Characterised by distinctive furniture shapes, wood finishes and a notable colour palette, mid-century design and architecture have stood the test of time and still have a strong presence within today’s interiors. From citrus tones to mellow neutrals, Benjamin Moore’s 3,500 paint shades will help you add a splash of 1950s nostalgia to your home.

For a subtle yet unmistakably mid-century modern mood, team wood finishes with accents of orange and brown tones to create a vibrant yet earthy feel. Paired with a warm, almost neutral, brown on the walls such as Driftwood, your scheme will become a beautifully balanced space reminiscent of a home from the 50s with a twist of modern style. Unquestionably indicative of this retro era, an ochre or chartreuse yellow accent wall combined with wooden kitchen cabinetry or furniture promises to deliver a classic mid-century modern space. For those seeking an earthier feel, pewter greys or deep greens will work just as well when teamed with dark wood and white accents.
Delivering a flawless finish and long lasting colour, Benjamin Moore’s huge range of paints and exceptional products will help you to achieve a standout scheme. Ranging from vibrant hues to pretty pastels, the cheerful shades of a mid-century modern palette are guaranteed to bring a hint of retro charm to your home.
Underpinning all of the fantastic Benjamin Moore product lines is the proprietary Gennex® Waterborne colourant technology. All Benjamin Moore paints are custom mixed, giving customers access to an unrivalled palette of colours. Gennex® colourants fortify the paint to enhance colour durability for a long lasting and resilient finish.
