Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee

Got a few requests to talk about Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee.

These came shortly after posting about the best creamy wall paint colors to use in your home.

Since Swiss Coffee was one of these colors, a few people asked if I could show more examples and discuss it further here.

I actually really like putting these paint review posts together.

So, I’m more than happy to talk about Swiss Coffee here today.

Luckily, I found these photos of our dining room, before we wallpapered it.

The walls here are, you guessed it – Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee.

Why do people love Swiss Coffee so much?

Here’s a quick breakdown to help you decide if this is what you’re looking for:

It has virtually no yellow in it, unlike many other white paints.

This color is the type of neutral which will literally work with everything and all styles.

It’s considered a very versatile white for a reason!

Swiss Coffee looks great with modern, transitional, traditional, cottage, farmhouse – you get the picture!

It’s not a cool, stark white – but rather a beige, warm white.

This is exactly why so many professional designers love it so much.

We also have this beautiful subtle color on our hallway walls and it continues up the stairs to our finished attic.

Like most center hall colonial homes, the lighting is not great in this hallway so I tried to take two different angles to give you a better sense.

This is a gentle cream color which contrasts perfectly with our dark hardwood floors.

The trim here is painted in my favorite white, Benjamin Moore White Dove.

Is Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee A Good Wall Paint Color?

The short answer is YES!

Here’s why…

I think it’s such a beautiful soft white which works in so many different style homes.

Ultimately you need to love it.

Before you begin painting your walls, I can’t recommend trying it out first as a sample in your home enough.

Maybe this seems so obvious, but even the surrounding light from one from one room to another can differ.

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

Test it in natural and artificial light too!

I always recommend using these Samplize adhesive paint samples.

The Samplize non-damaging adhesive backing allows for viewing in multiple locations and in different lighting without marking up your walls!
Produced with genuine manufacturer paint.

Such a brilliant product!

No messy paint cans and brushes to deal with!

If you’re at all curious, you can check them out and order them here.

I tend to use a lot of Benjamin Moore paints, but I have nothing against Farrow and Ball or Sherwin Williams paint, or any other well known paint brand.

These brands all offer similar cream color options and can be found over on Samplize as well!

I hope you found this post helpful.

If you do end up using BM Swiss Coffee OC-45 in your home, let me know! I’d love to see it.

What Color Goes Well With Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee?

Browns, tans and terra cotta earth tones look best with Swiss Coffee.

I also love how deep charcoal grays and dark navy blues look with this creamy white paint color.

Swiss Coffee is a great paint color choice for kitchen cabinets.

However, it might look too bright as an exterior white paint color choice, if your home is in direct, bright sunlight.
