When you’re painting your home, oftentimes you want to stick with classic colors that have staying power and won’t go out of style any time soon. Benjamin Moore’s Williamsburg Color Collection, features 144 authentic colors of Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia—American classic meets today’s style.

These colors are based on original 18th-century pigments, wallpapers and historical documents that historical preservationists at Colonial Williamsburg pinpointed and Benjamin Moore recreated. The paints are “historic, contemporary, versatile and pleasing as ever.” As we are opening our hearts and homes up to color once again, it’s the perfect time to revisit the Williamsburg colors. The Collection is filled with deep rich hues as well as plenty of classic neutrals.

When it comes to painting your home, a change of color can give a space new life, adding either energy or calm, visual interest and a new feel. It can be a fun project that also gives you a renewed appreciation for your home.

We always recommend buying  sample pots and paint out sample boards of your favorite color choices. Then you can look at the color in different lighting situations, with your furnishings and home décor in order to see what color you like best.
