Share Your Favorite Paint Color!
December 9th, 2008

I am sure all of you have a favorite paint color and company you like to use.  The perfect shade and all the sample tries later need to be shared.

may vary from actual paint colors

I want to start off sharing my favorite color.  Palladian Blue from Benjamin Moore is my fave.  Currently the outside of my house is this color!  I have to admit, I was even scared when they put up the first coat, but nine years later I still love the decision.  The beauty of Palladian Blue is that it switches from blue to a soft green depending on the sunlight and person viewing the color.  I tell people, I am the blue house with yellow shutters and when they arrive, they tell me…….. “blue house, I see green”.

    My favorite it Nantucket Grey from Benjamin Moore. I think it’s more green than grey but just love it in my kitchen!

    I like Kensington Green from Benj Moore. It is in my office and is a nice color to live with all day.

    I think I may have found a new favorite. Beach Glass from Benjamin Moore. I just bought it today. It’s not on the walls yet but it sure looks great in the can!!

    I still love the Dried Moss from Pratt and Lambert that YOU selected for me 8 years ago. (See what happens when you do your job so well!) I have two large windows in my dining room and the muted mossy green walls reflect and become part of the morning gardens on that side of the house…makes you feel like you’re dining outdoors.

    My favorite paint color is Dry Sage by Benjamine Moore. This is a color you picked out for my master bedroom almost eight years ago and I still love it! The greenish hue it cast is very calming. I get so many compliments on it.

    I just recently painted our dining room the 2 colors you recommended- Independent Gold and Compatible Cream from Sherwin Williams.
    The colors together are so refreshing. My dining room also has 3 very large windows so the colors are very complimentary to that of the outdoors! Love them!

    Love the house and colors. Besides the palladium blue, what is the yellow color on the shutters and the door color? Too cute!
