Color Review for A la Mode 2109-70

A la Mode 2109-70 by Benjamin Moore belongs to the end (ish) of the yellow-red hue family.

You can see where it plots out on The Color Strategist Color Wheel above.

A la Mode is a complex near neutral.

You need to test and evaluate this color carefully.

Place a chip of A la Mode next to blue like Silver Cloud 2129-70 and you’ll see its yellow-red (orange or peachy) hue family character come through loud and clear.

Whereas if you place A la Mode in context of a color like Manchester Tan HC-81, it’s going to look purple.

If it looks like a toasty warm near neutral and true to it’s hue family notation or if it shifts, will depend on what it’s next to and the quality of light.

Don’t even consider this color unless you’re in a position to choose your paint color absolutely dead last in your project.

In other words, you should have floors, counter tops, rugs, upholstered items, art – fixed finishes and the contents of the room – in installed so you can paint samples and test A la Mode in your space with your all your stuff in place.

I like to use SwatchRight circle-shaped, paint-peel-and-stick color sample decals for testing color.

The circle shape is engineered to help you zero in on color.
