Thanks so much for the tip from "Benjamin Moore Lover". She suggested I use My Perfect Color to match paints. I'll definitely give it a try! If only they matched Farrow & Ball paints...
I played around with the site and did find some of my favorite colors.
This is the pink that WAS in BabyGirl's room: Benjamin Moore Cadillac Pink
And this is the pink that is NOW in BabyGirl's room: Benjamin Moore Frosty Pink
Now that I see them right next to one another, I definitely see the difference!
Here is the color I put on my kitchen ceiling: Benjamin Moore Whispering Spring
The color on the walls is: Pittsburgh Paint Belgian Waffle
This color was in the house when we moved in and I have to say I absolutely love it. It is so light and creamy and the perfect yellow. I have it in my kitchen, powder room and sunroom. It looks really awesome painted on the exposed brick in the sunroom. It looks great with white cabinets, black counters and red and blue accents in a room. The light reflects off of it perfectly during day and evening. In my home, it looks lighter than the swatch.
Last but not least, one of my all time favorites: Tangier Island by Ralph Lauren
Another perfect color. Not too dark, not too light. I have this in BabyBoy's room. It's a great color for a boy's room because you can accent it with pretty much any other color. It looks great with all shades of blue as well as red and green AND yellow. It also looks awesome as a backdrop if you wanted to paint horizontal rugby stripes on a boy's wall.
Hmm...I can see now that this website is going to be addictive.
PS: They also have a really great blog.
