Tips for finding the right Benjamin Moore paint color
Choosing the right paint color can be frustrating and tricky. Here are a few
tips for getting it right:
- Look for ideas in magazines, on pinterest, or home decorating websites.
- Start with an inspiration piece like an area rug, sofa, or bedding.
- Look at your favorite swatches in the actual room that you’ll be painting.
- Narrow down your choices to less than 5.
- Test the color(s) in the room that will be getting painted. You can use
tester samples or
peel and stick color samples.
- Look at the painted samples at various times of the day and on sunny and
cloudy days. Lighting can make a color look quite different.
- There is no perfect paint color. If you end up hating one that you choose,
repainting isn’t that difficult so don’t stress out over it.

I've always had a soft spot for teal, so that would be my favourite of the bunch! But I wouldn't hesitate to use them all – lol!
Agree with the teal! That's my garden accent color. Gotta bring it inside, too -:D
