Creating the story of your home, with paint.

Another one of my obsessions is house paint. I LOVE painting. And spackling. There is no easier way to transform a room than with paint. And my paint of choice? Benjamin Moore. I know every paint company has like thousands of colors, but for some reason, Benjamin Moore’s seem to be better. Is it because their paint is more expensive than most other brands? Probably. I can spend hours at the paint store, gathering paint chips and samples. I’m sure over the past five years (when we bought our home and since then painted every room) I’ve gathered all the paint chips Benjamin Moore makes. In hindsight, it would have been more efficient to buy a swatch book!

Well now that I have to paint my garage, I’ve been looking at supplies online, and came across a new collection of colors from Benjamin Moore. This is bad. Now I’ll be wanting to repaint every room in my house!!

Benjamin Moore Color Stories

The new collection is called Color Stories. It consists of two hundred forty, “one-of-a-kind full spectrum colors have been meticulously handcrafted into an astonishing collection. Each creates depth, overtones, nuance and luminosity not found in ordinary paints. From natural morning light to artificial or indirect illumination, these colors take on different characteristics and appearances throughout the day. Evoking emotions and feelings, each unique blend offers a story and a personality behind each hue. Inspired by nature, the senses, moments in time, found objects and pure imagination, each color tells its enticing tale.”

I love the design of the website. The colors are organized into 8 volumes, like Fluid Blues, Elemental Greens and Naturally Neutral. And each volume has a collection of images, and highlights the colors inspired by each photo. Very cool! And they have an iPad app! Sounds like a trip to the paint store is on the agenda for this week. Perhaps I have a new story to write!
