Favorite Paint Color ~ Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments

Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments

Happy hues-day, friends!  It's Tuesday, so that means today is Favorite Color Day here on the blog!  A different color is featured each week. Today's color is Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments, #1563.  It's one of my very favorites.

Quiet Moments is a very soft, muted gray with a hint of blue and a tiny touch of green. One of Benjamin Moore's most popular colors, here's what one pinner says about it:

"My favorite color ever. The outcome depends on many factors such as lighting and wood tones in the room. This color also takes on undertones from fabrics in the room. In my bathroom it looks suede blue but in my living room it looks like dull seafoam."

Give your dining room a classic and elegant aura by painting the walls with Quiet Moments. It works for all seasons and with any design style.

For a refreshing bathroom, Quiet Moments is a great paint color choice. It's soft and elegant and looks wonderful with the crisp white trim paint and bathtub. 

Who doesn't want Quiet Moments in the bedroom?  It pairs nicely with the cottage-y whites in this serene room.

The Quiet Moment walls are the perfect complement to the warm wood floors and white trim in this remodeled kitchen and eating area from The Idea Room.

In this living room it takes on a more sophisticated look with the black piano and sleek furnishings.

This traditional kitchen is gorgeous.  I love the dark wood floors and the Moroccan looking tiles on the back-splash.  The Quiet Moments doesn't overwhelm the room but instead makes a nice subtle backdrop for all of the other items in the space.

I want to be sitting here, drinking my coffee in the morning...or maybe my wine in the evening.  The Quiet Moments on the ceiling is reminiscent of an old Southern farmhouse.  The whole porch is just lovely!

This kitchen is such a fun and lively space with the mint green, vintage-looking stove.  And the orange lights add just the right pop of color.  Again, the Quiet Moments is a nice subtle backdrop for everything else going on in the space.

And last but not least, here it is used inside of our home office closet that we recently transformed. The trim color is Benjamin Moore Soft Chamois. You can go here to see more of that space.

So what do you think of this color?  Would you use it in a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, anywhere? 

As with any color, always try a sample first.  And never choose a color based on a photo seen on a computer.  Lighting and editing as well as screen setting in online images may make them appear different than they look in reality.

  1. Such a pretty color! I have a friend who is moving into a new home and all the walls are gray.

    1. I love this color too! Is she keeping the walls gray or changing the color? Gray is so "in" these days!

  2. It's beautiful. Seems very blue. I think I will consider it for my porch ceiling.

    1. It looks gray on the color swatch, but the blue shows up when the walls are painted with it. It would be great for a porch ceiling!

  3. Beautiful color. I really love that porch and how the color goes so.well with all the pieces!!!

  4. I'm in Canada and cannot find either Quiet Moments OR colour #1563 in the Benjamin Moore fan deck. Please help.

    1. Hi Sara,

      Benjamin Moore has several color fan decks so it might not be on the one you're looking at. Quiet Moments is part of the Classic Color Collection Fan Deck. I hope that helps! ~ Angie

  5. Hi Angie
    Would this color do well in a north facing bedroom and east facing bathroom?

  6. Would this color look good with charcoal buffalo check bedding?


I love hearing from you, and your comments make my day!
