Today I’m sharing our whole home Benjamin Moore paint color scheme from our renovated forest house. As I mentioned, we painted the majority of the walls and all of the trim in our house a soft white which I colour matched most closely to Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. This is a beautiful, very popular, fresh and crisp white by Benjamin Moore that is not too blue in tone so it’s still warm and welcoming.
We added a pop of charcoal grey on our fireplace in the living room, as well as on an accent wall in the adjoining TV area. I think the colour really accentuated the fireplace and added a touch of elegance and sophistication to what could have been a dated looking focal point in our room. The closest Benjamin Moore grey to the charcoal hue that I chose is called, simply, “Gray”.
The walls were all white aside from the accent colour that we added to the vertical shiplap installed behind the vanity and toilet. I chose a tranquil and misty tone that I colour matched to Benjamin Moore’s Woodlawn Blue. In the upstairs hallway as well as in the basement family room we painted a very light, airy, fresh but slightly warm grey tone matched to Benjamin Moore Horizon. This light warm grey kept things feeling elegant and tranquil while adding some dimension in these spaces that might have felt a bit cold had they been painted all pure white.
It is a warm medium grey tone that I think created a tranquil and sophisticated feeling in our kitchen.
