My Top Paint Picks for Spring

Spring is here! If you’re like me and get the itch to refresh your space this time of year, updating with paint is a fun and affordable way to satisfy that need for change. As most of you know, I’m a diehard Benjamin Moore girl, so I rounded up my top spring-fresh Ben Moore hues to share with you.

Palladian Blue

Palladian Blue HC-144

Don’t be fooled by the name – this lovely colour has much more green than blue! It’s a soft & airy blue-green that feels quite organic to me. I love it paired with crisp white accents, but it also pairs well with brighter tones.

Swiss Coffee

Swiss Coffee OC-45

A Ben Moore classic, year in and year out. Don’t be unimpressed by it’s neutrality – Swiss Coffee has depth. It’s a creamy white that lends itself well to everything from traditional-style cabinetry to the uncomplicated walls of a boho loft.

Van Courtland Blue

Van Courtland Blue HC-145

This colour is simply delicious. If you were to Google it, you’d see it’s one of Benjamin Moore’s most popular colours, and for very good reason. It’s lovely in a variety of applications. I’d use this on the walls of bedrooms and living rooms, but my favourite place to use this is on kitchen cabinets, built-in shelving, and wood furniture.


Muslin OC-12

I can’t think of a room I haven’t used Muslin in. It’s universal. Perfect for open-concept spaces. Depending on what you pair it with, it can blend softly into the background, or add crisp contrast as the star of the design show. It’s the perfect warm neutral.

Silver Mist

Silver Mist 1619

This soft blue is a perfect go-to for bedrooms. It’s calm and restful, and because of it’s grey undertones it acts as a lovely neutral that easily combines with a variety of colour palettes.

First Light

First Light 2102-70

This was Benjamin Moore’s 2020 Colour of the Year, but I’m still in love in 2021! Soft and not-to-sweet, I’d use this for an entire room, on furniture, or as an unexpected design detail such as a closet interior.

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts. And while I’ve got you thinking spring, check out my post on adding more spring refresh here:
