I have used Benjamin Moore paint only for one project.
The client is American and he was so adamant that Benjamin Moore paint was the best that he had it shipped from America.
After a few years I couldn’t agree more, Benjamin Moore is actually some of the best paint in the market. The product yield is good, the quality is excellent, the colors very attractive and durable.
It is a shame that it is not widely distributed in Europe (in Italy it is sold only in Milan).
Benjamin Moore every year picks the color of the year and this year the voted shade is the AF 690, a grey that in Italy called grigio perla (pearl grey).
I have used this color many times and I love it. It is a sophisticated hue and as Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence says “this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.”
It goes very well with wooden and white furniture and it is perfect when you want to achieve a contemporary and elegant look.
We will find out only in December which one is going to be the Pantone’s color of the year but I wouldn’t be surprise if they will pick a neutral color as well.
