This beige is a good neutral that has enough of a backbone to not get completely lost in a room. Coat the walls in this color for a cozy feel.
A light gray-blue on the walls will keep the room feeling light and happy, but is a more kid-friendly option than bright white.
Brightening up a dark room with White Dove by Benjamin Moore will make it feel more spacious and alive.
This color is very calming and can add so much light to any kind of family room. And we want to have a calming family room, don't we?
Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter is the perfect light gray with slightly warm undertones. It will make any room feel instantly classic.
I painted my dining room a similar color and love the muted green tone. This particular hue is part of Benjamin Moore's Historic Color collection, so it's a good classic choice.
I'm sure we all know the wonders of chalkboard paint by now, but what about chalkboard paint in any color you want? Hudson Paint company makes wonderful chalkboard paint in a full range of colors, so you can paint that accent wall or vintage cupboard and draw on it, too!
Hudson Chalkboard Paint
This barely there off-white feels warm and soft like suede. I'd use it for a tranquil, spa-like bedroom.
Looking for the perfect, soft gray paint? Look no further than "Light French Gray" by Sherwin Williams. Their ecofriendly "green sure" paint is just right for most tiny spaces, such as your laundry room. I love this color and it's low odor makes me feel good about using it around my kids. The...
If you're in the mood for a new look but don't want to spend a lot of time or energy, then painting is your best bet. I like Cool Breeze from Benjamin Moore for a kitchen because it's calm and quiet, allowing for the food and company to be the stars.
Cool Breeze Paint
I love Benjamin Moore's Calm, which is part of their off-white color palette. This color is a pale gray with the slightest of lavender undertone. I would use it on the walls.
I am a huge fan of Benjamin Moore Natura paint; I used this zero-VOC formula to paint while I was pregnant, and it went on like a dream. Decorators White is THE classic white paint.
In my dream beach house, I would have almost-white walls, but the paint would have the fairest hint of blue. I want it to feel like a really bright and happy sky.
Pebble Beach is a great pale blue with some green to warm it. It would look lovely with white wood trim.
For me, there is no blue more gorgeous than washed-out aqua. On a wall it's like eternal sunshine inside. The kitchen is the ideal room for this happy color; it's the place you go when you're just waking up and want a positive start to the day. It's also a serene hue, which is lovely for a quiet...
Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee is such a great, versatile color. When used in a dining room, it allows for the food and other elements to be the stars, but it still holds its own. It's also beautiful paired with wallpaper if you're considering an accent wall.
While I'd want the rest of my dream beach house to be a very light blue, I'd want my master bedroom the color of soft, white sand. This one is perfect.
My home office is painted a dark navy, but I love this sapphire blue too. Really, I like any saturated color, so choose one that makes you happy. Blue is my favorite color, and it's also rumored to be the 2013 color of the year, so it was the perfect choice for me.
Most rental homes I have lived in I have been able to repaint. It's a really cheap and easy way to update a space. I especially love to use chalkboard paint, as it adds a bit of a bistro feeling to the home. If you can't paint a wall, why not paint a sheet of wood and simply prop or hang on your...
I want to create a fresh spin on Victorian, so I'm planning to paint the lower cabinets and the island in the kitchen I'm working on a medium gray. Benjamin Moore's Cape May Cobblestone fits that description.
Vivid colors like emerald green and turquoise will give us a much-needed pop in 2012. Ming Jade by Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite tones of emerald, and I think it would look great on an accent wall.
This sunny yellow paint would make a playroom feel warm, happy and inviting. Even better, it's nontoxic, odorless and scrubbable (which means it will stand up to peanut butter, crayons or whatever else your kids would wipe all over it).
Sunny Side Up Paint
Choose a color that makes you feel comfortable. Strong colors can give you a burst of energy at times, but if you spend long periods of time exposed to them, they can become very tiring.
I like the tranquil vibe this paint color provides. Need to feel relaxed at home? Paint your walls with Benjamin Moore's gorgeous gray "Sea Haze." Namaste.
If you need a break from yard work, take the improvement efforts inside and freshen up a room with white. This is one of my favorite whites, but there are so many out there to choose from.
One wall of my foyer is painted in this color. The hall bathroom is currently a light sea glass blue color, but I think a fresh coat of paint will be necessary once the bathroom renovations are complete. My hubby and I think that this light gray will be perfect.
Ashwood by Benjamin Moore is a very versatile color, and it perfectly suits small spaces or spaces lacking light. It also works beautifully on cabinets.
