Hello friends! I am still away on my little vacay with my husband but I have a little something for you. I recently contacted a few Interior Designers/ Decorators asking them what their favorite “go-to” paint color was. Here is what they had to say:
My go-to gray as of late has been “Silver Chain” by Benjamin Moore. I recently used this in our master bedroom and in a client’s home throughout the main areas. It’s a really soft, true gray without blue undertones.
Ok, so my “go to” color just so happens to be the color that I painted throughout my entire house….. the color that I lost SO much sleep over after it was painted bc I hated it! And now, I love it, and it seems to work perfectly in all of my projects where the client desires a “cool, sophisticated” look

Below are my go to gray and “greige” colors that I love to use for a calming, clean and modern feel.
Benjamin Moore Horizon – my foyer
Benjamin Moore Classic Gray – in my living and dining room featured in High Gloss Mag
Benjamin Moore Abalone
Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
Benjamin Moore Baby Fawn – excellent if you want a gray/beige color that isn’t too cool
And if your looking for something shocking…. try my home office color of Benjamin Moore Electric Blue
And be sure to check out the rest of Emily Ruddo’s home in the July/August Issue of High Gloss Magazine– it is AWESOME!!! Seriously drool-worthy!
My current “go-to” paint color is Restoration Hardwares Stone. Its the perfect gray/beige blend. A great neutral backdrop without being boring. I used it in my 2-sotry living room and all my upstairs hallways.
So get out those paint brushes and go paint a room! I know many times people are afraid to take the leap – I’ll tell you what I always tell my clients “it’s just paint- if you hate it, you can always re-paint it”. Whats your favorite “go-to” paint color? I’d love to know!
