What's Your Favorite Paint Color Right Now?


Among the trending colors for 2017 is Benjamin Moore’s Wish. This is my new favorite. It’s a great beige that is a true neutral, with just the right amounts of gray and yellow. It’s a completely versatile and sophisticated color that can work with any type of design: contemporary, traditional, urban loft, or country chic.

With exuberant fabric patterns and bolder colors trending this season, my go-to neutral paint color is Benjamin Moore’s London Fog. It’s the right mix of quiet elegance that rests in the background — perfect for layering expressive details in any room!

I love purple and searched a lot for the perfect soft shade that is sophisticated yet fresh. Don’t be deceived by the subtlety [of Sherwin-Williams Silver Peony]. The color comes through richly on the wall and is especially beautiful in a bedroom, bath, or sitting room. I like very soft greens, and despite the name, Benjamin Moore’s Gray Wisp is a green. The gray base tones it down and makes it super-easy to live with. It reminds me of the lamb’s ear plant in my garden: exquisitely soft and elegant. I would like this in any room with lots of windows or paired with a crisp white trim in a darker space.

I am far from a designer, but my go-to color for every room and even trim is Benjamin Moore’s White Dove. I had my living room painted another color, and a designer friend suggested I repaint it White Dove. I was skeptical, but I know not all whites are created equal, so I broke down and had it done. I could not be more happy with the transformation, and now I use it whenever I need a go-to white.

Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl (right) and Revere Pewter (left) are my two favorite colors. They have been my go-to wall colors for a while. They are just what I look for in a paint color: neutral yet can help unify a space. They both play well with others while allowing the other colors to stand out, and they are serene. (It’s nice to have a color help to create a calming place to come home to.) They work equally well in a modern, clean-lined space or a more traditional space, enveloping you in just the right amount of color — or lack of it.
