A heightened colour experience
by Helen Shaw, Marketing Director, Benjamin Moore UK

Benjamin Moore Aura® Colour Stories® is a sophisticated collection of 240 shades, uniquely formulated to accentuate the interplay of light and colour, and to deliver a complex visual dynamic that reveals the colour's true depth, nuance and luminosity.

Aura Colour Stories is a collection for the colour curious; it's for those who appreciate the subjectivity of colour, and all the nuances and variations therein.

Each of the colours are designed to maximise the influence of the light in a room, highlighting subtle undertones and colour characteristics.

The approach to colour formulation is what makes these colours truly unique.
  • Firstly, the precise colour formulations omit black or grey colorants, resulting in a more nuanced approach to colour creation.
  • Secondly, unlike conventional colours which are formulated with around 2-3 pigments, Aura Colour Stories colours are achieved through mixing a blend of approximately 5-7 pigments, which results in greater subtly of undertones and a more complex visual dynamic.
Available exclusively in our Aura interior finishes ®a premium paint synonymous with unsurpassed surface smoothness and rich, true colour ® this colour collection offers a wide range of hues, from saturated and bold to soft pales and neutrals.
