interior designer darryl carter creates 24 colors for benjamin moore paints

Interior designer, Darryl Carter, teamed up with Benjamin Moore Paints to create Darryl Carter Colors by Benjamin Moore. The paints start with DC-1 and go to DC-24. Darryl Carter frequently is featured in the major shelter magazines and has his own decorating books called “The New Traditional” and a new book launching this October titled “The Collected Home: Rooms with Style, Grace and History”. Both are available to buy and pre-order on Amazon.

I wanted to include this paint collection in this week’s color palette of white, neutrals and browns because Darryl is an expert on these neutral colors, including shades of gray, blue and green that so often are in the family of neutrals. Darryl Carter paints are featured in six groupings: White, Gray-Green, Blue, Khaki, Greige (shades of gray and taupe)  and Accent Colors. Explore the Benjamin Moore site and you’ll see many inspirational images of his beautifully finished rooms with the exact paint colors he used which provide an excellent guide when decorating your own home. I love his blend of traditional and contemporary, I think you’ll like his style too.
