Paint Question

The main part of our house is an open floor plan with 18' ceilings and is painted Weston Flax by Benjamin Moore. I would like to repaint the entire area which is the foyer, dining room, living room, an upstairs open loft area, and at the end of a catwalk a hall that leads to two bedrooms. Also the area goes into the kitchen and breakfast room which is also painted Weston Flax that is faux with some customized painting as well. That area will not be repainted but does join the Weston Flax area; consequently the new paint color must coordinate with the Weston Flax. Also, now the ceilings are painted with 50% of the Weston Flax color. I will probably still paint the ceilings the same color, but 30%.

I'm wanting something much warmer, maybe of the gold or beige family, but no green tones. Do you have a recommendation on the ceiling as well?

Please, do you have any suggestions/recommendations?

Thank you for your help.


Thank you for your question, and the extensive detail on your paint question. Benjamin Moore Weston Flax is a beautiful color. I'd be happy to suggest warm colors that could work adjacent to West Flax. You'll want to sample any colors you're considering, as various factors can change the appearance of color in any room. Also, I believe that you're on the right track with your ceiling color choice, especially at 30%.

Here are paint colors to consider:

Benjamin Moore Amulet AF-365

Benjamin Moore Monroe Bisque HC-26

Benjamin Moore Powell Buff HC-35

Benjamin Moore Crumb Cake CSP-1010

Benjamin Moore Golden Garden 221

I hope these suggestions are helpful,



Thank you for your quick response and for ALL of your suggestions. I particularly like Powell Buff, but will buy some samples before I make the big plunge.

Again, thanks for your help.

Take care.


You're most welcome! So happy to be of assistance.
