Favorite Paint Color ~ Marblehead Gold

Happy Hues-day, friends! Welcome to Favorite Color Day on the blog!  Each Tuesday (aka Hues-day) a different color is featured here.  Today’s color is Benjamin Moore Marblehead Gold, HC-11.  

Marblehead Gold is a rich gold with a mustard hue.  It makes a bold statement and is a great complement to many other colors.

Do you want to make a bold statement on your ceiling?  How about painting it with Marblehead Gold?  I’m not sure I could live with it, but it does look good in this room.

If you want an old-fashioned, rich color on the exterior of your home, Marblehead Gold is great for that too!  Here it is paired here with Navajo White and Black on a historic home, and it looks stunning!

So what do you think of this color?  Too bold?  Too gold? Just right?  

In the right space, I think it would look great.  I’d recommend it for a kitchen, dining room, or living room.  It would also make a great accent wall (or ceiling).  

Have you used it anywhere?  Do tell.

As with all paint colors, I always recommend sampling it first before you purchase a gallon.  And never choose your paint colors based on a computer image.  They always look different in reality.  Online photos are a great place to start, though!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

  1. I have a sample card of Marblehead Gold and love it. I'm looking for a warm color for two large planters near my front door, as well as, my front door. Since you're familiar with this color, do you feel it would work well as an outdoor focal point/front door in full sun? Thanks for your help!
