Well it may have not been Eleanor’s cup of tea, we love these primary tones to brighten up the exterior of her house. I think the closest colours from Benjamin Moore’s own colour palette are Delightful Yellow, Heritage Red, and Sailor’s Sea Blue.
While I don’t recommend painting your whole house in these, you can always introduce them in your front door, planters, furniture, or even planting flowers to match. The sky’s the limit. Eleanor tested. Chidi approved!
Painting your ceiling can seem like a tough task. Learn the best way to paint a ceiling with Benjamin Moore’s simple steps.
Keep in mind that the ceiling should be done prior to painting the walls. You will need a two and a half inch angle sash brush, painters tape, a nine-inch roller sleeve, an extension pole, a pan, a ladder, and Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint.
By 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.

One of our in-store designers Meg from Joy Studio recently shared with us the before/after pics of a home she chose paint colours for a few years ago. The paint colours on this home were dated and boring. The homeowners wanted to go for a classic look and bring in some colour tones from nature, as their home backs on to a ravine.
Meg chose a Benjamin Moore tone in a muted green taupe for the stucco CC-540 Stampede, the trim and garage are a shade or two lighter CC-530 Brandon Beige. She had to work with the existing soffits & fascia which were in a yellow tone, so the green/brown worked great. For an elegance look, the front doors and shutters were painted in the darkest chocolate you will find in the Benjamin Moore colour preview collection (2114-10 Bitttersweet Chocolate). It gives the look of a rich and dark stained wood.
Don’t forget, one of the most important components of this project was the amazing paint crew that brought it to fruition.
