The Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection recreates the colors that defined the early years of our nation.
These distinctive colors still influence design today with their array of vibrant hues, rich shades and classic neutrals. Whether you live in a colonial-style home or use this timeless palette to complement modern architecture and furnishings, the Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection never goes out of style.
The infancy of a nation. The birth of a color legacy.
Together with preservationists at the The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Benjamin Moore’s chemists and color experts examined 18th-century wallpaper, original paint samples and historical documents to accurately recreate colors found in early American design.
Bassett Hall Green CW-480, shown on the walls of this stairwell, with risers in Geddy Gray CW-720, reflect how the traditional paint colors of the Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection can combine distinct colors for a fresh and sophisticated look.
An Enduring Palette
All of the 144 colors in the Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection can be
found exclusively at Benjamin Moore retailers.
A Vivid Past
Research led to the development of deeply saturated paint colors not typically associated with colonial America. Why? New technologies uncovered evidence that historic pigments were more saturated than originally thought. From there, Benjamin Moore chemists—working with The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation—calculated precise formulas to match the original, authentic colors.
A stunning example of the depth of color unearthed by Colonial Williamsburg research is seen here in this powder room, painted in Carter Plum CW-355.
