2009 Color Contest winner Beth used Behr paint in her "Kind of Blue Living Room." (She can't remember the exact color name.) We've used Irish Mist, a silvery gray/off-white in our old living room, Jamaican Sea for a couple of painted furniture projects, and Chocolate Froth, a light latte-colored brown, in our old bedroom.
Since 1978, Behr's paints have been sold through HomeDepot. For more information about colors and finishes, click here.
