A cool-toned gray, like Benjamin Moore’s Metropolitan (its 2019 Color of the Year) is a safe bet for the color-averse. The paint company leaned into calming colors last year, and while they aren’t going away anytime soon, they’re predicting the rise of a shade that’s a little more upbeat: “First Light,” a soft, ballet slipper pink that’s designed to cast the room in a rosy glow.
“It’s easy to live with, and easy to love,” says Hannah Yeo, the brand’s color marketing and development manager, explaining that it’s subtle enough that it won’t compete with your existing décor, but it still feels fresh and uplifting. Try this color anywhere you could use a pick-me-up, like the bathroom you trudge into each morning to start your day.
While the colors themselves run the gamut, it seems we’re all searching for the same thing. Maybe you can find it in a paint color. Maybe you can achieve it with a massage and a great glass of rosé (especially if the thought of staring at swatches stresses you out).

Are you planning on putting your house on the market this summer? If so, prepare to dress your home for success. When you are selling a home it is all about style, but not necessarily your own style. This is what makes staging different from interior design and can also make it more challenging. When you stage a home, you want to create an ambiance and lifestyle that appeals to all tastes and styles. Potential buyers need to feel as though they can make the home their own when they purchase it, even though the furnishings and accessories won’t be there when they move in. Homes that are staged sell 50% faster and for 6% more than homes without staging. Read below for some styling tips that will help you see results quickly.
We believe that painting should be an exciting and fun experience, from planning to product purchasing, to application and enjoyment of the finished results.
National Lumber and Babel’s are proud to invite customers to their newly renovated Benjamin Moore stores. From new fixtures to paint, colorways and lighting — the new showroom layout is like a custom design center, rather than a traditional, warehouse-style paint store.
Are you dreaming of freshening your home with new color? Do you detest the smell of wet paint? Today’s Benjamin Moore paints are not what you’ve experienced in the past. Culture has shifted, consumers are now leaning towards more eco-friendly products and companies need to keep up with this growing demand. Home painting projects are no longer just about changing the color of a room. You may have heard low- or zero-VOC as a way to describe many paints in recent advertisements. What are VOC’s, why do they matter, and what does it have to do with being “green”?
When choosing a paint for your latest project, the decisions don’t end with color. The finish you choose is just as important. If you are unfamiliar, “finish” (or sheen) refers to the amount of shine the paint will have when it dries. Below is a list of all paint finishes available in Benjamin Moore Paints. These are listed from the least amount of sheen (flat) to the highest amount of sheen (high gloss). A flat paint has no light reflection and each sheen will gradually show more reflection the further you go across this list.
Flat → Matte → Eggshell → Pearl → Satin → Semi-Gloss → Gloss → High gloss
