So, am wondering if I can avoid the delay by securing some directly from the manufacturer. I understand Benjamin Moore used to make RH paint, until 2007 or so. Not sure who does it now.


According to this place, it's Rodda Paint Co. **shrug** I have no idea if it's accurate or not.

They have a website

I have also used Ralph Lauren paint, from HD, with excellent results, but really like the RH shades. (Flax and Cappuchino) Does anyone have experience with either Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore? Have also used Behr, but wasn't overly impressed with the result.


If you want to try Benjamin Moore paint (but RH colors), I found a listing of alleged color matches.

Color Matches For Restoration Hardware paint by Benjamin Moore unless otherwise noted:

Atmosphere Blue - Gentle Gray 1626. New: Iced Slate 2130-60.

Butter - Precious Ivory 185 OR Golden Straw2152-50 which slightly more gray but a good match. No new matches.

Butter Cream - Blossom Tint 933. No new matches.

Caffe Creme - Spanish White 943. No new matches.

Celery - Hawthorn Green 379 or Stanhope Yellow 280 (both very good, but not spot on). No new matches.

Creamware - Consentino Chardonnay 247. No new matches.

Latte - This is a new color and funcolors spec'd Crisp Khaki 234 as a close match and client was happy with it in comparison to her RH Latte chip. She nailed this.

Lavender - Same story as above spec'd BenM Porcelain 2113-60. This is now Pale Lavender and matches Venetian Marble 2114-70. I like the old Lavender better.

Saffron - Same story, but spec'd BenM Chestertown Buff HC-9. Nailed it again.

Silver Birch - Healing Aloe 1562. No new matches.
