KOHLER, Wis. - Two premium North American home brands have once again teamed up to provide interior design inspiration to homeowners and design enthusiasts. With Collaboration in Full Color Volume 2, Kohler Co. and Benjamin Moore offer ideas for balancing outstanding style with intriguing pieces and sensible function providing assistance to consumers by transforming vision into reality. This is the second installment from Kohler Co. and Benjamin Moore, each including a kitchen and a bathroom with the complete details on products and finishes used to simplify the selection process.

With three inspiring lifestyles – Natural State, Soft Focus and Desert Departure – the two companies have produced a 32 page-magalog sourcing inspiration from Californian style.


Natural State - A calming reprieve from daily life, this seaside home captures the soothing and tranquil feeling of watching the ocean tides turn. Sandbar colored fixtures throughout the home create a fluid style and earthy neutral hues are easy to build a style around.

Soft Focus -  An ode to the glamour of a bygone era, this 1920s foothill manor gives its own definition to classical beauty. An appreciation for history and detail is balanced with clean lines and a need to be original.

Desert Departure -  An escape from the desert’s rising temperatures, this mid-century modern home sets a new standard of cool with its color palette and attitude. Strong blues, whites and grays interspersed with glass accents and subtle textures create an uncomplicated and confident sensibility.

“Collaboration in Full Color continues to deliver inspiring content and tools from two industry leaders known for innovation, color and design leadership,” said Benjamin Moore Creative Director Ellen O’Neill. “We feel that homeowners are becoming more bold and energetic with their color choices and we are happy to offer inspiration to escort them through the process.”

“There’s so much more to great design than a room’s finished appearance,” said Tristan Butterfield, creative director for Kohler. “Great design should use what inspires you to bring personality, comfort and beauty into your home.”

The content and tools created through this collaboration are available now online by visiting Kohler.com/Ideas as well as in Kohler showrooms.
