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.”
Whether you use it as a flat paint or take it up to a luscious lacquer, Benjamin Moore’s Seaweed will take your room from boring to statement in seconds. Try it with some gray paint (think HC-82 Bennington gray) or pair it with some warm gold accent pieces and its absolutely stunning….
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.
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.
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.”
