I’ve been working with roofers, painters, and landscape artists for months, trying to revamp our family home. And because of this project, I have been to Benjamin Moore paint store more times than I want to admit, and visited countless Plant Nursery stores, although the later I absolutely consider therapy, the paint store exercise has stressed me out to no end. Because what you see on a paper swatch and adore, sometimes isn’t the true colors on the walls.
Just so you understand I’ve been going back and forth between gray and all sorts of neutrals for the base with a creamy trim and I have come dead-stop at the front door. Because my inner artist is aching for bold red, but my attempts to blend in the neighborhood is opting for navy-ish if not black and then of course I came across this article, now leaning towards charcoal gray. Can you sense my struggle?
Black: elegant, powerful, and prestigious
White: simple, crisp, and pristine
Gray: timeless and classic
Navy: authoritative and trustworthy
Green: calm, quiet, and soothing
Red: commanding, dynamic, and engaging
Yellow: warm, welcoming, and optimistic
Pink Lavender: youthful and spirited
Natural stain: rustic and comforting
