Vibrant Classics With Benjamin Moore

Tired of white walls and black accents? Sharon Grech, a spokesperson for Benjamin Moore and a regular expert on City Line, notes that in recent years, blue paint colours have been gaining popularity. “Navy blues are great alternatives to simple white or black for those wanting to step out of their colour comfort zones. Blue Nova offers a slightly bolder personality, a little more daring than classic navy but still toned down enough to be approachable and versatile for any upcoming paint project,” she says. Her favourite colour palette for 2024 includes Antique Pewter, with its silvery sage undertone paired with Topaz for a bold, upbeat warmth.
