DIY Guide to Achieving Professional Paint Results with Benjamin Moore


Colour coordination is the key to creating cohesive and visually stunning interiors. With Millwick Paint’s expertise and Benjamin Moore’s extensive palette of premium colours, you can unlock your home’s full aesthetic potential.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the importance of colour coordination, share expert tips, and introduce you to Benjamin Moore’s colour tools that will simplify the process of creating the perfect colour scheme for your spaces.

1. The Importance of Colour Coordination

A well-coordinated colour palette can:

– Set the Mood: Colour can evoke a range of emotions and create atmospheres ranging from warm and inviting to cool and serene.

– Define Spaces: Colour can visually define specific areas within your home while ensuring a harmonious flow between rooms.

– Enhance Visual Appeal: A thoughtfully coordinated colour scheme can tie together your home’s design elements and elevate its overall appearance.

2. Getting Started with Colour Coordination

Begin by considering these essential aspects of colour coordination:

– Look for Inspiration: Use resources like interior design blogs, magazines, and social media platforms like Pinterest or Instagram to gather inspiration for colour palettes that resonate with your personal style.

– Evaluate Your Space: Assess your room’s natural light, furnishings, and architectural details to understand better which colours would complement its unique features.

– Begin with a Neutral Base: Choose a neutral hue as the foundation for your palette—think whites, greys, or beiges—to create balance and allow for greater flexibility when adding accent colours.

3. Developing Your Colour Scheme

With a strong foundation in place, follow these steps to build a harmonious and visually appealing colour scheme:

– Choose a Dominant Colour: Select a colour that will feature prominently in your space, acting as the focal point for your design. This could be a bold paint colour for an accent wall, a large piece of furniture, or a statement art piece.

– Pick Supporting Colours: Select two or three complementary colours that will enhance your dominant hue. Consider using your chosen colours for elements like window treatments, accent furniture, and decorative accessories.

– Add Contrasting Elements: Incorporate contrasting colours to create visual interest and prevent your palette from appearing too flat or monochromatic.

4. Expert Tips for Crafting the Perfect Colour Scheme

Keep these essential tips in mind during your colour-coordination journey:

– Follow the 60-30-10 Rule: Divide your colour scheme into a dominant colour (60% of the room), a secondary colour (30%), and an accent colour (10%) to create a visually balanced space.

– Consider Undertones: Be mindful of the undertones present in paint colours—whether cool or warm—to ensure they complement each other and the other design elements in your space.

– Test Your Choice: Like with paint finishes, sample your chosen paint colours in your room before making a final decision. Paint a small area and observe how the colours appear under varying light conditions and how they interact with existing furnishings.
