The blog talked about how Anthony Baratta, Williamsburg Foundation’s first ever residential designer uses Benjamin Moore’s Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection to transfer this living museum as his home. Tony is known for his bold color signature style. So the overall color application is quite breath-taking.
Collaborating with The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Benjamin Moore actually introduced Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection with 144 colors back 2013. Here are some of my favorites:
Here are several more:

Here is the recent powder room we did for the Orange County Hill house. Different from super contemporary entry, we create more traditional vibes for this powder room to give that warmth and inviting feel. The crisp contrast between blue and white and touch of brass on the hardwares make the space so elegant, light and airy with a right dose of glamour.
We blogged that Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2020–First Light, if you haven’t read our blog, please click here to read And we think the color is pretty neutral yet moody and can be an elegant backdrop for any interiors. In Orange County Hill Project, we painted Client’s guest bedroom in kind of similar pink color—neutral yet elegant and sophiticated:
The light warm pink create such a dreamy atmosphere. The tufted bed headboard adds depth and interest to the space while the 2 of brass pendants anchor the bedroom and champaign nightstands lend a touch of sophistication. Artwork for sure is the soul of the room. This is a soothe and delicate place place where guests can relax well.
Benjamin Moore just announced its Color of the Year 2020 today —First Light,2102-70, a soft, rosy hue blooming with potential. Based on Benjamin Moore,” It’s a cool, sophisticated pink that you can live with day in and day out”. I was expecting another shade of blue. Well, I love pink and glad to see pink color is going to be here to stay for the start of a new decade.
Well, you can see that this Benjamin Moore’s First Light is not that sweet and almost can pair with any color.
In case you don’t have that much natural light in your dining room, it will be a perfect time to create an intimate dining space with an enveloped jewel-box specially when the chill weather is coming. We did the exact same thing for the dining room in the hill house in Orange County. Here are the 3 tips how we did:
Here are the 3 tips how we did:
Have a dark monochrome color platte on the walls and flooring.
Use crisp white marble and cream upholstered chairs to create a nice contrast.
Have a good lighting design: the over-sized drum chandelier is the focal point of the whole room.
Have a jewel-tones tablewares and decor objects to dress up the table—we use some glass pumpkins for the seasonal fall decor.
Use upholstered folding screens to invite warmth.
Have a touch of gold like the way we use on the picture frame and brass candle holder.
Fall decor is all about layers and colors. So I feel it is an exciting season to create something fresh, warm and inviting in the chilled weather. At the end of the day, we all love to come back a beautiful home and rest well. Plus, as we all know, the holiday season is approaching. So we can always start somewhere to make some changes. Since we are on the way to wrap our hill project in Orange county, I am going to talk about fall decor we incorporated for the entry.
As you can see the house has a white crisp and clean-lined walls and ceilings and they are providing the perfect backdrop for the bold abstract artwork and jewel-tone decor objects. Here are 3 ways that we create this fall decor:
Mix-and-match: The modernized regency dark walnut center table is such a nice contrast with the white contemporary architecture. The bold abstract art is toned down a little bit by the classical blue-striped wallpaper making the space more livable.
A touch of gold: The brass mid-century chandelier and brass candle holders on the center table add a touch of glamor to the space.
Use upholstered pieces: The Upholstered screen and ottomans soften the contemporary entry.
Have some signature seasonal pieces: Yes, velvet pumpkins with our favorite fall colors indicate it is about time to celebrate the harvesting.
In case, you cannot wait to update your front door decor for the fall season but rather stay away from traditional super saturated fall-color scheme, I have 5 ideas for you.
Paint your door with navy blue, mint blue, grey blue or all sorts of blue color and do have your favorite pumpkins since orange-blue color palette is chic, modern and fashion-forward. By the way, blue, navy blue and mint blue will be trendy for the next several years and those shades are versatile with different styles.
Well, I am so so glad that finally I am able to sit in front of my Mac and blog again. I had a crazy schedule in the past two weeks between work and fall markets and new product launchings. But I feel pretty awarding after I started to put things together and truly got inspired by all of the new color palettes, fabric, decor objects, concepts, styles… I highlighted the 6 trends for luxury home decor and furnishings market in the following video: Organic; Color & Pattern; Modern; Form; Warm and Inviting; Refined; Mixed and Match. You can just lay back and enjoy!
