Colors to Crave
New-to-Dallas paint guru reveals 5 colors you need in your home
Trends come and go, but timeless hues are always a good idea for your home. Timeless doesn’t have to mean boring, though, as evidenced by this year’s most popular colors. The single most important way to get your classic colors to pop is by making sure the paint job is excellent, and now that’s easier than ever.
Paintzen, an online service that does all the work of finding a painter, ordering the materials, and managing the project, recently expanded to Dallas. It will even help if you’re going the DIY route, delivering everything you need to get the job done.
Now that the hard part’s taken care of, you can focus on the fun part: the colors. Whether you’re looking to make your mark on a new space or refresh your current abode, here are five Benjamin Moore paint colors to consider for a space that’s on-trend, elegant, and comfortable.
It’s currently the color of the year, but no matter the season, it’s always in style. It can easily be paired with both warm and cool shades, and can serve as either the primary color or as an accent to other tints. It's your best bet for starting fresh, or while prepping a home for sale.
Gray is the new neutral, and one of the most popular choices in homes nationwide. Beautifully accented with the extremes — bright white and black — gray is a gorgeous backdrop. Gray Owl specifically is a soft and gentle shade which allows your home to appear bright and happy, which is sometimes a concern when using gray wall paint.
Kittery Point Green
For when you want a neutral that’s not really a neutral. Reminiscent of a previous “color of the year” called Guilford Green, Kittery Point Green can operate as a neutral, pairing with cool blues and purples or warm golds and maroons.
When you are looking for a dark yet warm accent, think dark brown. Brownies, espresso, pumpernickel bread — all share that yet warm and cozy feeling. Benjamin Moore’s French Press delivers that feeling into your home.
Taupes and beiges are always a favorite in the home, and this shade by Benjamin Moore, reminiscent of sand dunes, lends a soft and warm feeling to any room. Although it stands beautifully on its own, it also pairs well with a variety of other colors, making it great for renovations of any scale.
