Paint Color Help!





Have any of you watched the HGTV show "Selling LA"? I haven't been able to catch it yet, but on a recent episode (Jan 5) they showed this fabulous Venice Beach, California home. My reader Tracy is totally obsessed with the kitchen (in a good way, we've all been there!) and would love to know the paint color. We have no idea who designed the kitchen, but thought we'd put it out there and maybe someone, somewhere knows! And if not, guesses are more than welcome. Either way, I hope you enjoyed this kitchen as much as we did! You can tour the rest of the home (now sold) right here!

I'm watching it, but haven't seen this episode yet. I'm also loving this color. Gorgeous kitchen.

I'm afraid I can't help w/ the color, but there's one thing she needs to consider is the fact that interiors on TV are quite different than real life. Colors change drastically with the light they use. The best thing to do is go to a paint store and look for the color she loves and that can be comparable to this one.

I hope this helps.

Hi Erin... I don't know the designer or color, but it seems awfully close to BM Wedgewood Gray. Of course, it's difficult to tell on a computer screen, but your reader might want to check it out. Good luck!

Amanda said...

I have Wedgewood Gray in my dining room and it looks be similar -

or maybe BM Woodlawn blue?

Jennifer @ Belclaire House said...

I don't know that particular color, but I just found a gorgeous greenish-blue called Jekyll Grand Dining Sea Mist that you could consider. It seems like it could be similar to that (it's hard to tell). Sorry not totally helpful!

Jennifer said...

I haven't seen that show but that kitchen rocks!

minerva @ park city real estate said...

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to watch that episode, but I think that color is close to Wedgewood gray? Or is it? :D Anyway, that kitchen is very beautiful! :)

Sarah K said...

Just painted a desk for my craft room that looks very close. Martha Steward, Sea Glass from Home Depot. Good luck!

Diane said...

Oh, yes....the Martha S. Sea Glass is gorgeous. I've been looking at that one myself for my bedroom.

Erin...just have to tell you that being obsessed with the color turquoise too, I love getting your posts by email subscription. Truly, it's always a big bright spot in my day. I love your site (and Everything Turquoise). You do the very best job of scouting out wonderful inspirations for us. I'm totally hooked on your site and I just wanted you to know it.

hmmm, I have both Wedgewood Gray and Woodlawn blue in my house and I am leaning toward the Woodlawn Blue. If you look at this post (http://myoldcountryhouse.blogspot.com/2011/09/roomspiration-link-partythe-dining.html) and scroll down to the very last photo..you can see what I Mean. The large cabinet is actually painted in Wedgewood Gray..but that photo is too dark to convey it correctly.

The Wedgewood Gray gives off a grayer tone in bright light/ Another possibility might be Benjamin Moore "Birds Egg". At any rate it is gorgeous, absolutely Gorgeous!

Something Gorgeous said...

Yes such a soft, feminine colour!

Jenifer M said...

Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue? It is or was the color of the year

Musette said...

I agree with what Lucianne says up there - don't look for the color in the show/on the screen to translate in your own space.

Looks like the house now sold!! Have not watched HGTV show yet...but I would bet money that it is a Benjamin Mooore color. I just seen a color the other day in something that looked almost exactly as that, and it was Benjamin Moore, I just can't put a finger on the name of the color...ugh. That kitchen is a beauty I'll say that.

CS said...

I think it is closer to Martha Stewart's Enamelware or a lighter shade of MS's Salt glaze or Aegean Blue (I love Martha's paint and colors)

CS said...

...oops and I forgot to mention that lighting (especially in magazine photos) really can mess with what the true shade really looks like, and I agree with the poster who mentioned that to get samples and put them up but I add this advice: to live with them for a day or so and see how the shade looks in various shades of light during the day and light.

CS said...

...and yes, I agree with the poster that there is a strong possibility that it could be a more expensive paint like Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams. Ok I'm FINALLY done. :)

Sizzle and Zoom said...

I don't know what shade it is but it is beautiful and so is the kitchen/dining room.

Kpaquette said...

It looks very similar to the color I painted my kitchen island, Benjamin Moore Castle Walls. You can see it here:

Could also be BM Stratton Blue like this kitchen in Atlanta:

Whatever the actual shade, I love turquoise cabinets!

Fits and Kisses said...

Looks very close to Palladian blue by BM

Miss Rubio said...

OMG I remember watching this episode and rewinding and pausing on this kitchen.....I looooved it so much. Wish I could help with the color. I can drive there and ask and get a personal tour of the house haha (maybe too creepy right?)

Single Story House Plans said...

I just seen a color the other day in something that looked almost exactly as that,looks in various shades of light during the day and light.

Glidden Clear Blue Sky?

travertine floor tiles said...

Are those terracotta floor tiles in the kitchen, they went out of fashion for a while here in Great Britain, but they look great!!

A good way of getting suggestions on Turquoise shades, though not many shades in Turquoise are available so far. I feel that for kitchen and other parts of home interior some other colors can be better. Anyways, if it is Turquoise then too, some soothing shades can be better than brighter ones.

Arthur said...

This was actually MY house, and I am so sad I can't remember the color because I want to do my next kitchen the same.

It gets even more complicated. While I did use Benjamin Moore paints for the house, I remember picking this color from a HUGE paint book that wasn't benjamin moore and then having them match it, and then I darkened it, so it was truly custom.

It was part of an enormous full house remodel and sadly the formula just got lost in the insanity that is remodeling.
