Paint Ponder: Harbor Haze

I’m a bit smitten with beachy blues right now, and Benjamin Moore’s Harbor Haze 2136-60 might be just the fix.  It works amazingly well with sand and off white and can be a consideration for just about any room.  Says Allison Caccoma of the color, “”Nothing is more soothing in a bedroom than this celestial blue. Pretty and fresh, it looks beautiful paired with virtually any color. I would put soft floral prints by Robert Kime or Bennison on the furniture. The room would feel like a garden, with the walls becoming the sky.”

Paint Ponder: Silver Lining

Time and time again, I have heard Dallas realtors recommend this white paint. Pratt & Lambert Silver Lining 32-32.   And I can see why.  It’s soft and contemplative, making it easy to blend just about anything with it. Plus, light plays beautifully with it making those windows a true focal point.  Works great as a trim color too.

Paint Ponder: Clear Skies

It’s summer and there is nothing better than clear blue skies.  Clear Skies 2054-70, a fun blue by Benjamin Moore, brings the spirit of the beach straight to your home.  It works great with texture and shines when offset by white.  I love how they mixed it with stripes for a nursery too.

Part of Benjamin Moore’s historical collection, Sandy Hook Gray HC-108 might be the perfect neutral.  Warm, but fresh it will work great in a living room, bedroom or bath.  And don’t forget to consider it as an exterior color.

Paint Ponder: Ballroom Blue

“Even if you’re nowhere near the sea, this color makes you feel as if you’re being lulled to sleep by the waves. It’s not blue, not green, but somewhere in between. You will sleep soundly and wake up refreshed.” said Designer Susan Zises Green on Farrow & Ball Ballroom Blue 24 in House Beautiful.  I couldn’t agree more.

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…
