So many have requested information about the paint colors we use in our catalog photography that we keep a running list for quick reference. Below are the key colors used in our spring catalog—all from Benjamin Moore.

BM 2024-40 yellow finch, page 11

BM 2121-10 gray, page 16

BM 2124-50 bunny gray, page 8

BM 2013-20 orange nectar, page 31

BM 2008-20 claret rose page 41

Last but certainly not least, and since there are scores of whites out there, decorator’s white.

YAY! I've been trying to track down the color of the bedroom wall in the paramount table lamp ad. It's a grayish purple... THANKSS!!!

Hi Jessica!
If you're referring to the shot that includes the tatami bed, that color is actually bunny gray--however it seems to have been affected by the lighting of the shot or the printing of the catalog.

In reality it's less purple so we recommend checking with your local paint supplier for the most accurate color swatch.

Good luck!

I have the Gion Bedding and love the cement-ish looking light gray color on the wall in that photo. After finding this post I was thrilled to find the exact color "Bunny Gray", and I did buy a $2 sample of the paint first to try it out. I understand that lighting and print affect the end result of how the color looks in a catalog, and I could tell that it was a different shade of gray than shown in the photo, but it didn't look horribly different so I decided the designer must have had good reasons and that I would go for it and trust their choice. Well, this weekend I painted my bedroom and it is NOTHING like the photo at all! In fact it's not even really gray... it's more like I painted my bedroom a baby blue color ;(, and if it wouldn't cost me another $100 to buy more paint I would re-do the whole thing next weekend. Oh well. Just a warning for anybody else who might try out that color, really pay attention to your test swatch! I'm curious if the designer intended for more of that cement-ish look, and knew the color would change with the lights for the shoot and so picked accordingly, or if he really loved Bunny Gray... hard to imagine.
