Paint Ponder: Wythe Blue

Benjamin Moore’s historical hue Wythe Blue HC-143, was their color of the year in 2012.  I still love it. It’s very Americana and as BM accurately captured, “It has universal appeal, never goes out of style, and is overwhelmingly chosen as a color favorite across North America.  It evokes the sea and sky, physically clams us, and symbolizes trust and commitment.”

Paint Ponder: Pale Powder

I always LOVE a soft blue bedroom.  An beautiful paint color to try? Farrow & Ball’s Pale Powder.  “If you want something clean and neutral but more interesting than white, try this whisper of a color that goes green or blue in different lights.  It adds character and a bit of age, it’s easy to live with, and it makes a smoother transition to the adjacent rooms, which are full of color.”  Designer Katie Ridder in House Beautiful.

Paint Ponder: Chappell Green

I have always loved the feel of Farrow & Ball paints.  They have a soft but historical feel, while being very purposeful and updated for every room.  “You want to feel that you’re part of a tradition but not stuck in the past”, Kurek Jones told House Beautiful about his 19th century row house he covered in Chappell Green.  I love it.

Paint Ponder: Healing Aloe

Designer Alex Papschristidis was right on with his comments on Benjamin Moore’s Healing Aloe paint color for a bedroom in House Beautiful:  “I tend to like colors with a bit of gray in them. They’re more sophisticated. This can look blue or gray or green depending on the time of day. It’s got that Swedish thing — a tranquil, soft elegance. Beautiful with chalky-white wood and a bit of gilt. Red and aqua would also be divine.”
