Welcome Them with Comfort: Benjamin Moore's Paint Picks for Guest Rooms

It’s official. They’ve booked their tickets. Your friends and family are 100% coming to stay for the holidays. But your guest rooms? Let’s be honest – they could use some sprucing up. And since the best way to do that is with a little paint job, we asked our friends from Benjamin Moore for some help. Check out their picks (and tips) below.


A guest room’s foremost function is to make overnight visitors feel comfortable. So yes, cozy sheets and fluffy pillows are crucial here, but soothing hues on your walls are, too. Try paint colors like Gentleman’s Gray 2062-20, Breath of Fresh Air 806, Pashmina AF-100, and Antique Pearl 2113-70 (seen above) to create a restful atmosphere that will make every guest feel right at home.

The best part? With low-odor, fast-drying, and environmentally friendly paints like ben® from Benjamin Moore, you can put rooms back together in a snap. So there’s more time for carving that turkey or, you know, taking a nap.

Our Update the Guest Bedroom for Fall: Pick from Three Styles Boutique opens Friday, October 18, at 3PM ET.

Be sure to enter Put on the Paint. The Benjamin Moore Sweepstakes. from October 18, 2013, through October 22, 2013, for a chance to win ten gallons of ben® paint, $1,000 in Rue Credit, and more.
