I love to pick people's brains about anything staging related. I find myself using favourites over and over and I would like to branch out a bit.How do you make your color selections? Some of my favourite colours are Benjamin Moore. I like to use these colours in my staging projects and I have these colours in my own home. If a client wants to use a less expensive version of the same colour I will colour match the BM paint chip. But I must say I love BM. My favourite paint finish is the Ulti-Matte.....Yumo (Rachel Ray)
Tiramisu CC-486 Biscotti CC-488 Chocolate Fondue CC482 Grey Wisp CC670.
Colours I find myself using alot are Smoky Taupe CC490, Ranchwood CC500, Buckhorn CC510. Notice a correlation here? If you have a BM Designer Classics Colection Fandeck you will see that those colours that I love are all on the same chip.
I love Gray Wisp CC670, Smoky Green CC700, and Mount Saint Anne CC710. Those are some pretty smoky greenish/blue greys. Very nice for bathrooms and bedrooms. I like using a combo of blue and browns. I also like Muslin CC110, Barely Beige CC140, Dijon CC210, Ginger Root CC274 and Sisal CC304. Some reds I love are Sundried Tomato CC62, Maple leaf red 2084-20. I recently used Maple leaf red with Buckhorn. Very Dramatic.
I don't shy away from colour just because I'm staging a house. I like to add a dramatic flair if its called for. If all homes staged were beige it would be too boring. Branch out when it comes to colour selection.
