2122-40This playroom feature wall has useful built-in storage and a dark wood accent wall, creating somewhat of a media section.

The baskets on the lower shelves are painted in Benjamin Moore’s 2122-40 Smoke and stencilled in white numbers. They could be painted in multiple colours, even if only in the gray tones. Tester pots are the perfect paint size for projects like this.

Gray Islands

Is your kitchen white, bland and boring? Updating hardware can help and give it an instant facelift, but so can painting out your kitchen island in a gray tone. You probably notice it happening a lot in kitchen design these days, because it really does add a lot of style to a kitchen.Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 3.39.37 AMTry CSP-45 Street Chic by Benjamin Moore

The Victorian also has a gray island in the kitchen, that contrast with the stark white wall cabinets. The gray exterior paint, and the island paint are the same color: C2's  Titanium, but with different percentages.
