Beach House

I had the pleasure of working with the nicest couple who recently purchase a second home in Beach Haven, NJ.  When we began our collaboration, the clients had already selected Benjamin Moore Jute for the wall color.  It was perfect for the beach, a warm neutral would work as a great backdrop to the colors we selected.  The Ethan Allen furniture in shades of beige and yellow for the living room and white and blue for the family room, is reminiscent of the sand, sun and sea!  It all came together so nicely and I am sure they will enjoy many happy years in their new summer retreat.  A big thanks to my clients for sharing their fun project.

Benjamin Moore Favorites

I am thinking of painting my living room before the holidays.  It's been Oriental Silk (a retired Benjamin Moore color) for years now but it's time for a change.  I recommend paint colors all the time, so why am I having trouble deciding for myself?  Too many favorites, I guess. Below are a few under consideration and thanks to Traditional Home, an image too!  For additional sources, check out the link to Traditional Home.
