Color of the Day {Weston Flax}

05.11.14 Color of the Day, Weston Flax, Benjamin Moore HC-5, light yellow, canary yellow, pale yellow, light yellow retro wall clock

Introducing, today’s Color of the Day: Weston Flax! More specifically, Benjamin Moore HC-5.

Would you like to ‘Get This Look‘?  Add a touch of ‘Weston Flax’ to your space with this Retro Wall Clock from Euro Style Lighting.

Are you looking for ideas on how to use ‘Weston Flax’ in a project? I’m putting together a collection of designs to show you. Here’s what I found so far:

My dreams of late keep taking me to a kitchen with no wall cabinets and lots of windows. Something a lot like this one. The soft yellow wall color combined with the beautiful outdoor view creates a kitchen to spend some time in. ‘Weston Flax’ would work great in this design…

Just a pop of yellow is all you need to balance the blue-greys of this kids bedroom…

Bright and cheerful! ‘Weston Flax’ paired with natural woods can get you this look…

I love the symmetry of the glass doors on either side of this living room design. ‘Weston Flax’ would make an excellent wall color for this space…

Always get samples! Here’s why: The ‘Color of the Day’ posts are intended to provide design inspiration. I select projects and products for each ‘Color of the Day’ post based on the color my eye sees in the photographs. It can be extremely difficult to render color with 100% accuracy when taking photographs, especially of interior spaces. The same color can also appear  entirely different in different lighting conditions. For these reasons, the actual color of the projects or products  may not be an actual match to the ‘Color of the Day’. Always review actual samples from the product manufacturer before making final purchases.
