Everyone knows that paint can completely transform a room + I’ve seen that first hand many times! In all of our past properties we’ve used Benjamin Moore, because we are always impressed with the quality and colour offerings, so having them as paint sponsor of our build is so exciting! That being said, I’ve compiled the main shades we’ll be using below in a paint index, and no surprise, it’s very neutral but lots of contrast and I’ve included some inspo images of where each shade will be going to give you a better idea! (all images from Pinterest).
Any questions, or if there is a BM colour you love that you think I have to consider adding to our paint index, drop it in the comments! x
Simply White will be all of the mail walls, ceilings, trims – we’ve used this shade before in our last reno and I just find it to be a nice neutral white without being too cool. I have had other people say they found it to have too strong of yellow undertones, but I think as long as you have a lot of natural light (which we luckily do), it’s a great option.
Black Panther will be the shade for our powder room! I’ve wanted to do a dark, moody powder room forever, and I can’t wait. The color experts at BM actually helped me to hand select this shade based on my inspo image below so I can’t wait to see it up!!
Manchester Tan, French White and Strand of Pearls are the shades I’m debating for the kitchen cabinets (listed from deepest to most subtle). As you’ll see, the vibe is a griege (leaning to slightly more beige), which I think is going to really beautifully compliment the floors and brass accents, but still be classic.
Revere Pewter is what I’m thinking for my study (aka my office but that’s what it’s called on our floorplan and it makes me feel like a badass lol), and also potentially for the mudroom built ins… maybe laundry room too?
Lastly, charcoal slate and Westcott navy are what I’m debating for the dining room built ins (we have two floor to ceiling units flanking the window in there). They are adjacent to the kitchen so I want it to be complimentary but still feel distinct and give a little drama to the room. I want it to be the vibe of the below image which I’m obsessed with!
