Your home’s exterior is the first thing people see, and while its main job is to protect what’s inside your home and withstand harsh weather conditions, shouldn’t it also look beautiful? We want you to feel a sense of pride as your approach your home.
We’re enjoying sunsets a little earlier in the evening these days in the Chicagoland area, which means that fall is on its way. While we’re not yet ready to say goodbye to summer, we must admit we enjoy the moody, deep plum hues that streak the sky as clouds move across a late summer sunset.
There’s nothing quite like summertime in the Chicagoland area, and there’s no place quite like your deck. From peaceful afternoon lunches to evening family BBQs, it’s a summer sanctuary where you can grill, gather, and enjoy the weather, and it shows.
As athletes are preparing to compete for the gold at the Summer Olympics later this month, our latest choice for color of the month takes the top spot on the podium when it comes to timeless versatility and warm sophistication.
Have you been searching for a way to make your brick house stand out in a neighborhood of brick houses? Or maybe your exterior is so faded and worn it’s starting to remind you of some sort of historical society. Then it might be time to call in the reinforcements…a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore paint!
As we crank up the summer ballads and don our latest pair of sunglasses, let’s not forget to crank up the volume on the colors inside (and outside) our homes too. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way, and if you’re looking for something that's bright, Beacon Hill Damask HC-2 is precisely the shade you need!
How often do you think about your front door? As long as it keeps the frigid cold of the Chicagoland winters out and protects your house from the spring rain, you probably don’t give it much thought. But your front door is so much more than a place where packages pile up; it’s a place where memories are made
Spring has arrived! The weather is getting warmer, flowers are in bloom, trees are filling with lush green leaves — color us inspired. Maybe it’s Spring fever or maybe we’re simply tired of looking at the same walls after a year of mostly staying home, but it’s feeling like the perfect time for a home refresh.
Do you have old furniture lying around that could use a fresh coat of paint? Or maybe you’ve been “dye-ing” to change the hue of your kitchen cabinets? You can elevate, update, and luxury-ify even your most worn-down pieces with the help of Benjamin Moore Advance Waterborne Matte Alkyd Paint.
With April showers falling outside, it’s time to shower your home with a little love using our Color of the Month selection: Potters Clay 1221. The earthy vibes and dusty red tones of Potters Clay 1221 by Benjamin Moore bring a touch of nature into your home.
