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!

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging.
