ben Moore paint colors:

Benjamin Moore® Aura® Paint - Monroe Bisque Monroe Bisque HC-26

Kabash AF- 640

Santorini Blue 1634

Simply White OC-117

Manchester Tan HC-81

Spanish Red 1301

Hawthorne Yellow HC-4

Morrocan Red 1309

Stone Brown 2112-30

Sandy Hook Gray HC-108

Da Vinci’s Canvas 208

I hope these photos have helped you visualize what the paint colors will actually look like in your room and help narrow down your choices to a favorite color, or feel, to your room.  This post and photos has actually helped me figure out a whole color scheme for a guest room I just started working on again.  I am so excited! I love when it just clicks!  I will write you all about the room redesign.  Another day, another story.  Stay tuned.

Comments please!  Did you find a new color you love?

P.S.  I do not work for BM.   I just have worked with Ben Moore colors for so many years now that I feel comfortable suggesting them to you because I know they have really great colors and a great consistent formula for the walls.
