Paint Perspective

After yesterday’s post explaining why some designers and homeowners don’t share paint colors, I thought I would share some trusted paint colors that many people love.

There is a lot of paint out there and a lot of ways for it to be formulated. For instance, a house painted in Benjamin Moore’s White Dove may photograph¬†completely differently than how it looks in real life. The lighting¬†matters and the lighting changes from house to house, room to room, or hour to hour. It takes hard work to find the right shade and finish. Here are some suggestions for a good place to start.
I am mainly focusing on whites and shutter colors!
