Paint is the one interior design category where your options are truly endless. Perusing the paint chip aisle can be dizzying, and a swatch can only tell you so much about what a colour might look like in your space.
While our design aesthetic is ever-evolving and trends are always shifting, we've narrowed down our five go-to Benjamin Moore paint colours of the moment for your inspiration. Check out how they look in our recent work and imagine building your look around one of these fail-safe picks!
Westmount Kitchen Project.
Dark colours are making a huge comeback! French Beret adds the perfect touch of soft contrast and is one of our favourites for walls and millwork. It's a dark grey with a hint of blue for a more modern, more neutral take on a classic navy.
Leclair Home Living Room Project.
A classic white is always a great idea. Chantilly Lace is one of our most-loved paint colours. It's a clean, crisp, true white without any blue or yellow undertones. We love this colour for walls, ceilings, and trim in any space.
Le Plateau Project.
We're seeing a big shift toward off-white walls. Swiss Coffee is a very warm off-white, perfect for more traditional or transitional spaces. We also love pairing Swiss Coffee with the true white of Chantilly Lace as an accent colour on millwork. The blend adds depth and warmth to a space while keeping it neutral and modern.
One of the many vignettes at LD Shoppe.
Neutral doesn't have to mean white! Thunder is a darker neutral and a more modern alternative to Swiss Coffee that works well in both warm and cool spaces. We love Thunder against a white baseboard or paired with matching trim for a monochromatic look.
Bay Area Project.
We've used black paint colours in our designs for years. Lately, we've been gravitating toward the off-black colour of Blacktop. It's a fantastic way to incorporate high contrast without the starkness of a true black.
DESIGNER TIP: We're currently loving a matte finish on walls and ceilings, paired with an eggshell finish on millwork, trim, and doors. In high traffic areas, we recommend eggshell on the walls and a satin finish on millwork, trim, and doors.
