Happy first day of spring! Even though it sure doesn’t feel like it… I’m not gonna lie, I’m getting pretty tired of tons of layers, hoodies, and hats. I know you are, too. I’m hoping by the time the weather reaches anywhere above 60, I’ll be out hiking, gardening, or grilling. But, lucky for YOU, all I do is spend my time creating color palettes on olioboard, which I love.
This week I’ve put together a little foolproof color palette. Here I listed the benjamin moore colors, and where they should be used. Main walls, trim color, ceiling and accents. For those of you who don’t know what should go with what, warm vs. cool, etc. Don’t worry. I’ve done the work for you. If this post gets some hype, I’ll make more boards.
I think its pretty self-explanatory, and very widely used tones. The colors all work with the main wall color, REVERE PEWTER. This color is a great fool-proof gray for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time searching through a million color chips. Done. White trim goes great with cool tones. But, in this case the best trim color is SNOWFALL WHITE. (You may very well use this white on your ceiling too) Choose a satin or semi-gloss for the trim paint, and an eggshell or matte for the walls.

If you decide you want an accent wall, or a little pop of color to liven things up, look at KENDALL CHARCOAL, or LEMON MERINGUE. Please, my good friends, remember you do not always have to use an accent wall. You can, and should use these colors anywhere in the room to pull the palette together. (And repeat them throughout the house!) Pillows, rugs, bedspreads, picture frames are a few. (How its shown in the picture as well)
Here’s another fun benjamin moore color palette I put together. Two actually. Decorating seems so much easier when we just step back and look at how the colors balance.
Want your own color/room board? I know someone you could ask…
So there it is folks, what you’ve always wanted. More color in your life. Hope you’re feeling a little more spring in your step!
