Benjamin Moore Plymouth Rock aka Valley Forge Tan

Hello, friends!  Welcome to Huesday Tuesday.  Here you’ll find a weekly post of favorite paint colors.

Today I’m featuring one of my new favorite neutrals, Benjamin Moore Plymouth Rock, aka Valley Forge Tan. It’s a medium taupe that goes great with natural linen fabrics and can be used with virtually any accent color.

Like any color, this one changes in appearance depending on the time of day and the lighting conditions.  Always look at a color swatch in the space you’re painting.  Or even better, purchase a sample pint and paint a large section of your wall.  It really does help in the color selection process.

If you need help choosing a color for your space, I’m available for online color consulting.  Go here to learn more about this service.

Here’s a sneak peek of our recently remodeled hall bathroom with Plymouth Rock on the walls.  I chose the color because it was a shade darker than the linen shower curtain we used in this space. And it’s a nice complement to our dark floors and vanity.  Plus I really like the fact that I can use any accent color in here.

*In case you’re interested, I’ll be doing a complete reveal of our remodeled bath at the end of the week. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose an option to follow if you want to see the whole room. Or look on the right side of the page to subscribe via email.*  Update:  go here for the full reveal.

 In this master bedroom of interior designer Alex Berlin, the Plymouth Rock even looks good with various shades of pinks, as well as the white bedding and curtains.

Not just for walls, this dresser looks great painted with Plymouth Rock.  It contrasts nicely with the blue gray walls and the white trim and wood floors.  A very classic look, for sure.
