Colors That Men Love

BENJAMIN MOORE NORTH CREEK BROWN 1001: "This dark, warm, rich bronze is very, very sexy. Strong and masculine, yet it doesn't shout. It can take any room from casual to sophisticated. It works really well with metal furniture. I've put purple and lavender, yellow and orange up against it, and they really set each other off. And artwork looks amazing on dark walls." -Philip Nimmo - HouseBeautiful.com

Colors That Men Love

FINE PAINTS OF EUROPE COLONIAL ROSE: "I had a client, a very elegant man in his seventies, who requested a pink bedroom. He was a widower, and it reminded him of his wife. I think men like pink more than they're willing to admit. I have a pink living room

Designers Pick Their Favorite Browns

Tudor Brown BENJAMIN MOORE TUDOR BROWN EXT. RM: "I use a lot of brown because everything goes with it. This is like melted chocolate — sensuous, smooth, velvety. I don't think of it as dark, but rich. It anchors a room and gives you a luxurious feeling. I've used it lots in libraries, with white trim. All the beige, camel, and parchment colors look handsome with it." -Dan Carithers

The Best Colors for Your Front Door

C2 Paint Wicked 6446 "When you first see this deep, rich purple, it looks quite dark, but it never loses the color. There's a good dose of red plum underneath. It would look kind of dapper on a door, very Savile Row. Dark and distinguished, yet unexpected. And it would work equally well on a traditional or a modern house." -KEN FULK

Meditation AF-395 - Benjamin Moore "The name alone describes the restful, far‐away‐from‐the‐rat‐ race quality you're after. This is a greige moving toward mushroom or khaki. Warmer than taupe, cooler than a brown paper bag. It's deep and full and changes with the light. Add a rich velvet headboard and a silky rug in corally pink." —Tori Golub

Colors in Neutral

Bella Donna C2, BELLA DONNA C2-316W: "I've been using Bella Donna a lot. It's a smoky lavender gray, the color of a twilight sky. I used it on the parlor floor of a brownstone, and it looked flat-out sophisticated. I'm in the bedroom of my country house right now, which is painted this color. Bella Donna is a sexy, adult color, but it can go a lot of different ways." -D

Bird's Egg 2051‐60 "I've always liked warm and cozy dining rooms and living rooms, but in the bedroom I go toward cool and airy. That to me seems restful, sleep-inducing. My own particular bedroom is painted pale blue, with touches of silver gray and coral. I'm a Pisces and I’m always totally gravitating to water and cool colors." —Miles Redd Benjamin Moore
