Consumers can further explore Benjamin Moore palettes to create a space that feels like home. From there, users can also buy paint samples and get design tips to help turn that ideal look into a reality.
"Designing a space is a very personal process inspired by what matters in an your life," said David Melançon, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Whether you're a design enthusiast or a novice choosing colors for your first home, Design By What Matters is a tool you can use to create living spaces that bring your personality, lifestyle and preferences to life virtually before you take the leap of committing to them in real life."
