The barn home is a special creature. It has major character and interest due to the added hues and textures of the exposed post and beam frame. Color on the walls becomes all the more important when considering how to best accentuate and highlight your barn home interior. Jeffrey Rosen, Creative Director for Yankee Barn Homes, knows a thing or two about wall color as he’s an accomplished interior designer in the metro New York area and The Hamptons. Jeffrey is an expert when it comes to “never fail” colors which work on any walls (post and beam or not). Here are Jeffrey’s recommendations for beige shades which will compliment any style, décor and layout. All the colors happen to be Benjamin Moore; not for any business reason but because Ben Moore is a great product with a fantastic array of color choices.
By the way, we so loved the play on words with 50 Shades of Beige we couldn’t help ourselves. The truth is we’re listing eight, as these are Jeff’s top choices for a “can’t go wrong” beige. Enjoy!
HC-93 Carrington Beige a cool beige with a putty cast and deep body.
OC-8 Elephant Tusk is an old stand by, light and airy. Great for a spa-like effect in a bath.
OC-100 Palace White contains subtle nuances of beige that suit tranquil, serene environments; it creates color-enhancing accents for any space.
