Find out what the latest Benjamin Moore colour trends are.

As a home staging trainer it’s important to stay current with decorating & design trends, especially colour. Personally I am a big fan of Benjamin Moore products and was delighted to see that Meme Brooks who works at the Yaletown BM store was doing a Colour Trends presentation at the March Fluff Rental breakfast meeting.

Meme introduced the latest ‘Colour Stories’ collection. The colours that I have seen in home decor stores are definitely lending themselves to the greys, neutrals and earthy tones. While I was at Home Sense I noticed how well their furniture, rugs, art & lamps would go with these BM colours: use darker for drama or a feature wall – like Gotham CSP 385 or Coachman’s Cape CSP 90 – then for a more neutral pallete try Upper West Side CSP 70, Evening Gown CSP 375 and lighter yet Sea Salt CSP 95 or Skipping Stone CSP 155. Many of the Designer Classic collections and the Affinity collection have very similar colours so be sure to check them out.

After Meme’s presentation I went out to one of my favourite BM stores in Kerrisdale and learned more from Scott Howard the store manager. The BM people do love their products and are so knowledgeable! Fluff Rentals being leading edge in their decor rentals had the perfect compliments to the new trendy colour palette!

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
