In 2011 Darryl Carter teamed with Benjamin Moore to introduce a curated color palette grouped into six families - white, gray-green, blue, khaki, greige and accent.  The collection has grown to 48 colors and is prominently featured in his newest book, The Collected Home: Rooms with Style, Grace, and History.  The color choices reflect Carter's impeccable eye for restrained, nuanced color and the complete palette is harmonious and cohesive.

However, when I headed to my local Benjamin Moore store I couldn't locate the paints by their Darryl Carter names which all end with a DC code.  Luckily they had one pamphlet in the back and let me borrow the store copy to "translate" the DC (Darryl Carter) codes to  BM codes for future, easy reference.  As you can see above, Darryl Carter's Georgetown Blue DC-31 is Woodlawn Blue HC 147 in Benjamin Moore's parallel universe.

Moonlight White 2143-60 (and OC 125), a long time Carter favorite, is Huntington White DC-02.
Tamarack Gray DC-45 is aka Whale Gray 2134-40 and Bullock Gray is DC-46 is Anchor Gray 2126-30.
I don't think you could ever go wrong with a Darryl Carter color.  So, since it's a holiday and I have a little bit of time on my hands , here's the complete list if you're interested.

**I've received a few emails from readers asking about the type of BM paint.  My BM store told me it can be done in any of the BM paint types while other stores have said to use the AURA base.  Just mentioning that so you'll have this info when you make your choice.
