Benjamin Moore Paint and The Color Orange


Tulips Patricia Gray Feb 08
Benjamin Moore Paint and the Color Orange

Orange is a color that is mentally stimulating as well as sociable. Colorists say that it can be used it to get people thinking or to get them talking. What a good color to use in a dining room, library, or child's room.

I purchased this bouquet of Parrot Tulips this weekend while I was shopping at our local market. I was stopped dead in my tracks when my eyes hit upon them. Of all the myriad of flowers on display, these definitely jumped out at me and have been my inspiration for this post.   These flowers will sit on my desk this week and it is my intention that they will enhance my creativity. I hope you find these pictures stimulating.


Hermes orange is a word that conjures up an image in one's mind.
Who would not love to have a lacquered ceiling the color of a Hermes Box like this room that Jeffery Bilhuber has created.

I love the shots of Orange in this otherwise White Room. Notice the skirted table in the background.

per·sim·mon (pər-sĭm'ən)

Sometimes only the color of a fruit can conjure up images of a color. Persimmon is one that vividly brings to mind a
whole range of the color orange. How friendly and inviting to paint an entry foyer in this color.
