We are often asked by our customers,“what are your most popular colors?” In order to come up with the best possible answer, we polled all 68 of our store managers from 8 states.  This is the second time we've compiled the list.  It's changed a little, but Revere Pewter is still our top seller (and Benjamin Moore's most searched color online).  Whether you are building a new home, remodeling your home, selling a home or just updating a space in your home, this is a great list of neutral colors to reference for ideas.

1. HC-172 Revere Pewter

"A light gray with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores. A great transitional color, it's perfect for an open floor plan."


2. OC-52 Gray Owl

"Gray owl is an all-out unadorned, approachable color that pairs beautifully with stainless steel appliances in a modern kitchen."


3. HC-173 Edgecomb Gray

"A go-to gray that's timeless with a modern edge, this earthy, organic neutral is soft and stylish, creating a setting that feels distinctly personal."


4. OC-17 White Dove

"Unerring style defines this classic, softly shaded white. Light and luminous, it is a favorite choice for moldings and trim." WhiteDove

5. HC-81 Manchester Tan

"Suggesting the striking sandstone façade and sculptural detail of historic Manchester Town Hall, this neutral on the khaki side is classic and elegant."


6. HC-169 Coventry Gray

Gray with a slight blue undertone (if you are looking for a "grayer gray," may try Thunder AF-685)  and part of the Historic Color collection, 191 time-honored hues that can be used in traditional as well as contemporary spaces.


7. HC-45 Shaker Beige

"This inviting mid-toned tan evokes the elements of a lazy beach hideaway—smooth sand, burnished driftwood, a woven sun hat the color of café au lait."


8. HC-170 Stonington Gray

Lighter than Coventry Gray, but also considered slightly blue in undertone.


9. OC-117 Simply White

"Fresh as the first snowfall, this clean, crisp, multi-purpose white is a perennial favorite for trim, ceilings, and walls." OC-117

"This color is part of the Off-White Color collection. Inherently sophisticated and endlessly versatile, the Off-White collection offers subtle nuances of whites that suit tranquil, serene environments as well as creates color-enhancing accents for dynamic spaces. A compilation of 152 white and off-white colors."


Honorable Mentions:
