A while back we posted popular paint colors in Manhattan using Benjamin Moore’s top selling eggshell product and we got a lot of whites. This time around we went through the records of the new Aura and Natura product lines specifically the colors from the Affinity color deck. Professional painters prefer products like these for deeper colors and cutomers prefer these popular interior paint colors for their low odor and eco-friendly properties. We hoped to get a greater variety of colors including those people use the most for accent walls. We were not disappointed.

All of these popular interior paint colors are tinted using an entirely different tint system which allows the paints to be very environmentally friendly. The colors are mixed uniformly throughout the paint film so the paints wear better too. With a couple of exceptions, the colors can be mixed in any Benjamin Moore product line but we recommend that the darker colors be done in Aura as you will ultimately save both material and labor.
