The cool undertones of Sea Salt make it a perfect neutral to pair with cool blues and indigos. We love this look mixed with lot’s of pattern and textures in accesories.

3 Fav Benjamin Moore Taupes

CC-490 Stone Hearth

ec67e680dd00d2d4c2f6bcd1f16f3fceThis popular taupe by Benjamin Moore is warm and has undertones of brown. It’s a light to medium tone and looks fantastic with hardwood flooring and brick when used on exteriors. Looking for a nice neutral tone for a hallway or common area, this taupe will likely work great with the other warm paint colours of adjoining rooms.

HC-87 Ashley Gray

07a4b6e828cee4fd953730a98a483bb5There is a richness to this taupe by Benjamin Moore, that is what makes it a favourite. It’s not dark, but with the deep rich undertones of gray/brown it makes a great cozy living/family room colour (see below).

This Canadian classic is softer than the above taupes, it has more of a gray base and less brown to it. This colour is a favourite for stagers and people selling their homes. It usually compliments most flooring, stone and fabrics.
