Paint is such a foundational element in any room — it’s the backdrop for all of your interior decor! It’s amazing how a small difference in shade can make a big difference in the style and feel of your space. The good news is, with new colors coming out every season, there’s always something new to try. But we also know that can be overwhelming. So we thought we’d give you some inspiration to start.

We polled our designers to find out their current go-to hues. As we’ve mentioned, we only use Benjamin Moore paint, so all the colors and photos here are via Benjamin Moore.


Designer Allison’s go-to paint color is Witching Hour 2120-30. She especially loves to use it for window trims to create a nice contrast in the room and make everything else stand out.


Angela admires Admiral Blue 2065-10. It’s a strong color but still firmly planted in the realm of traditional or transitional styles. Angela puts it to use in both interiors and exteriors.  “For exteriors, I would use it on the front door, and on the walls for an interior space, preferably the living room/family room,” she says.


New York-based designer Ashley is on trend! Her pick is also Benjamin Moore’s color of the month, Metropolitan AF-690. Her favorite place for this fun shade of grey? The bathroom!

Blue Fescue Q6 is DC-designer Bita’s pick. “This color can be used as an accent in the bedroom or living room, giving more dimension and depth,” she tells us.


Jeanie is “Head Over Heels” for Benjamin Moore AF-250.  She suggests using the paint color for a sophisticated living room. She especially loves the contrast when it’s accented by black wood furniture. So chic!


New Yorker Paulina is totally crushing on Pale Oak OC-20 right now. This light taupe lets you enjoy the airiness of a lighter color, but with an added subtle warmth. It’s just the right amount of livable elegance.  

Stephanie’s a big fan of Hale Navy HC-154. From exterior doors and shutters to interior walls and built-ins, this shade adds excitement to a room while still acting as a neutral.
