Swiss Coffee! I’ll take 22 ounces, please.

A longtime bestseller, Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee is a creamy, slightly gray off-white, similar to the company’s very popular White Dove and Vanilla Milkshake.

Here’s what interior designer Schuyler Samperton says about Swiss Coffee:

I did this in a guesthouse where the previous owner had put in nasty fake terra-cotta tile. You know that icky pale pink color? It drove me nuts! I painted it white and did driftwood-colored wicker furniture with blue-and-white fabric. It completely transformed the space.

Above, designer Eric Cohler used Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee in this Park Avenue bedroom. The layout feels kind of hotel-ish, but it’s a hotel I’d gladly stay in, Eric! Ha, ha, ha.

On this vintage dresser, above, designer Robert Willson accented the handles and frame with Swiss Coffee and painted the drawer fronts Winter White, also by Benjamin Moore. He used flat paint topped with three coats of semigloss clear coat to control the sheen.
