Benjamin Moore Color Stories Paint Colors

When I am looking for color that offers a special richness, I grab my Benjamin Moore Color Stories fan deck first.

This special paint formulation blends about five to seven pigments in each color.  Each color in the series has no black or grey.

ben moore tandoori

Paper Lantern CSP-1150 is a true, clear red.  It contrasts beautifully with black, white or cream as an accent wall for a dramatic bit of pop.

Tandoori CSP-1005 evokes an Eastern flair, and works beatifully along with teals and greys.

 

CSP-745 mystic lake ben moore

Mystic Lake CSP-745 is a hue that has enough teal to make it interesting yet is grounded with a softness that evokes calm and tranquility.

ben moore green hydrangea

Green Hydrangea  CSP-850 is a fresh, clean green.  If you want a range of monochromatics, combine Green Hydrangea with  Lime Sherbert CSP-845 and Lillana CSP -855 .  These greens pair well with white, off-white, or cream.

 

My favorite Color Stories soft neutrals are below.
