Paint is one of those things that can absolutely make or break a room. With so many colors to choose from – the task can be overwhelming at best. We’ve made it our personal mission to reach out to some of our very favourite designers from around the world, and unveil some of their, personal, favourite paint colours. We’ve been chatting with the best of the best, and today it’s all about the sweet and talented Brian Paquette.

Coles Notes:
No. 1 – Benjamin Moore’s Decorators White: The bluest of all whites… I find this white is perfect for showcasing artwork and vintage textiles.

No. 2 – Benjamin Moore’s Ice Fog: In the pacific northwest we have a lot of grey…and instead of fighting it, I embrace the outside with shades like this that blur the lines between inside and out.

No. 3 – Benjamin Moore’s Fairmont Green: One of Benjamin Moore’s historical colors I can’t get enough of. Here I used it as a trim. It’s just really fun and punchy! Who says trim has to be white?

No. 4 – Benjamin Moore’s Flint: The bluest charcoal gray…perfect for a dark media room – oh, and paint the ceiling!
