This group of rooms painted with familiar Ben Moore colors is fantastic. I'm definitely saving it. Only wish I were doing more grown up work to put them to use. Several I've used in past years and others I've agonized over the fan decks, making critical, subtle choices. Thanks!

Another excellent post! This I am bookmarking as we are about to start selecting paint colors and this is a great reference post. I btw, put up a small blurb on my post today about your post on the home resources...thought it was such a good post. Enjoy your Sunday!

You should definitely write this book. Since you know Ben Moore so well, maybe you can help. I want to do some orange, chocolate, and light blue stripes in my son's room. Any suggestions? And if interested, the built-ins on my blog (look under house tour) are Ben Moore Slate Teal.

The pictures are beautiful! Blue and grey have their own kind of beauty, and beige is an eternal and elegant colour. With the vast colour choices, everyone will be able to find the right palette for their homes. Thanks for sharing!

The colors are amazing. The pictures make it easier to visualize the color in reference. The pinks are not my kind of taste though. I particularly favour the photos under the category of blue, grey and white. Thank you for sharing!
