Martha Stewart Paint Colors

I was informed today by Jules that the new line of Martha Stewart paint colors is now at The Home Depot. People, do you realize how excited about paint swatches as I get?

Martha Stewart Paint Colors

There is no fan deck available for purchase, so getting the full line requires standing there in the paint isle and grabbing one of each color. It’s a little ridiculous, really.

Of course, it’s not the first time I’ve done such a thing for Ms. Martha. I still have the entire line of discontinued Valspar colors too.

The new line is completely different from the old. I’m not a fan of the pinks (and you know how I love pink) nor the purples, but the blues, greens, and neutrals are beautiful.

    I love her colors, too. My kitchen is one of her older colors – Sea of Grass.

    My kids each get to pick 3 colors every time we go to Home Depot (a short-lived distraction). And we get dirty looks for that…I can’t imagine taking one of each. I’m too much of a wimp!

    Wow, I can’t believe you are able to take one of each swatch! Do the employees stare you down?

    But now that I know someone else does it, maybe I’ll make like a bandit and try the same thing. Hmmm. We just have to make sure to not the same Home Depot in Chicagoland. Then we may get in trouble.

      I am a Home Depot Paint Associate and in my store we do not have a problem with customers taking home as many paint chips as they like, I have even mentioned at times, they can take them all home, if that is what it takes to help with their paint choices. Besides, the paint reps keep the chips fully stocked.

    Ha! I recently heard that they had discontinued (and thus marked down) Ralph Lauren paint, so I went to Home Depot last night hoping to score some deals. Alas, it was already gone, but I took some of the Martha swatches to test out for my new living room. I’m very pleased to report that after 5 long months of indecision, I think I may have finally settled on the right color – Whetstone Gray. Martha to the rescue!

    I’m hoping her paint quality is better here than when they carried it at Sears. Every color ended up needing 4 coats, and I used primer! I ended up having them match her colors (because they are wonderful) and mix it in a different brand of paint.

    They do have a Martha Stewart Living complete paint palette brochure that I scored when I was at HD this week. It has all the paint color ships in it, but they are only about 1″ x 1 1/2″.
    I also have to say that some of my favorite colors from the former lines at Sherwin Williams and Valspar are gone.. like Aracuna, Bone China and Kraft.

    Laughing because I did this two days ago and my three year old son kept asking me if I was done yet and why I needed so many. I was feeling pretty sheepish, but I wanted them! I actually didn’t grab any of the pinks and purples because I didn’t like them either. Eventually, I’ll go in and get them.

    Paint swatches are so fun. sometimes I turn them into modern wall art by arranging them, artistically of course, and elevating some of them with a little piece of foam for a 3-D look, in a shadow box frame and hanging it on the wall. Valspar paint is my all-time favorite as far as quality. Covers in one coat. LOVE.IT. But collecting ANY brand of swatches is fun. Trip to Lowe’s is in my future…

    I have done that for her Valspar line, as well as the Seasside Retreat and Laura Ashley ones. And Ralph Lauren. I use a hole puncher and put them in sets on one of those big circle key ring deals. It makes it so easy to read colors in a room when you have all the swathes with you.

    Bummer about the pinks though. I was looking forward to them. But her blues are always so great.

    Makes me happy I have the Valspar line because the pinks were so pretty.

    Hey Nicole,
    I was lucky enough to snag a MS complete paint palette booklet. Our Home Depot just got her line in stock 2 days before we were purchasing paint for our soon-to-be nursery. I was going to choose Benjamin Moore Natura line but at $52 per gallon, it was a no-brainer when I saw Martha’s paint for $27.97! We’re painting this weekend if it doesn’t rain.

    I love it! I was just in Lowe’s trying to get another gallon of my favorite Martha color and I was told that it was discontinued. No more Martha. I was sad. Not because I’m a Martha worshipper, but girlfriend does know how to pick colors and her colors (especially the light blue range) blow away Ben Moore’s line. I posted about that a while ago on my blog. Thank you for letting us know that Martha is back at Lowes. This is, indeed, happy news!

    I still have every color from her Kmart and SW lines. If I knew she was leaving Lowes I would have snagged each card thier too. I did my hall, living and dining rooms in her colors. I loved her SW line. Never used her line of paint bc I have a favorite brand. It just so happens we are ready to paint again (stage to sell) and I’m in need of warm neutrals! BM Shaker Beige and Lenox Tan are not cutting it for me so I now have some hope with MS!!!
    Ladies, the cards are free, so what if someone looks at you. Free is free.

    I am only partially embarrassed to say that I still have all the paint swatches from her Sherwin-Williams line. Well, not ALL of them, but I have all of them that they had when I went in.

    My living room is currently Stoneware from that line and I am considering Graph Paper(kitchen), Mica (bedroom), and Scrim (bathrooms).

    Although, now I might have to check out the new colors to make sure I don’t like any of them better. ;)

    While I haven’t gone to a store and picked up a swatch in every color, I did pick up every shade of white at Home Depot in all the brands they carry. It was a lot of paint swatches! And I didn’t get any weird looks or stare downs at all (although, I did ask the associate what was their most popular color for trim and his response was “white”, haha!).

    I totally did this yesterday! Okay, not every single swatch from the collection, but probably close to 2/3. I looked through them all like I was actually picking them out, so I probably looked legitimate :) I did take all the greens and blues, though, they are pretty! I love how they have the ceiling and trim suggestions on the back. I guess a lot of other paints have coordinating colors on the back of the swatch, but I like Martha’s combinations better. And I also admit to still having a few from her line at Sherwin-Williams… I also recognized some of the same paint names at HD. I wonder if they are actually the same colors? I didn’t pick them up, thinking I already had them… now I wish I did!

    I had my husband pick up every color at Home Depot! I was too shy. He said that no one looked at him strangely. I guess men don’t care.

    I LOVE these colors. Each color belongs to one of six color-coordinated groups, and the groups are identified by a little symbol on the color card.

    My red oak flooring matches Cornucopia and Graham Cracker Crust, which are both in the group identified by a little apple symbol. So I chose my wall colors from the “apple” group to complement my floor. I have Sisal and Crevecoeur in my living room, dining room, and hallway. I have Cityscape in my kitchen and bathroom. I am using the other colors to help guide me in choosing the perfect accessory colors! It’s a designer’s dream.

    My husband just did this for me and was questioned by the paint department manager. My husband wasn’t deterred, though, and we came home with the complete set. The manager seemed perplexed and in disbelieve as he watched my husband.

    I’ve looked at various websites that have had lengthy debates about the subject – taking what is free vs. stealing store property. After this morning, I don’t know what I think. Easy for me to say now that I have the whole set!

    I did look on the Home Depot website and a fan deck is available for $40.

Do you know if you have idea what the yellow color would of been? I am thinking if I heard the color I’d remember if it was correct or not. I am not finding any other search on line so I’d appreciate the help. I have a small area to touch up and did not really want to paint the whole ceiling as it’s a large room. I guess I would also need the paint numbers or what ever the store needs to make it up.. Thanks so much.

    Hi Nicole-
    I have a Martha Stewart from Lowe’s paint color in my open living room/dining room/kitchen. We have done some remodeling and need to do some touch up painting. I don’t have enough in the can to do everything, so I took it into Lowe’s to have them make another gallon. Well, they said they no longer even have the formula in the computer to do it, and had to “color match” it. I started painting yesterday, and it’s not even close to the real color. Do you still have the entire fan deck of the colors? I’m desperately trying to find more information for the formula or something so that I can fix my room. The color was something like hemp or pottery or something. I’d know looking at it – it’s a tan color (coffee with lots of cream?). Thanks for the help hopefully! E-mail me directly if you can.
