Did you see the pillow on the new cover of the new Bed & Bath Pottery Barn catalog?
It says Bonne Nuit. I was excited to see one of my favorite color names from Benjamin Moore’s Affinity collection. I love this color!
Ben Moore spelled this paint chip wrong- it is not Bonnie Nuit, it is Bonne Nuit! haha
Why would they have a paint color named on their pillow? What does Bonne Nuit mean? So I read the description of the pillow. Ohhhhhh.
“Ornate script spells out french words for good night.” Did you know Bonne Nuit meant goodnight? I did not either.
So, getting back to the subject, ( I saw the catalog and my mind went every which way!) I looked online at Pottery Barn and saw that they have added their 2010 Fall list of 28 Ben Moore paints, with page numbers, to go along with their new Fall catalog here. Ok, here is another mistake. Look at the color chart, they listed the same color 3-4 times. Crazy! Of course the colors are all light neutrals, same as always for Pottery Barn. Oh wait, excuse me, there are two bold blues!
I have used a few of the colors that are listed that I love because of their versatility to work with so many other colors. Hush is a color from the Affinity Color Collection at Benjamin Moore which is described as a sophisticated palette of harmonious hues designed to express your color vision with confidence. The introduction of 144 beautiful colors was designed so that each color can work on it’s own or in combination with any other color in the Affinity collection. Both of the colors Manchester Tan and Hush work well in living rooms. They are neutrals to work well with other colors, but strong enough to hold up on their own.
And one of my favorite colors to use for ceilings is Affinity’s Constellation.
It is a beautiful light blue shade. I had read an article a short time ago here at The House Of Turquoise, where blue painted ceilings were featured. Don’t you love how the ceilings seem to open up to the sky? I am going to use this pretty blue in my next bedroom project. I will be sure to post pictures to share with you!
So what do you think of Pottery Barn’s Fall colors? Great for those looking for that soft colored background. But I guess that is what Pottery Barn represents, a classic collection of furniture and accessories.
