Maria Killam’s VIP Colour Collection

Neutrals are great and they definitely have a place in interior design and decor, but bold colours are so much more exciting, aren’t they?

I’m doing another unboxing video, it’s becoming one of my favourite things to do!  This time I’m opening up a brand spanking new set of Maria Killam’s painted boards of her VIP Collection.

This is another fabulous set of 50 large colour boards, but this collection is a selection of Maria’s favourite neutrals, colours and darks from Benjamin Moore.

Love my large painted colour boards and want your own set?

VIP Collection

In this collection, there are colours such as Hale Navy (a personal fav of mine!), Classic Gray and Flint.  Below are interior decorating projects where I’ve used all of these colours.


I did a colour review of Hale Navy that you can check out here.

The dining room above was painted White Dove with the niche wall and ceiling painted Hale Navy.

These two rooms are both in my own home. The first is our living room and the second is my son’s bedroom.

To gain even more colour confidence, Maria also teaches her systems on understanding undertones all across North America. I attended her Colour workshop in 2012 for the first time and then again in 2018.

Not only is investing in this hands-on workshop fabulous for gaining confidence in specifying colours, but the course is also a wonderful opportunity for networking and meeting other colour enthusiasts from all around the world.

I recently interviewed Maria about her colour course. If you are thinking about attending her class, watch the video here to learn more about what’s involved.

    Yes!!! Can’t wait to see more navy. You can’t see it, but I’m doing a happy dance right now.

      HAHA, I don’t think there could ever be enough Hale Navy in the world. 🙂

    This is super helpful! I don’t have a swatch book open right now, does the Classic Gray have yellow undertones?

    • Claire Jefford

      Hey Kelly! Classic Gray has a green undertone. Cheers for watching!

    Loved everything about this and learning about Maria and her work. She is now definitely on my list of “musts” in 2019. And that Flint hue is gorgeous.

    Thanks for the great info, Claire!

    Can I use Hale Navy as a feature wall with the rest of the room done in gray owl? Or would you suggest a different blue or gray?

    • Claire Jefford

      Overall, as Gray Owl has a blue undertone, Hale Navy would work with that paint colour for a feature wall. Be sure to tie in other tones of dark blue so there is flow within the space. Happy decorating!
