Fall Color Consults – Everyone is painting!

October seems to be the month for color consultations.  We’re starting to migrate back inside, my phone is ringing and wall color is the hot topic.  One of my clients will be doing BM-Stardust with BM-White Dove trim.  A gorgeous combo and I can’t wait to see the outcome.  I couldn’t talk them into Farm Fresh (below) on the ceiling……. the ultimate.

This client  is also doing a tranquil and soothing bedroom in Nimbus Gray (above) with White Dove trim.  Although it comes off as a blue, it’s in the grey family and is very soft, pretty and serene but can also be dramatic depending on how it’s used.

Another client is doing a BM-Conventry Gray living room (BM-Revere Pewter is an amazing gray as well).  With over 200 Benjamin Moore shades of gray (well over 50), Coventry Gray is one of my favorites.  It’s an extremely versatile, fresh color with blue undertones and is being used as a neutral in her living room.

In a bedroom, the debate is over Sherwin Williams 6415-Hearts of Palm, much softer than the old granny smith apple, yet still bright and cheerful and 7732-Lemongrass, sophisticated and chic especially when paired with black and tan.

Nobody has bitten on the Benjamin Moore color of the year, 331-Lemon Souffle …… just not feeling the soft yellow yet.
