My favorite paint colors

One of the most common, “hey, since you’re an interior designer, can I pick your brain” questions always centers around paint colors. And honestly, it’s one of the hardest things to pick. Paint colors change so much depending on surroundings, natural light, even the part of the country you live in. Blues here on the coast show differently than up north because they tend to reflect off the water. While building my own house, that’s the one thing that took the longest to finalize! Here are some of my favorites, but remember, always TEST a small spot on a wall, and make sure you look at the color at different times of the day, in both natural and artificial light.

    Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter has been one of our favourite neutrals for a long time. It’s warm without being too beige and grey without being too blue. It’s perfect for any room in the house and will fit into both contemporary or more traditional designs.
