I've always loved Benjamin Moore, but now...
If you don't know how to paint, don't fear...Aura is the new paint by Benjamin Moore and is one of the greatest paints ever made. With it's "color - locking" technology you can paint almost any room with one coat and no primer!! That's right, which I love because A. I majored in interior design, not painting and B. It makes painting your apartment super easy. The other great advantage is that you don't have to paint with a wet edge, in other words you can do as many touch-ups as you need, and no one will know the difference (this has always been an issue that could never be resolved until now)! BM also launched a new line of colors specifically for this paint (I guess they were pretty proud of it)...I've been told you can pull any three colors out of the new fan deck, and they will all work together! I've used this product myself and believe me it is well worth it. It's a little pricier than most paints (about $60.00 a gallon) but this is basically what you would spend on paint, primer, and your precious time. Ok, enough of me being a sells woman...just try it, I promise you will love it!
(If you have any questions...ask me more. I had to sit through an hour long seminar on this about a year ago right before it came out, at least it helped me in the long run)
