Silver Marlin 2139-50from our Color Trends 2018 palette creates a serene office space for creative thoughts to bloom.
There is a whole new trend in playrooms and they aren’t painted in primary colours. These rooms have inspirational words and fun added touches, they can be easily transformed back into any type of space when kids outgrow them.
This playroom is in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-500 Ranchwood, it is a neutral taupe that will flow with most colour schemes.
Use natural elements like sisal, wood and metal to give texture and interest. Who doesn’t want a tipi in their play room?
This 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.
These built-in’s are great for storage and the design would work for most rooms, all you need to do is add a fun rug, table/chairs and a chalkboard and you have a little class room to play. This room is painted in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-765 Avalon.

Did you grow up believing that ceilings had to be white — or, at the very least, a paler version of the wall color.
Dark ceilings, even black ones…can hide a multitude of sins, call attention to something you want to emphasize or instill a touch of drama.
Here are some reasons to consider painting your ceiling black.
To add drama. Take away the furnishings and finishes in this room, and you’ve got a pretty humble plasterboard box. The black ceiling adds architectural interest where none existed and makes the space feel far more interesting.
To draw attention to a view. Sure, this view would be beautiful even if the ceiling were white. But notice how the black surface draws your eyes toward the vista, kind of like a red carpet unfurling in front of you?
To conceal a mess. It can be tough to hide all the ductwork in a basement ceiling. Covering it with drywall can rob you of precious headroom (not to mention money). An inexpensive solution is to paint the whole thing black. It won’t eliminate the problem entirely, but it’ll make the mechanics far less prominent without lowering the ceiling’s height.
To make a ceiling look taller. Sounds like a contradiction, right? But when you can’t see the boundaries of a room, it can appear bigger. This is especially true if you paint the tops of the walls black as well.
Because the walls are black. If you’re going to take the plunge and paint your walls black, do you really want to wimp out on the ceiling? The bedroom here is dramatic and supremely sexy, but it wouldn’t have worked half as well without the black ceiling.
The same holds true for this bath. Since bathrooms are self-contained spaces, and people don’t usually spend a great deal of time in them, they’re an excellent place to try something a little bit daring.
Because the rest of the room is black and white. Chaplin, houndstooth, The New Yorker — some things just look better in black and white. In this case the black ceiling is a nice echo of the black floor, and the stringent motif makes the few touches of color pop.
