The Best Benjamin Moore Paint Colors

What qualifies these paints to be the best Benjamin Moore paint colors? First, as an interior designer, I feel that you need to know the room you’re working with, therefore you choose the best paint color for your space. You need to know not only what other colors will complement the paint color you’re choosing, but you also have to keep in mind how light works in the space. I am sure you have heard this before, but taking light in consideration is very important to achieve the result you’re expecting when choosing the right paint color for your room.

Now, you might ask, why Benjamin Moore and not other companies? I have tried many brands and I find that many of them are great, but I have kids at home, and I feel that Benjamin Moore is the strongest one and I will be honest, I don’t like having to paint my house too often, and I want something that lasts, and that’s why I choose BM. It usually costs more (this is the only part I don’t like!), but I see it as an investment for my home and my clients’.

Here you will find some of the most popular Benjamin Moore paint colors, complete with pictures! Some are classic paint colors and I even added some new paint colors! Also, all of the paint colors are organized by color categories under each photo. Find the best Whites, Grays, Taupe, Yellows, Blues, Browns, Greens, Orange, Reds and more!
This is the kind of post you’ll want to bookmark and come back to see whenever you feel like finding the best new Benjamin Moore paint color for your space. I hope it inspires you!

Paint colors look different in every room (due to lighting and other ever-changing factors) so I suggest you to test your favorite colors before buying them. Also, take in consideration that color can look fairly differently from what you see on the monitor of your computer.

Try it first, and if you love it, don’t be afraid to change your space. Color can change not only your room, but also, your mood! So, find a color that makes you happy!

    Thanks for this. I love BM paint and have it in various colors throughout my home. On my ceilings and crown moldings I have
    Benjamin Moore 1093 French White.

  2. Wow..great post. I am bookmarking this one as a reminder of how many amazing colors are out there and I will have to share it with my readers. Great job as always Luciane, have a fabulous weekend!

  3. Karen said,

    Very helpful post. I’m having my foyer painted this fall & have been putting off picking a neutral (the hardest to pick imo). So thank you for putting this together – it will help a lot!

  4. Faye said,

    Personally I have always used Farrow & Ball paints for my home, especially as my cottage walls need to ‘breathe’ and their paints are made specifically for this. One problem with them however, you do need to use their modern emulsion, (especially in high traffic areas), or their estate type literally wipes off. Do you happen to know if BM paints could be used on old cottage walls too? I am asking as their colour ‘Van Courtland Blue’ is just the shade I am looking for my snug feature wall. Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you.

  5. Lana said,

    Love all the images. I am planning on painting this fall after doing a big organize and clear out. I love all the whites and grays. I love them all, great inspiration.

  6. Great post…definitely have some of my favorites here!

  7. Christine @ Antique Homes and Lifestyle said,

    Great post! I love that you posted the photo with the actual paint color and number. I’ve used Dove White and Linen White a lot.

    Have a great day!

  8. Elizabeth said,

    I love this post! Thanks for the great advice.

  9. Tina NYC said,

    I love BEnjamin Moore tranquility from their Aura line. It is a perfect grey-green and it lives up to its name, as it is in fact a color that induces calmness.

  10. Mimi said,

    Gorgeous examples. Thanks for this great post!

  11. Mary said,

    I would love to know the colour green used in the back room in the ‘Shaker Beige’ photo. Is there anyway of finding that out?

  12. We too are big Benjamin Moore Fans. For a serene, peaceful, soothing blue try White Satin. I’ve had it in my bedroom since we moved in 8 years ago and I still love it. I just painted a sitting room in Snowfall and did the ceiling in 75% of the White Satin.

  13. Jackie said,

    Fantastic collection & resource! Love your site!

  14. Dawna Pond said,

    Love BM paints have never used anything else, from walls to painting furniture it holds up amazing. This was a great site, I do have a question though, I live in Maine and lots of people , including myself have wood trim you never seem to put wood trim and its hard to find colors that compliment wood, would love some idea with wood trim also love Adagio fabulous color grey. Thanks again

  15. Sue Smith said,

    Love all of the fantastic BM paint colors and the rooms, but I was wondering if you have posted anything about the best BM exterior paint colors? I have a very old, very tired stone and cedar shake home that needs some TLC and a fresh coat of paint!

  16. Jen said,

    Regarding wood trim-our whole house has wood trim (including two beamed ceilings and three rooms walls covered with wood). Benjamin Moore’s Quiet Moments looks amazing with it. The color is quite a chameleon…turns from blue to gray to green throughout the course of the day.

  17. Jen said,

    Forgot to mention that we get our Benjamin Moore paint color matched at Lowes since we can’t afford the ‘real’ stuff. Good idea if you love Ben’s colors but would have to go with out food for a couple days to pay for it haha. Lowes did a great job.

  18. amy said,

    Great suggestions. I love Benjamin Moore SILVER FOX, and WYTHE BLUE. So nice.

  19. Lynn Lively said,

    Love BM paint and colors – colors used in my house – palladian blue, nosegay, Philadelphia cream and shaker beige…love them all!

  20. sandra said,

    I love the color SANDY HOOK GRAY. I have used it in several rooms.

  21. Donna West said,

    I love Lennox tan. Nice neutral that really makes white trim “pop”.

  22. Diena Cameron said,

    I love all of these colors so, It will be incredibly hard to choose one. I have been searching for quite some time for the right shade of turquoise and I have found two in your collection that are perfect. I also found the perfect shade of grey. Thank you so much for this post. Very helpful.
