My Review of Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee
When we began updating our home, the first thing we knew we wanted to do was to update the paint. Our living room was bright teal, the bedroom was a blue-teal, the entryway was a peachy-beige, and don’t even get me started on the other spaces we have yet to update in the house… (More makeovers to come, I guess!)
The first space I painted in this house was the upstairs hallway which was a fairly dark shade of green – kind of like a dark granny smith apple shade. I had wanted to paint it a neutral white tone, but I ended up painting it a very blue-toned white.
While I don’t hate the colour of the hallway now, it’s definitely not the shade I was hoping for and it made me realize that finding the perfect white paint is much trickier than I had expected.
So, when we decided to paint our bedroom last spring, I made sure to not make the same mistake twice. This time, I researched white paint colours and got samples from Benjamin Moore to test out before taking the plunge and getting a full quart of paint.
The two shades I brought home to test were Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace & Swiss Coffee. I ended up finding that Chantilly Lace was much more blue-toned than I had wanted and I was surprised by this because it has been such a notable favourite online.
But, Swiss Coffee was perfect. It was bright, creamy, and fresh-looking without being too cool-toned or too warm. It was the perfect neutral white paint shade and so I decided to move ahead with it for the entire bedroom.
What are the undertones in Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee?
Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee has very soft creamy grey undertones to it with a hint of yellow.
Would I recommend Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee?
Absolutely, yes. If you’re looking for a paint colour that is homey and warm yet still bright and fresh looking then I would highly recommend you check out Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee. If you’re looking for something more crisp and very bright/stark white though, I would recommend looking into Chantilly Lace.
