{friday finds: paint colors with a cult following}

What are your “go to” colors?  Remodelista asked designers and architects for their favorites — 10 Paint Colors with Cult Followings — and it’s no surprise that some of our favorite colors from Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball dominated the list.

Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Color of the Year was called “the perfect wall color” by New York designer Lauren Rubin, and San Francisco designer Kriste Michelini added, “it is my go-to white — fresh, versatile, and warm — and it works in any home, whether traditional or modern, with a warm or cool palette.”

2. Hague Blue from Farrow & Ball

“It’s a beautiful, deep, rich color that can be at once bold and understated.”

4. Iron Mountain from Benjamin Moore

The most popular dark color on the list, Los Angeles architect Oonagh Ryan said, “I use this paint color on almost every project. It’s a warm gray with brown undertones and matches natural steel and sheet metal perfectly.”

5. Clunch from Farrow & Ball

Jessica Speeckaert of Chambers + Chambers Architects in Mill Valley, California, says Clunch by Farrow & Ball is the cult favorite in their office. “It has a sophisticated warmth and adds a timeless elegance to any room,” she says.
