April 12th, 2018 Favorite Benjamin Moore Whites That Are Not The Same Old, Same Old

As color specialists, we often find ourselves looking for unique variations on the classics. A crisp, beautiful white dazzles in any space, but not all whites are created equal. We have talked about the top 5 Benjamin Moore whites in the past, and these shades are certainly popular for a reason; they’re beautiful and timeless. But when it comes to choosing the best color for your unique space, we want to ensure a perfect fit. When choosing a perfect white, undertone is critical. A warm undertone can make your space appear sunnier, while a cool undertone creates a more dusky, regal space. Here are a few of our favorite whites that break the status quo and deliver beautiful results.

Specifically, we were assigned to paint the living room, designed by Shaun Smith, of the Traditional Home Southern Style Showhouse back in May.

On a phone interview with Preservation in Print, Jason Bertoniere explains the role of painting in terms of restoration and historic preservation and the importance of combining “old painting methods” with modern techniques and trends.

The article, which was published in their September 2016 issue Keeping Old World Methods Alive, covers the changes in paint products and application techniques over the years.  In terms of restoration specifically, Preservation in Print discusses how paint product, painting techniques, and skill level are key to maintaining historic homes’ original “glory”–looking the same as they did when they were first built.
