Historic, Contemporary, Versatile Colors from Benjamin Moore


When you’re painting your home, oftentimes you want to stick with classic colors that have staying power and won’t go out of style any time soon. Benjamin Moore recently announced its new “Williamsburg” color line, inspired by Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia—American classic meets today’s style.

These colors are based on original pigments from 250 years ago that curators pinpointed and Benjamin Moore recreated. The paints are “historic, contemporary, versatile and pleasing as ever.”

You can receive paint advice and wet samples, sold by pints and quarts.  Wet samples allow you to actually paint a square of your favorite color choices onto a wall in your home. Then you can look at the colors in different lighting situations, with your furnishings and home décor in order to see what color you like best.

Looking at the Williamsburg colors, there are plenty of classic neutrals, including Everard Gold, Finnie Gray, and Cornice Tan, with pops of rich hues, such as Randolph Blue, Geddy Verdigris and King’s Red.
