I'm looking for a paint color used on one of the room displays and I'm hoping someone can help me find out how to purchase it.
The plaque on the wall identifies it as NCSS1502 B50G. I was told in the store that it was a universal code that could be used to mix the paint. I've gone to Lowe's and Home Depot, but they could find nothing using that paint number.
It looks like it's called an NCS Colour Code and it's European.
I found this converter: i2 STUDIOS | Architecture Visualisation
which will take the NCS code and translate it into RGB values.
Then you could take it to: EasyRGB - The inimitable RGB and COLOR search engine!
enter the RGB values and find a commercial (North American) paint color that's close.
Check out a sample in your home's lighting before making a final decision, but I think that will point you in the right direction.
Thanks for the compliment. This is fun and I found some new color tools to play with.
IKEA (in the US anyway) uses Benjamin Moore paints exclusively, so once you are able to convert, you can find the exact paint.
I'm curious what store uses the NCS system to communicate paint color... I'm in the design department at an IKEA store, and thought it was standard to communicate the BM color. Is the store in the States?
I know this is a looooong shoot but
looking to have my living room look like the picture and i need the color code I know is Bm because that's the one they use but I need the exact color, is in the current catalogue.
