In this colour review video of Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore, I share:

- Beautiful colour combinations to inspire you for your decorating project
After you watch the video, if you would like all this information conveniently laid out for you in one place and have even more paint colour combinations to use with Palladian Blue, take a look at my new Essential Colour Guide. A must have for any colour enthusiast or design professional.
While I love this colour, I’ve not actually used it yet. Where I would love to specify Palladian Blue for a project would be in a washroom, laundry room or a bedroom. This tone is so fresh and serene, you could use it in any room of your home.
Palladian Blue Colour Review Video
This blue-green paint colour may appear more one colour than the other, depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.
As you can see below, it’s when we start to look at comparisons to other colours, that it becomes very eye opening.
Soft Fern 2144-40 & Gossamer Blue 2123-40
It’s only when we compare colours that we can truly understand the tones and whether they lean more one way or another on the colour spectrum.
When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences.
When I hold my large paint boards up to a decorative element such as fabrics, wallpaper or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes much more clear as to which colour will work best.
Best Whites To Pair With Palladian Blue
White Dove OC-17 by Benjamin Moore
You may recall that White Dove is one of my all time favourite Benjamin Moore paint colours. It was one of the first Colour Reviews I did – read all about it and watch the video here.
If you are interested to learn more about the most popualr white paint colour check out the White Dove Essential Colour Guide.
As one of my go to colours I have used White Dove in various design projects. Here it is in a stunning dining room design project.
Oxford White CC-30 by Benjamin Moore
Oxford White is not as creamy as White Dove. It’s a little on the cooler side, but not as cool as the next white we recommend, White Diamond. We used Oxford White in our Burlington client’s kitchen here for their cabinetry colour. Because it’s a cooler white it worked wonderfully with the gorgeous carrara marble herringbone backsplash.
White Diamond OC-61 by Benjamin Moore
White Diamond is the coolest of these three whites. I used this Benjamin Moore white paint colour for the ceiling and trim in my living room because we painted the walls Flint by BM which is a dark blue-gray. Therefore, the White Diamond being a blue-white worked spectacularly well with the contrasting colour tone.
I tend to have around 10 white paint colours that are my best whites for trim and ceilings. You don’t need to see all of the thousands of whites available to you to get the right one. You also do not need to mix two different whites or use only a certain percentage of a paint colour to get the one best for you.
I can assure 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.
