Lately I have been getting a lot of calls from clients needing help to choose color for their home.
Selecting color is where a lot of homeowners get stumped. They know they want color on the walls, but not sure how much or how it should flow from room to the next. This is one area where I encourage clients to seek out the professional guidance of an interior designer. There is a lot that has to be considered when building a color palette for a room and an entire home. Some of the things to consider are:
The mood you want to create in the room
The lighting conditions of the space
How colors will flow from room to room
The texture of the walls and the sheen of the paint
Do you want neutrals or bold colors
Do you want an accent wall or two
Durability of the finish
There is so much more to consider. It can definitely be overwhelming. So incase you are in the same boat, here are a couple of inspiring palettes to get you started.
Benjamin Moore Colors: Hush, Mysterious, Etruscan, Thicket, Elk Horn, Storm
Benjamin Moore Colors: Jute, Steam, Tamarind, Coastal path, Flora, Citrine, Tucson Coral
There is also color help on our website through our Color Cue page. Each month we post a color of the month and a room painted in the same color. This month’s color of the month is Benjamin Moore Huntington Beige
And here is a client’s living room where we used Huntington beige in eggshell finish
