Our design concepts included this popular Benjamin Moore colour for the walls in the main living space and Pashmina for the bedroom.

I tend to have around 10 white paint colours that are my best whites for trim and ceilings. You don’t need all of the thousands of whites available to you to get the right one and you definitely don’t need to mix two different whites or use only a certain percentage of paint colour to get the right one for you.

I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists, you just need to know the 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.

    Great review. I like how you suggest colour combinations. I’m currently debating between Edgecomb grey and grey cashmere for my open main floor to complement an accent wall in Aegean Teal.

      Hi Stephanie. Both options sound lovely to pair with Aegean Teal. Good luck in making your decision!

    I wanted to paint Pashmina on my living room accent wall but the paint store said it would not be dark enough and would not go with Revere Pewter that is in my kitchen so they suggested Rockport Gray. I see from your colours it probably would match but we are wondering if you can compare the difference in Pashmina to Rockport Gray. Rockport looks a lot darker than Pashmina and Pashmina looks darker than Revere Pewter. Interested in any information on differences so we can decide. Thanks.

      Hi Janice. Interesting that the paint store told you that about Pashmina not working with Revere Pewter. All 3 of these colours you’ve mentioned are green grays, just slightly different shades and intensity levels. You are correct that Rockport Gray is the darkest (and more green), then Pashmina and then Revere Pewter.

    What color do you suggest for our dark kitchen (no windows) of our hallway/living room is edgecomb gray? I wanted to go lighter but not white dove…we will have white cabinets. Thank you!

      Hi Stephanie. Pull a colour from either your countertops or backsplash, or from a decorative element like a wallpaper or fabric. For example, my counter and backsplash are both the same, Intense White by Caesarstone. There is nothing to pull inspiration from, but that was done on purpose. I wanted to keep the counter simple and bring in fun coloured wallpaper, cabinetry and a custom window valance. In the wallpaper there are many colours, but also some neutral tones, so I picked Collingwood by Benjamin Moore for the walls. It’s a soft, violet beige that quietly compliments everything else in the space. If all else fails, invest in my Edgecomb Gray Perfect Colour Palette guide for more ideas, colours and inspiration. –>
