Readers frequently ask me to tell them the names of the paint colors in various rooms of my home. I decided to share them all in one place in case you were wondering, too! So settle in for the grand tour and all the coordinating paint color names. All the photos in this post were taken by Melanie G Photography.
Benjamin Moore’s Prescott Green HC-140
Benjamin Moore Prescott Green HC-140 is the color that runs through many of the rooms on the main level of our home. It’s certainly not for everyone, but it works as the perfect super-neutral for my specific spaces. It’s a lot like one of Pantone’s current top color picks, Grayed Jade. It’s an icy green with quite a bit of blue in it.

Table Base – Ralph Lauren’s Golden Candlesticks Metallic
While Prescott Green is the wall color in the entry, living room, and hallway, it is the trim and ceiling color in a couple of other rooms. In the dining room it’s paired with a buttery yellow.
Upper Walls – Benjamin Moore Weston Flax HC-5
Trim/Ceiling/Below Chair Rail – Prescott Green HC-140
That buttery yellow is on the walls and ceiling of the adjoining kitchen, paired with white trim on all the cabinetry and beadboard wainscotting. The floor is VCT (vinyl composite tile), which we installed in this pattern I came up with 12 years ago. Notice the light and dark greens with the black:
Walls and Ceiling – Benjamin Moore Weston Flax HC-5, Trim – White Heron OC57
The kitchen floor colors echo the original tile in the main floor bathroom, see?
Chandelier, Mirror, and Cabinets – Benjamin Moore INT/EXT Black
And here’s the Prescott Green on the trim and ceiling of my office, paired with the neutral Feather Down on the walls:
Walls – Benjamin Moore Feather Down OC-6, Ceiling – Prescott Green HC-140
Trim – Benjamin Moore Prescott Green HC-140
We painted our master bedroom in a color of similar intensity as the other colors throughout the main floor of the house.
Walls – Benjamin Moore’s Violet Mist, Ceiling – Whisper Violet 2070-70
The enclosed porch off the living room is the same warm white as the living room trim, while the ceiling is classic light blue beadboard.

Even though there is a combination of color placement, the main floor maintains a consistent color flow. The upstairs is separated with a closed door staircase. That means you can’t see the upstairs and downstairs at the same time, so the upstairs is a bit more playful in regard to color. Our daughters’ rooms are adjoining and you can see through one into the other:
Walls and Ceiling – Benjamin Moore Hawthorne Yellow HC-4, Bed – Prescott Green HC-140
The yellow ceiling and accents in the 2nd bedroom are the same yellow from the 1st bedrooms walls and ceiling, while similar green accents are peppered throughout both rooms. Even though the color schemes are related, each room has its own personality.
Walls – Crystal Springs 764, Ceiling and Tub – Hawthorne Yellow HC-4,
Beds/Chair – Fashion Rose
We wallpapered the upstairs bathroom in a sapphire blue toile.
Sink Base – Silver Lake 1598
On the other end of the upstairs hallway is my husband’s mancave office. The unexpected color combination is masculine and a warm surprise, I think!
Walls – Pumpkin Pie 2167-20, Trim & Bookcase -Yellow Tone 370,
Backs of Bookcase – Stem Green 2029-40
Except for the kid’s bedrooms, these are the colors I chose 12 years ago. While the bedroom colors have and will change as years go by, the palette for the rest of the house really suits the style and furnishings we have. Having a well-thought out plan for a home’s color palette pays off in the long run, and I don’t expect to change wall colors anytime soon!
