Color question

December 1, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are finally finishing our basement and we plan on painting most of it Benjamin Moore colors Northampton putty HC 89and crown point sand HC 90. We've used HC 89 & 90 upstairs and my husband loves them but I'd like to paint "my room" lighter me I'm not sure which way to go. This room will be open to the rest of the basement by a 6' opening most times and closed by barn doors sometimes. Any suggestions?

How about HC-30 philadelphia cream? It's a light butterscotch.

I'd go with the lighter since it is a basement, you would not believe how much light can disappear in a basement and the lighter the paint and furnishings the better. Good luck!

We're pretty luck because it's a walk out basement and the lighting is great. It doesn't really feel like a basement.

I have a walkout basement with adjoining rooms painted in neutrals and the room where the french doors and windows are I tried to continue in that neutral theme and failed miserably. I think I am going to try and go deeper, warmer and stronger, maybe BM Van Courtland blue HC 145 or stratton blue. I am usually pretty good with paint colors, so I am anxious to read your thread and read suggestions. :

Does anyone know a blue or gray that will go with these colors?

Hi = try SW 7058 Magnetic Gray---see how it looks against the two hues you posted---should work perfectly for you. Good Luck!
