The Best Benjamin Moore Coastal Color Palette For Your Home

If there is one color palette to have in your home, it’s probably this one. Here’s why.


It seems that everyone is still loving these coastal color palettes and why not?

  • They are soft yet noticeable.
  • You can use this color palette for your forever home or if you’re staging.
  • It has a blue but a happy blue, not too gray, not too ‘nursery.’
  • This color palette goes with most decors.
  • They work well together
  • They FEEL good!
  • They look good.
  • You can mix and match these colors throughout your home
  • There is a nice combo of light, medium and darker hues
  • They are gorgeous!

ABOUT WHITE: See how I have that soft ivory for the trim color? I LOVE that! You may have heard me say it before but I rarely use pure white. Soft whites are so much better!

ABOUT GRAY: I’m not a big fan of gray for two reasons.

  1. I personally think its’ a lifeless color
  2. People with depression issues need to be careful with this hue.

The reason I DO like these grays is because of the undertones – they are warm, not cool. Looking at the grays in the kitchen and foyer area reminds of a Morning Dove bird all big, soft and cuddly.

ABOUT YELLOW: Now that Living Room yellow LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that!!!! It’s really hard to find a nice yellow and I’ve mentioned this before. Either it’s too gold too beige or too lemony. The Benjamin Moore yellow I have here – is flipping perfect. Also on a Holistic level, yellow has some really strong healing notes. Next time you’re around yellow, notice how you feel. Don’t you want that feeling in your home?

ABOUT GREEN: The Family Room is color that teeters between gray, blue and green. It’s very versatile and since it can go green, it’s a nice Holistic choice for the rooms where the family gathers most. Heart Chakra right?

ABOUT BLUE: Here again, I am so not a fan of blue but really like the Benjamin Moore blue I have noted for the bedroom color. I’ve been listening to all your posts and comments and most of you love blue and find it very soothing and relaxing. What better color for the Master Bedroom right? Sleep tight with that one 🙂

You know what’s really cool about this color palette? Look at it. You can take any two colors from this palette and they will work well with each other OR next to each other.

Have an open floor plan home? ANOTHER reason this coastal color palette is perfect. These colors transition well from room to room.

Look – you can take ANY of these colors, combine then and get a great color duo. Here are just some. See how you can decorate your entire home with just these colors? Think of all the possibilities!

Remember to sample out all your colors before you commit to painting. This color palette is available for purchase for $15 for each color. If you would like this color palette that I designed, that will be $105. It’s a really great way to choose the color for your home and take the guess-work about wondering if your choices are right. Remember, undertones can be tricky!

One more note before I finish up here. If you want this color palette but are also looking for a pop color, think about this:


Send me an email at if you’re interested in these colors or if you have any questions. Enjoy!

  • Disclaimer: These are color palettes that I designed myself and can be translated and found in just about any paint brand. In other words, these are not actual color chips/palettes from any paint companies or websites since I designed them but may resemble some colors that exist in just about any paint deck. All my color palettes on this blog are designed by me and do not exist on any Benjamin Moore website.

    Donna, Would you kindly share the BM names of the colors on your lovely coastal pallette? I do design work for Hatteras Yachts and this combo is superb. Many thanks!

  2. yve says:

    Lol You have to pay for color names? Wow There are so many on here that freely share the names. Weird!

  3. Donna Frasca says:

    Well, as a Color Expert, all I sell is color so I am not able to give that information away otherwise I would put myself out of business. I’m sure you understand. Meanwhile, Benjamin Moore would be happy to help you. I’ll be here in case they don’t. Thank you.

  4. sarah says:

    What’s the colors? I don’t see the names.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      Sarah, if you read the post you’ll know why. “Remember to sample out all your colors before you commit to painting. This color palette is available for purchase for $15 for each color. If you would like the whole Benjamin Moore color palette, that will be $105. It’s a really great way to choose color for your home and take the guess-work about of wondering if your choices are right. Remember, undertones can be tricky!”

  5. matt brew says:

    I agree. I just spent 20 minutes of my life looking for the names of these colors. You could at least post upfront that they must be paid for. 20 minutes of my life!!!!

    • Donna Frasca says:

      Matt – take an additional two minutes and read the post. You’ll see very clearly that there is a $15 per color charge for the names of these colors. Let me know if you are interested in them.

  6. Pam luebben says:

    I love these colors! Any suggestions for an open great room/kitchen with hickory cabinets and maple floors and trim? I have black appliances. My house faces west, not very light until the sun comes around. Thanks!

  7. Sandra Adamson says:

    I have just painted by kitchen in York harbour yellow. My home is a high ranch home now what colours can i use for my living room

  8. Donna Frasca says:

    I would try to tie in some of your decor. I’d really need to see a picture of your room to suggest a color for you but since the yellow is a warm color, continue with the warm undertones. You can go with greens, blues and warm grays but again, this will depend on what’s in your home and what look you want.

    Do you want a bold look? Try an Indigo.
    Soft look? Try a warm gray.
    An Earthy look? Try a deep green.

    Again, see how it’s difficult for me to tell you what color to use if I can’t see your room? Feel free to send me an email if you’d like a color consultation.

    Really you are charging for color suggestion — get a life!

    • Donna Frasca says:

      Well do you go to the Dr’s office for free? Maybe you should be a little nicer and maybe you should get a life. No color for you today? Let me know if you change your mind 🙂

  10. Maria Lacey says:

    I love, love, love the coastal combo with the caramel pop! I’ve been looking for a warmer coastal palette that wasn’t overwhelmingly seafoam, blue, and grey and could incorporate natural wood tones. To see it all brought together so nicely is wonderful. It also proves I’m not nuts–coastal doesn’t have to be cold!

  11. Katie says:

    Do you happen to know the paint names/number for this particular palette? TIA!

  12. Mona Mitchell says:

    Donna, I appreciate you sharing your palettes. I find choosing colors so overwhelming and appreciate that you have shared these. I don’t understand why people have become so indignant because you charge for your professional opinion. If they don’t want to pay for it then move on to the next post. Thanks again.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      Thank you Mona, you are sweet.

      It’s up to them. They have three choices.

      1 – to waste a lot of time and money searching for an overpriced Designer to choose color for them

      2 – to pay nothing and take a chance for a “color consultant” at a box store to just give them the top 5 most popular colors and hope it suits their home.

      3 – I’ll be here for them if they need me ❤

  13. Evi says:

    What gives you the right to charge for BM colours. You do not own the copyright on these. You have simply provided a choice of colors that you like. Anyone can print off the colors and take them to any BM dealer and they will give you the color swatches for free.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      And you are correct so print away! By the time these colors run through your laser printer and the “not so well calibrated” color matcher at the paint store you are going to get a pinky beige, muddy green, pukey blue and a peachy yellow. OR, you can purchase this beautiful color palette and not have to take an expensive chance of painting your house with the wrong colors. I’ll tell you what, I’ll give you 10% off this color palette to help you out 🙂

  14. Kay says:

    There have been many times I’ve painted a room with a paint chip I thought I loved, only to hate it after it’s on the wall. Picking colors that harmonize from one room to another is not easy and most people do not have an eye for color. Getting professional help makes all the difference in having a beautiful home. $105.00 is not too much to spend to have a tasteful and pleasant color palette. I’ve spent more than that repainting because it just wasn’t right.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      And that’s the point I try to make – I KNOW how these colors look together AND in homes. I’ve been using them for a really long time and feel very confident that everyone would love these palette as well.

      Let me do the hard work for you 🙂

    Hi Donna I emailed you personally

  18. Virginia Graziano says:

    Donna, I love tans, creams, browns. I’d like a whole house pallet, I want very pretty colors not to dark. I can send the house to you and if you have ideas?

  19. Marilyn Crawford says:

    I love this colours can you tell me the name of the paints for all of the rooms

    The one on the KITCHEN looks like revere pewter, i have that color in my LR & KT, love it.

  22. amcken3 says:

    I would like to know the names of the BM yellows but can’t see paying for that. I have cancer and my husband has MS, we have to purchase Benjamin Moore paint because its the only zero VOC paint in the area we have to move to to be near family (caregivers) and prayerfully get well. The paint is expensive enough without having to pay you and the company for samples. I am not trying to be rude. I am sure some people can afford extra costs like that.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      I’m so sorry you and your husband are in poor health. I design many color palettes for clients who have health issues such as cancer, ADHA and depression. These are very specific color palettes. Maybe you’d be interested in a smaller, healing color palette instead of this larger coastal palette? Please email me if this is something that resonates with you and I’ll see if I can accommodate you ❤

  23. Asha raika says:

    Awesome idea…loved thm

  24. Angie Carlotta says:

    I can justify paying for your professional opinion once you have taken a look at my home and situation like we all have sensory issues. Is that possible, or do I just have the option to purchase the names on a palette I like?
    Some ppl are so rude and dont want to pay for your professional oppinion. Its called a consultant. Move on from them, plenty who will.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      You have both options. You can purchase the coastal color palette and place them where you’d like or purchase a virtual and let me choose the colors for you based on your decor and furnishings. Let me know Angie 🙂

    Oh how I love this pallet and ironically it sums up our home! We have some carmel tones in our window trim and fireplace. Now I know why it works so well together. I’ve also added a splash of brighter rusty orange in the summer to make it fun. Change up my pillows and throws with the season changes in MN and it’s perfect. Thank you for sharing!

    • Donna Frasca says:

      You are a natural at color selection! That’s awesome and better yet, I love how happy you are to see these colors. This is what color SHOULD be about – feeling good and making us happy. Enjoy!

    What are your credentials? What makes you a colour expert? How do you justify charging to name colours using a company’s products on Pinterest? IMO you are just playing on people’s lack of self-confidence…nothing more than a con artist.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      30+ years of Interior Design experince, degrees and certification in color and design with tons of field experience. And dude, think about it – I’m selling THEIR product. Also, people who actually need color help and are tired of making costly mistakes appreciate my services so please do me a favor and get off my blog and go to back to your beige home.

  27. Donna Frasca says:

    I could but then I’d put myself out of a job lol

  28. Kristy Guest says:

    Donna if I sent you a picture of rooms in my house, you could suggest a color for them? We have an old house- 100 years old… lots of wood trim. I want it to feel light and airy not dark. I went on a home tour and everything was light and BM Gray Owl was a popular color. I really liked it, but don’t think it would go in this house. 😦

  29. Harry Bosch says:

    Donna is a color expert. That’s how she makes her living. I find some of the negative comments silly and/or hilarious. All you naysayers want free stuff I guess. My goodness, she’s shown you the swatches on your computer screens and yet you still complain!

    • Donna Frasca says:

      That’s ok Harry and thank you for your support. Most of the negative comments are here because people are used to seeing graphics that include names. I am the only Designer that that I know of, that is 100% color and yes, it’s how I make my living which is why I don’t share the names. I appreciate you Harry 🙂

  30. Lisa Sforza says:

    I love the yellow! Can you give me the color name?

  31. Erica says:

    Wow what click bait. Don’t waste your time even reading this. The colors aren’t listed and you have to EMAIL her so Donna can then stalk and solicite you. Good job Donna. You just wasted our time.

    • Lol, no not really Erica. This is how I make my living which is why I don’t list the names here. You can read that ALL over my blog. As far as emails, once a color transaction is complete, I bless you on your way, no stalking happens because I don’t even have a newsletter 🙂

      As far as “wasting time” if you find yourself spending a little too much time in the paint store trying to find a really pretty coastal color palette, you’ll know where to find one because I did all the work for you 😉

  32. Annette says:

    What are the names of the colors?

    • It says it in the post “Remember to sample out all your colors before you commit to painting. This color palette is available for purchase for $15 for each color. If you would like this color palette that I designed, that will be $105. It’s a really great way to choose color for your home and take the guess-work about of wondering if your choices are right. Remember, undertones can be tricky!”

    I think you are all crazy. This is a gift to know what blends in your home. They are called a Colorist to help one get the right colors the client’s want. With so many shades now we need these Colorists. They can give you the right blend and hues or undertones. See none of you even get it. You pay for your hair color advice, paint colors are crazy. Keep on going Donna charge for their guess work. Great job, now what was the colors? 😂😅🤣😉

    • Donna Frasca says:

      You are so sweet and I appreciate you! I’ve spent over 30 years with color – knowing it, using it and finding out what works and what doesn’t. Everyone else, days? Weeks? Let them find out on their own and when they spend thousands on their home and it clashes or “feels” off, they’ll realize they should have hired a professional. It’s ok! I am here for those who trust in experience, everyone else can explore their own options.

    I have no idea why people are treating this color consultant so rudely. A person running an online business shouldn’t have to defend their business. In order to design color palettes one must have a talent for it…that’s why most homeowners are unable to get it right on the first try. The consultant must understand the color wheel, the weight and value of color, and the effect lighting has on color. Most consultants online offer you a two color palette which you pay for and many don’t offer whole house palettes at all. In addition, real estate agents and house builders pay big bucks for color consultations and paint color recommendations. Also, cabinet makers hire color consultants when cabinets are to be painted for historic homes. The cabinet maker does not pick the colors himself. So, yes, color consultations are a real business.
    Haven’t any of you toured model homes? A color consultant was paid to choose the color palette for the home and that service costs thousands of dollars as the wrong colors can make or break the house sale. The color palette is the foundation for the interior design of the new home. It’s something only a few people have a talent for. And from what I see, Donna is very talented and has a great eye for color. In addition, she has given lots of free advice to many people.

    • Donna Frasca says:

      Gia you are so sweet! Thank you for your kind words, after 30 years of Interior Design, I’m used to people complaining – because they eventually turn into clients.
      Colorful hugs to you!
