Our Top 7 Paint Picks | Benjamin Moore
I’m going to let you in on a secret, We have over a 1000 paint samples in our office but we have a select few that we love to use over and over because they’re so versatile and can be used in any space. Paint can seem like a super easy way to update and refresh a space and you’re right, but walking through home depo or Benjamin moore we see arguing couples or just downright puzzled, sometimes pained faces.
Neutrals are a great pallet, that never really go out of style. They can add to an airy atmosphere and allow you to be a bit more bright and daring with accessories. In our contemporary 20th Ave Residence, we used Benjamin Moore’s Designer White on the walls, ceiling & millwork. This bright white creates a canvas that allows for the families’ art to be highlighted, making their kids crafts corner a fun feature.

We all know paint colour in your home can affect everything from your mood to your furniture choices. Think about how you want your home to feel, what first impression do you want it to make. Do you want a cozy feeling? Maybe go with a warmer taupe hue. If you want something fresh and airy, you could go with a cool grey or a bright white. You may want to use a courageous colour that will reflect your personality. Calm and cool? Go for blue or mints.
