Beautiful. Natural. Modern. I have always been one of Candice Olson’s biggest design fans!
I love her style and use of color. When Candace came out with her list of her five “Go To” Benjamin Moore colors, I could not wait to check them out. As soon as I found them, I pinned them to my pinterest color board. And there they sat! Then I heard someone comment on the colors yesterday and I realized I have not even taken a good look at them yet! Have you?
You can tell by her designs that she loves working with natural materials in her designs such as wood, stone, linen and wool.
A lot of the colors that she uses come from items that you see in nature. Her color list was chosen around colors such as stormy skies and misty, watery greens. All of these color choices are from Benjamin Moore.
Nimbus Gray, a cool gray-blue which reminds Candace of stormy skies that can be used as dramatic color or serene.
Gray Mirage- 2142-50, a serene misty gray-green that Candace loves. Works well with many different colors. This color looks beautiful with your wood floors and trim.
Pale oak OC-20 is a beautiful natural beige color, that Candace likes to use with natural stone such as limestone and travertine. Pale oak is a very light neutral with a slight blush (pink/red) undertone.
Niveous OC-36 is a gorgeous cream hue. It is a warm neutral with yellow undertones that works well with natural elements:
And last but not least- Cloud White OC-130.
Ms. Olson did comment on how she loved to work with Niveous for the walls with Cloud White on the ceiling and trim.
I love this:
I tried to find photos of her rooms that the color name was listed to share but I could not find any.
Love this too!:
Love them all!:
Aren’t all these rooms so gorgeous? I think I will take a closer look at her neutrals and maybe consider using them on my next project. What do you think of her go-to colors? Do you use any of them regularly (beside cloud white)?
