2131-30 Lead Gray

This is such a classic look and easy to achieve, especially for small spaces. Did you know that dark colors in a small room will blur the boundaries and look even bigger?!

We love this idea for a library or den, even a living room. It’s simple, everything is painted out the same colour. Shelves, mantel on fireplace, walls, trim/doors.

2131-30 Lead Gray by Benjamin Moore, is a moody, midnight shade of deep grey that adds a layer of masculinity to a library or gentleman’s study.

No space suited for this deep moody blue, why not paint out some built shelves or free standing shelving unit?

A Fresh Beachy Office

We would like to feature an office design by the girls at Joy Studio, that showcases a few of our fav Benjamin Moore paint colours.  

Meg’s client had a boring light yellow office and was inspired by her new beachy artwork to make a big change in her office. They chose sandy off white and beachy turquoise paint colours to pull together her new space. They then designed a custom built in unit with a built in desktop, this would house all of her equipment and keep the room clutter free.  Soft creamy and beachy accessories all brought the space together.

Let a neutral palette serve as the base for an eclectic mix of black-and-white and colorful artwork. Here Benjamin Moore used Sparrow AF-720 in ben (flat) for the wall and Pashmina AF-100 in ben (semi-gloss) for the wainscoting and trim.
