Historical Hue

Located on land deeded by the Rockefeller family in the great leaf-peeping state of Vermont, this new farmhouse built by Smith & Vansant Architects looked to historical homes in the area for inspiration. The house’s exterior color, Bryant Gold, is part of Benjamin Moore’s historical color line.

For this farmhouse kitchen in New Hampshire (another great state for fall foliage), the cabinets underneath the sink and surrounding the range provide a timeless golden glow. These cabinets feature a distressed top coat applied over a base coat. The base coat is Baked Clay, and the distressed top coat is Caramel Corn, both by Benjamin Moore.

Retro Radiance

For fans of retro appliances, the harvest gold color should be quite familiar to you. A popular hue for appliances in the 1960s and ’70s, the gold tone is still seen on appliances in kitchens today. These homeowners didn’t want to part with their favorite appliance, so they had designer Leah Luczynski come up with a color scheme that would make it work in their remodeled kitchen.

Asian All-Star

Since many antique Asian furniture and decor items have gold elements and lacquer finishes, shades of harvest gold work well on surrounding walls to unify a space. Adeeni Design Group used a coat of Dunn-Edwards Butterscotch Syrup for this San Francisco living room.

Good Partner With Wood

This rustic carriage house in upstate New York features beautiful wood ceilings, floors and doors. The decision to mix these wood tones with walls covered in Harvest Gold from the Sherwin-Williams historic collection helps soften the wood without taking away from its overall coziness.
