Washington, DC-based designer Darryl Carter is known for guiding clients to the perfect neutral shades (see Palette & Paints: Darryl Carter's Favorite Whites); now he's gone a step further with an endorsed line of paint colors from Benjamin Moore. Carter, a longstanding fan of Benjamin Moore paints ("Who else offers over two hundred shades of white?" he says. "It's a marriage made in heaven"), has selected his favorite go-to colors, a collection of neutrals that offers complementing color gradation and progression. As an added bonus, the colors, anticipated to be released this fall, are available in Benjamin Moore's low-VOC, waterborne, nearly odorless Natura formulation.
