I know, I know. Same old color blog like the previous week. But, I was soooo stressed last week when I had to decide what you lovely readers would be more interested in- Ben Moore Best Selling Neutrals or Ben Moore Best Selling Blues? I chose neutrals, but I am back to list the blues because I can not get off my mind. Plus, I am going to throw in some greens. This is it though!
Ben Moore’s Best Selling Blues in no particular order:
Silver Mist 1619
A very soft blue, beautiful for a bedroom:
Quiet Moments 1563
A mix of blue, green and gray, this is a very popular paint color:
Beach Glass 1564
Beach Glass is a slightly darker version of Quiet Moments. Also a mix of blue, green and gray where the green seems to be more prominent especially in lower lit areas, as you can see in the two above photos. (maybe it should be filed under green colors?) This is the paint color I first think of when I hear “beach-inspired”:
Amsterdam AF- 550
Amsterdam is a grayish slate blue and is referred to as a ‘European Blue’:
Newburyport Blue HC-155
This is one of my favorite blues. If you are looking for a ‘nautical’ blue, Newburyport Blue will not disappoint. It works well with white and gray and is a great color choice for exterior doors:
Van Deusen Blue HC-156
Another favorite blue of mine. This is one of my first color choices to use for a dining room, kitchen cabinets or an office with either white or stained trim:
Hale Navy HC-154
The darkest and most beautiful blue of them all! I love this color so much, I am using for my new home office, (which is still under construction). But here is an example of another beautiful office painted Hale Navy:
Silver Cloud 2129-70
This very light blue at the top of the color strip, is a soft, barely- there blue. I have not used myself and could not find a photo of it anywhere.
Seattle Gray 2130-70
Another light, light blue found on the top of the color strip sample. If you are just wanting to stick your little toe into color, this might work well for you.
Beacon Gray 2128-60
Last on the Ben Moore best selling blue list is Beacon Gray. A light blue gray that is a little bit darker than the previous two colors:
Light. Blue. Pretty, but reminds me of a nursery blue.
Onward to Benjamin Moore’s Best Selling Greens:
Saybrook Sage HC-114
Sage is a very hot, popular color this year and Saybrook Sage is a perfect sage to use on your walls:
Palladian Blue HC-144
Palladian Blue is one of my favorite bedroom colors. Depending on the light, it can read more green at times and more blue at other times of the day. Very soft and beautiful:
Woodlawn Blue HC-147
Another blue/green gray that tends to show more green on the wall. This is a color I often suggest for ceilings:
Hunter Green 2041-10
People are saying this might be the new black. Very dark color. Great for cabinets and painted furniture:
Nantucket Gray HC-111
A lighter sage color, Nantucket Gray is a very popular color for exteriors:
November Rain 2142-60/OC-50
Part of the off-white collection, November Rain is a soft sage green. A beautiful color!
Camouflage has been on the best selling list for a few years now for good reason, a very versatile and earthy color:
I actually helped a client choose this color today for his bathroom remodel he is working on. The tile was black and gray and the accent tile had a touch of this Camouflage color in it. Gorgeous. Wish I took picture! Duh…
I hope you enjoyed the new line up of colors this week. These are good colors to start with when looking for colors because they are tested and proven winners.
Have a great weekend everyone!
