Benjamin Moore Nightfall is one of my favorite paint colors! Benjamin Moore describes it as “a blackened gray infused with the serene mystique of midnight”. That’s a fancy way of saying that it’s a dark charcoal gray that looks black in most light. It’s not a “dark hole” kind of black but rather a soft, muted black. Next to crisp white trim, it looks amazing!
Benjamin Moore Nightfall was recommended to me when I was on the hunt for a great black paint for our home office. I threw it up on the wall along with 4-5 other samples and it was the clear winner!
I think one of the keys to using it is to pair it with lighter woods and whites to keep the space from looking too dark and heavy. It’s a paint color that I’d highly recommend and will definitely consider using again in the future.

AS French Linen almost made my list too, I think I’ve used it three times, and it’s always so pretty! I think I’m going to have to try Nightfall, I’ve always wanted to paint a room black and it would be the perfect baby step for me! : )

Nightfall is so pretty! I have White Dove on my kitchen cabinets and I am very happy with the Manchester Tan I have in my kitchen and family room.
I love the graphite paint from Annie Sloan and all of her colours overall!

Thanks for sharing that Chantal – I’ve never used AS’s Graphite color before but it looks so pretty!

Would the Nightfall be a good choice for painting hallway /bedroom doors?
Kris Jarrett says
Hi Barbara! I’ve never used it in a satin or semigloss on doors but one that I have seen that I love is Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron!
