Meet the Brilliant Collaborators Behind Benjamin Moore and Luxe Interiors + Design’s Faces of Design 2023


NEW YORK, Sept. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Benjamin Moore and Luxe Interiors + Design today unveiled the remarkable teams starring in the second annual Faces of Design program.

At the heart of impactful design lies a crucial, often unsung element: collaboration. Nowhere is this more beautifully demonstrated than in the dynamic interplay between an interior designer and a paint contractor. Once the designer meticulously selects the perfect hue to harmonize with the architecture, materials, furnishings, and accessories of their project, the skilled paint contractor takes the reins. Their profound grasp on application techniques, chemical composition, layering, and more brings the envisioned design to life. When the paths of a gifted interior designer and a talented paint contractor converge, armed with a high-performance product, the result is a true fusion of art and science.

Within this omni-channel campaign, ten amazing design teams take center stage to highlight the unique viewpoints, artistry, and passion for color and shade that infuse every single project they undertake together. The Faces of Design campaign will be featured Nationally in the September/October 2023 issue of Luxe Interiors + Design, along with video, digital, and social across Luxe Interiors + Design platforms.


Said Kate Kelly Smith, EVP, Managing Director, Luxe Interiors + Design, “The Benjamin Moore Faces of Design partnership is perfectly aligned with our mission; championing the art of elevated living and inspiring our audience to connect with those who create it.  We are proud to feature this year’s 21 incredible Interior Designers and talented Painting Contractors in custom photo and video shoots from across North America.”
