Ben vs. Sherwin 2.0

Fall has arrived in the ATL – over the last week or so, mornings have been chilly. I’ve finally retired my sandals, and I have brought out the ballet flats. Today, I wore a light jacket almost the whole day – but it still gets warm mid-afternoon. I’m on the cusp of bringing out my boots and cashmere from storage, but I’m not quite ready to put my flip flops away for the season!

So, Here is Ben vs. Sherwin part deux. I definitely still have a bias towards Ben Moore at this point, but as I use it more often, I’m softening up to Sherwin Williams. I think Sherwin Williams has great colors – the biggest challenge to me has been to get familiar with their fan deck. Here are some more Sherwin Williams versions of my favorite Benjamin Moore colors.
