Paint Ponder: Kingsport Gray

Cozy is often a word that comes to mind when using Benjamin Moore’s HC-86 Kingsport Gray. It has a regal, equestrian twist that brings a traditional feel to a space.  It works great with BM accent colors 2162-40 Peanut Shell and 918 White Rock. Take a look….

Paint Ponder: Silhouette

While no ones really wants to do beige anymore, how about adding some richness to the equation?  I love the this deep dark chocolate color, with a tiny hint of reddish purple. Benjamin Moore Silhouette AF-655.  It definitely makes a statement without going overboard…

Paint Ponder: Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

Marsala.  That’s the choice of the color of the 2015 from the color experts at Pantone.  They believe this color (18-1438) will influence fashion, home decor and graphic design trends next year.  Pantone described the color in a press release last Thursday as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.  Much like the fortified wine that give Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling mean, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.  This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing.” What do you think?  Do you love it more than 2014 Radiant Orchid or 2013 Emerald?
