Livable. Flexible. Beautiful. These are just a few reasons why Benjamin Moore paint is the top choice amongst interior designers. Of course, there is an impressive array of colors to choose from in their fan deck, so here are a few of the tried and true color standouts to help you narrow down your selection:


Simply White OC-117

The perfect white- it's not overly stark and won't read yellow. It's a fantastic shade of white that you can't go wrong with, either as a wall or trim color.


It pairs beautifully with other colors too!


Here it is on the trim alongside the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year, Aegean Teal. Love that gorgeous green? Check out this post for more design details!


Amazon Green 2136-30

This stunning deep green is subtle enough to act as a neutral while also being bold enough to have a real presence in a space. Few colors can refresh and energize a room the way that green can, and it's a delightfully unexpected color choice for a kitchen island, as seen in this project For more details, check out this post- Project Spotlight: The Ultimate Family Kitchen.

Nimbus 1465

Sitting perfectly between a warm and cool gray, Nimbus can lean either warm or cool depending on the lighting conditions. For example, if you have north-facing light, it will lean a bit cooler; however, it will look slightly warmer if you have south-facing light.

Winter Solstice 1605

Winter Solstice creates a serene and spa-like feel, making it a perfect choice for the bathroom. Benjamin Moore describes this color as, "Resembling early evening shadows on freshly fallen snow, this light, cool gray inspires thoughts of slipping into a warm wool sweater on a chilly night."


Balboa Mist 1549

Balboa Mist is a fantastic light grey that can subtly lean either cool or warm depending on the light. It is one of the most perfect light color choices for walls as it in no way appears like an off-white but beautifully stands on its own. It looks especially great when paired with white trim.

PRO TIP: Selecting the right undertones for your space and lighting conditions is half the battle when it comes to choosing a paint color. For example, certain undertones could make your entire space look drab and dingy or beautifully balanced and crisp. Never make your final paint decision before sampling on your walls! Be sure you evaluate the samples throughout the day and night to observe how the colors change with different lighting.
