The Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection fuses Revolutionary design with Revolutionary paint, transporting colors from the past to enhance contemporary living.

To fuse authentic, early American design history with Benjamin Moore paint colors, we collaborated with The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Our shared dedication to understanding the 18th and early 19th centuries’ rich color pigments led us to curate the 144-color Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection and bring timeless beauty to your home.
The infancy of a nation. The birth of a color legacy.

Williamsburg® paint colors still influence design today with their array of vibrant hues, rich shades and classic neutrals. Whether you live in a Colonial-style home or need an historical backdrop to your contemporary furniture, our authentic recreations are a tried-and-true palette that never goes out of style.

A Vivid Past

Research led to the development of intense Williamsburg® paint colors not typically associated with Colonial America. Why? New technologies uncovered evidence that historic pigments were more saturated than originally thought. From there, Benjamin Moore scientists—working with The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation—calculated precise formulas to accurately recreate the original colors.
