Perfectly Planned Interior Design Vignettes

6 years ago
I've wanted to write a book about this forever.  Why doesn't Benjamin Moore do a book with rooms painted in all of the colors the company offers? Wouldn't it be a best seller itself, and also help sell a lot of paint?  Or maybe they like that it takes me (and you I suspect!) several tries to get just the right shade. No, I don't want to think that about my favorite paint company.  So, since I will clearly never have time to write a book, I will list my personal picks here. [And I know there are other great paint companies out there, especially Annie Sloan for furniture and cabinets, but I like to stick with what I know for walls, which is Benjamin Moore].
Many of these photos are of my house, but the majority are from DecorPad.  However, I have used every single one of these at home or for clients, which is why I can recommend them without hesitation.  Here goes:
