Natural green tones are making a comeback, reflecting our growing desire for sustainability and connection with nature. From earthy greens to muted olive shades, these colors bring the outdoors in, creating a soothing environment that promotes well-being
Behr Royal Orchard – a dark and deep olive green.
“For my husband’s home office, I wanted a color that would feel sophisticated but not stuffy,” says designer @csnowak. “He works in sports, with a focus on tennis and baseball, which inspired the supersaturated green walls and the leather sofa.” (Royal Orchard by Behr)
Benjamin Moore Misted Fern – A lush, warm green that brings to mind an elegant, plant-filled veranda.
Looking for an easy way to spruce up your bedroom? Add definition and dimension with a paneled accent wall. Balance a mossy green like Misted Fern CC-668 with soft Cloud White OC-130 to create a colorful space without feeling overly saturated.
Sherwin Williams Offbeat Green – A bright green with yellow undertones.
When we dive into a design, one of the first steps is laying out a proposed floor plan. This is the moment when we “solve” every space by giving it a purpose that meets our clients’ specific needs and lifestyle. For this previously-empty corner of our clients’ open floor plan, we designed a built-in library, outfitted with a reading light and the perfect chair for cracking open a book. To anchor the space, we bathed it in the most satisfying green our clients say is the perfect combination of cute and ugly: “cugly” green! 😆💚 We love toeing that line between weird and fantastic, for unexpected moments that delight.
Benjamin Moore Gumdrop – A sweet, spirited green reminiscent of apple-flavored candy.
This playful and charming pantry located on Mount Desert Island! ✨We were requested to use my client’s favorite color, green, and we did just that. By taking a fabric pattern from @galbraithandpaul and making it into a wallpaper, which we custom colored, we achieved this goal. The cheerful cabinetry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s “Gumdrop” green, and the countertop surfaces and sink were replaced with stainless steel material. Also, we can’t forget this vintage MDI map for the finishing touch.
Benjamin Moore Blue Lagoon – A unique blue that pops with teal undertones.

Red and Burgundy Paint Colors
Burgundy, a deep and rich hue, gives off a sense of sophistication and warmth, making it an excellent choice for accent walls or cozy, intimate spaces. Pair it with neutral tones like soft grays or creams to create a harmonious and inviting atmosphere.
Sherwin Williams Radicchio Leaf
My “favorite” room is usually the one we’ve just transformed, but as the house feels more finished, the library is the one I always come back to. The one I want to spend the most time in. It’s strong and opinionated, not for everyone, but I appreciate its boldness. Within that strength is comfort. It just feels good to be enveloped by the mauve and raspberry. And everything looks good in it, like this new painting I picked up today.
Behr Dark Cherry Mocha – Dark Cherry Mocha is as decadent as it gets with its mix of chocolate, coffee and spiced red.

A peek at the finished-ish banquette in our Duplex!! Oh, how I LOVE this wall color. Y’all wanted blue, but as soon as I saw this Dark Cherry Mocha paint swatch at the store, I knew I wanted it in this dining nook. It feels so rich! I’ll share more of the space tomorrow on stories. I still need to get seat/back cushions made, and find more bentwood chairs…but for now, it’s ready for guests this weekend!
Benjamin Moore Fading Twilight – Muted yet balanced undertones that go from brick to violet make this an essential red.

Benjamin Moore Deep Space – A hint of blue defines this lighter shade of black.
How do you capture the coolest Banksy art in a home office? Give it the perfect background. We clad these walls in applied molding and painted them top to bottom in Benjamin Moore Deep Space 2125-20, regal matte finish.
Question: So, I’ve been contemplating between Benjamin Moore’s Golden Orchards yellow paint and their regular Yellow. I’m leaning towards Golden Orchards, but I’d love to hear some opinions. Anyone here used either of these yellows?
Mandy: I recently painted my kitchen with Benjamin Moore’s Golden Orchards, and I’m loving the warmth it brings. It’s not too overpowering, and the subtle undertones really make the space feel inviting.
Leonie: Interesting choice! I was eyeing Benjamin Moore Yellow for my living room. What made you go for Golden Orchards over the regular Yellow? I’m curious about the differences.
Mandy: Well, I wanted a yellow that felt rich and had depth without being too intense. Golden Orchards seemed to strike that perfect balance. It’s like a warm, golden hug for the room.
Kiki: I’m in the same boat, considering a yellow for my home office. I’m drawn to the idea of a warm and inviting space. Does the Golden Orchards yellow feel more versatile, or is it just for specific rooms?
Mandy: I’d say it’s pretty versatile. It works great in my kitchen, but I can imagine it lending a cozy vibe to a home office too. The key is balancing it with the right furnishings and decor.
Dan: I’ve always been a fan of a classic yellow, but this Golden Orchards is catching my eye. Any noticeable differences in terms of how they hold up over time? Durability is a big factor for me.
Mandy: Good point! So far, Golden Orchards has held up really well. No signs of fading or wear, and it’s been a few months. Plus, Benjamin Moore’s quality is generally top-notch.
Dan: I’m thinking of a yellow for my front door, and now I’m torn between the two. Is Golden Orchards too bold for a front entrance?
Mandy: Not at all! It could actually make a stunning entrance. Pair it with crisp white trim, and you’ll have a welcoming, cheerful entryway. It’s bold but in a friendly way!
