Back today with another wall paint color feature – Benjamin Moore Lavender Ice.

I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback on these paint color posts.

So glad you are finding these helpful.

And, I’m more than happy to do more!

Which brings me to today’s color: Benjamin Moore Lavender Ice.

 

The first time using this pale purple paint.

Just like so many other paint color choices we’ve made, I first used this pretty pale purple paint color (can never resist a little alliteration!) back in our former home in New York.

You can see it in the image of my old home office above.

I’ve always considered pale lavender to be such a chic color. Something a little different without being too outrageous.

We tweaked this paint color, by halfing it with white paint.

This created a more subtle version of the original.

More on this below…

 

 

Second time with Benjamin Moore’s pretty lavender shade.

Having loved the look of this paint color in my little office, I decided to go with it again in my younger daughter’s room.

Above is a photo of her old room in our former house.

I’m a little partial, but I do think Benjamin Moore’s Lavender Ice is perfect for a girl’s bedroom!

Third time using Benjamin Moore Lavender Ice.

Going with this elegant paint option again in my current home office was a “no brainer.”

Just like the other paint colors we chose to repeat here in our current home (for example: Benjamin Moore Calm – which you can read about and see here) –

Because, quite often there’s no need to reinvent the (color) wheel!

This image of my office above (taken by Leslie Unruh from our feature on One Kings Lane) shows off this pale color so perfectly.

I also included a picture I took on my phone the same day – below!

However, I’m not sure if you’re able to tell how steep and somewhat strange the walls in my office are.

They’re like an attic, in that the ceiling slants on both sides.

Due to how unusual this space is, we chose to go with Lavender Ice on all the angles and the ceiling.

In a more typical room with a flat ceiling, I would go with white.  You can read more about ceiling paint colors here.

So that’s pretty much it, as far as my love for this fun paint color.

This is another great example of using a color you love several times, with different grades of white paint added to it.

Benjamin Moore’s Lavender Ice is perfect if you’re looking to paint a room a cool, pale lavender color, to me it’s very soothing.

I recommend playing around with adding different percentages of white, any hardware or paint store will be very familiar with this practice.

Depending on the light and time of day, this paint color can appear to look almost white to solid pale purple.

However, if you’re leaning more towards using a white paint color, you’ll want to check out this post here.

Conclusion

Ultimately you need to love the paint colors you choose for your walls.

Which is why I can’t recommend trying it out as a sample in your home first.

Perhaps this is so obvious, but even the surrounding light from one room to another can differ and therefore change the look of any color.

Live with a few samples for a few days before making your final decision.

Be sure to test the color in natural and artificial light too!

Also, another great way to test out a paint color (while I haven’t personally tried this)  are to get large self sticking paint samples.

This sounds so great!

No messy paint cans to deal with before you commit! Win/win!

If you’re at all curious, you can find them here and try it out as a sample in your home first!

Hopefully, you found this post helpful.

If you do end up using Lavender Ice in your home, let me know!

Even better, send me a photo – I’d love to see it.

By the way, you can always see more of our home right here.
