Soft yellows from Benjamin Moore~ Hawthorne Yellow, Weston Flax, Concord Ivory!

Yellows can range from very pale to very bold and bright. I like to paint walls with buttery, creamy yellows  rather than the harsher, brighter ones. They provide a nice warm feeling in a room, yet are neutral enough to go well with a variety of other accent colors. Today I am going to show you some rooms painted in some soft Benjamin Moore yellows. These yellows are all from their Historical collection, which I find to be more muted and neutral than some of their other color collections. First up is a very popular Benjamin Moore color named Hawthorne Yellow. It can look rather bright in full sunlight, but it is a very pretty yellow.

One more shade of yellow from Benjamin Moore is Concord Ivory HC12. This is a deeper, warmer shade, which appears to have more tan in it. Notice how it looks in different light. Looks like a different color! That's why its important to always get a sample and paint a board, then look at it in different parts of your room and at different times of the day. You may be surprised at the variations in color.
