Get your own fan deck

Grab your own Williamsburg color fan deck to see all the true colors of this versatile collection.

The soft aqua and neutral tan with the crisp trim look so heavenly. It’s very reminiscent of homes found in Williamsburg.

Upper Walls:  CW-585  Ewing Blue, Lower Walls:  CW-30  Market Square Shell, Ceiling:  CW-595  Chesapeake Blue, Trim:  CW-5  Harwood Putty

Benjamin Moore Tyler Gray

 Tyler Gray is a favorite neutral in the collection.  Much like the ever-popular Revere Pewter, it would pair nicely with almost any other color.

Walls:  CW-50  Tyler Gray, Ceiling:  CW-650  Palace Pearl

Williamsburg Wythe Blue

The Williamsburg Wythe Blue in the back of the bookcases really makes a statement. It’s a nice contrast and all of the decor items really stand out against it.

Shelves:  Bracken Cream CW-105, Back of shelves:  Williamsburg Wythe Blue CW-590 

Cornwallis Red Williamsburg Paint Color

Talk about a color that says “Wow”!  That Cornwallis Red is a showstopper!  I love the way it pops against the Washington Blue.

Walls:  Washington Blue  CW-630, Highboy:  Cornwallis Red  CW-315

Benjamin Moore Carter Gray

Carter Gray is such a striking, bold color and looks great with the blue and green bottles and the orange accents in this room.

Walls:  Carter Gray  CW-80, Trim:  Capitol White  CW-10

Spotwood Teal and Everard Blue

This wall color is wonderful!  If you’ve visited Williamsburg or any other similar historical sites, you know that the paint colors used back then were very different from what we use today.  The colors then were vibrant and clear.  Think bright greens, blues, reds, etc. 

Walls:  Spotswood Teal  CW-545. Trim:  Everard Blue  CW-575

Benjamin Moore Harwood Putty

You just can’t go wrong with Harwood Putty.  It’s a fabulous white with the slightest touch of cream.

Walls:  Harwood Putty  CW-5

Williamsburg Stone Paint Color

The Williamsburg Stone color is another great neutral that would go with most any other color.

Walls:  Williamsburg Stone  CW-25, Doors:  Mopboard Black  CW-680, Trim:  Harwood Putty  CW-5

Williamsburg Palace Pearl Paint

Stairs and Wainscotting:  Williamsburg Wythe Blue  CW-590, Walls:  Palace Pearl  CW-650, Back Hall:  Claret  CW-305

Williamsburg Damask Yellow Paint Color

Walls and trim:  Damask Yellow  CW-400

Williamsburg Mopboard Black

    1. Aren't they gorgeous? I'm sure I'll be finding something soon that "needs" to be repainted, just so I can use one of these colors!

  1. I love that Carter Gray too! It goes against everything I'm trying to do in my house right now (lighten things up) but it's gorgeous. Thanks for all the inspiration… I have several rooms on the "to-paint" list.
