HC-170 Stonington Gray

Who doesn’t love a fresh feeling laundry room?

We had a customer who wants her laundry room to look like the photo above.  We suggest using a nice Historical Gray like HC-170 Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore.  It’s calming, neutral and will go with any accessories.Room designed by Sarah Richardson

Paint color (radiator): “Nightfall” by Benjamin Moore

w1000_h1000-1PINK, RASPBERRY & GREEN 
Placing a dark room between two gelato-light ones mitigates the overall intensity and creates an unexpected and enchanting box-within-a-box effect.

Paint color (study): “Delicious berry” by Behr
Paint color (bedroom): “Pear” by Behr

w1000_h1000-2GRAY, CREAM & TAUPE

More intriguing than white, less scary than all-out color, this trio of grown-up neutrals gives an entryway a layered, slightly Swedish sophistication.

Paint color (gray wall): “Blackened estate emulsion” by Farrow & Ball 
Paint color (cream trim and baseboard): “Pointing oil eggshell” Farrow & Ball

PINK, TAUPE & WHITE

It’s slightly more labor-intensive than popping open a can of latex, but lime wash (a pure concoction with no harmful VOCs) yields a gorgeous, sun-kissed stucco look that’s been prized for centuries. It’s eco-friendly too!

Paint color (wall): “Fleur (custom color) interno lime wash” by Sydney Harbour Paint Co.
Paint color (baseboard): “Sableux (custom color) interno lime wash” by Sydney Harbour Paint Co.

Light Gray Flooring

With Benjamin Moore’s OC-117 Simple White as Benjamin Moore’s colour of 2016, it’s no surprise that it looks so good with light gray flooring.

This sample from Floortrends really is a new type of look for the future of design, more casual, with an oil rubbed finish. No stain and re-finish required, just a coal of oil and this floor can withstand heavy traffic.  Going lighter and with a matte finish, allows you to hide anything.

Below are a few examples pairing white and light gray, we will be seeing a whole lot more of this look in the next few years. Dark flooring has been trendy for years, but they show every scrath or piece of dog/cat fur or dust.

AF-715 Dolphin

fafcc1940a33b4351afe99e51e69ed04By now we all know that gray is the new black of home decor. It’s neutral, still warm without any yellow or orange undertones and is extremely calming. This warm gray AF-715 Dolphin is from Benjamin Moore’s Affinity Colour Collection and it is a classic.

This bathroom is stunning and the wall tile is the jumping off point, its where the wall colour came from and ties in the creamy counter tops.

These barn doors have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin, so much warmer than the traditional white doors.

We love how the lower cabinets and island in this open concept kitchen have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin. Looks great with the white walls and warm hardwood floors.
