Creamy Latte Paint Colors - Just like your favorite latte or coffee drink, these paint colors are comforting, yet energizing. Sometimes getting the right hue, like getting the right coffee drink, is a custom job. "I mix colors to get a perfect cream," Los Angeles Designer Mary McGee says. Her favorite "recipe": A 50:50 mix of Benjamin Moore's Marble White (OC-34) with Grant Beige (HC-83). "It cuts the gold, and you end up with this incredible color."
Go to the richer side of yellow with these maple gold hues. Golden yellows are classic, fresh, and cozy. But they're also one of the trickiest colors to get right, says New York City designer Marlaina Teich. She says to use a pillow, area rug -- anything that will be in the finished room -- to home in on your paint choice. If a hue doesn't coordinate with the item, move on.
