Bradstreet Beige
Clarissa sent in a question for the Apartment Therapy color lovers. She writes: Hi AT, I need your help! I am trying to pick a new paint color for my studio apartment. I currently have Benjamin Moore Bradstreet Beige on th walls, and have grown tired of the color. The warm shade seems to enclose the space...

I have tried at least 5 different samples from BM ranging from a pinky white to a blue grey and I still can't figure out which color works best. My apartment has south-facing windows and gets a lot of natural light. What are the best colors/undertones that will open up a small space but won't get completely washed out?

Please share your color advice and suggestions with Clarissa in the comments below...thanks!
